I grew up in East Grand Rapids, Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor in 2004 and then from Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, Michigan in 2007. Thereafter, I worked at law firms in the Detroit area in their estate and tax planning groups and at a large bank in their charitable advisory group until my family was relocated from Ann Arbor to Dallas, Texas.
Although I currently live in the Dallas area, I am committed to continue to serve Michigan individuals and families in their estate planning needs virtually. I am accessible via email, live chat, video chat, and through a secure online Client Account Portal. Your documents will also be accessible through this portal. Clients, particularly busy parents and working professionals, can appreciate not having to leave their own homes or have their working hours disrupted to meet with an attorney.
As a busy mother of two young boys, I get how busy life is and how hard it is for parents (or really, anyone) to set aside time to assess what happens in the event of death or incapacity. Your “net worth” does not determine whether you need an estate plan. Anyone over the age of 18 needs to plan in the event of death or incapacity. Everyone knows how important it is to save for retirement or an emergency fund and to preserve your nest egg – well, an estate plan is just as important.
I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan, the State Bar of Michigan’s Probate and Estate Section, the Washtenaw County Bar Association, and the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan.
On a lighter note, here is a fun Q & A that I prepared for the Legal News recently!
