Dedicated to meeting the comprehensive legal needs of individuals and families throughout central Indiana, I help my clients to secure their rights, protect the lives they have built, provide for their loved ones and plan for their long term needs.
I work with individuals, couples and families in Indianapolis and throughout Indiana to address their life and estate planning and protection needs, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, adoptions, special needs trusts and guardianships.
I provide adoption-related legal services for adoptive parents in a variety of circumstances, including foster parent adoptions, relative adoptions, second parent adoptions and same-sex couple adoptions.
When a loved one dies, I assist executors and trustees in the administration of the probate and non-probate estate or trust. As a general practice lawyer, I accept other types of matters on a case-by-case basis. My mission is to provide quality legal services with the understanding that you have come to me for assistance in matters that are sensitive and personal to you. Each case is handled with care and thoroughness, and I strive to earn your trust with sound legal advice and judgment.
