“The meaning of life is to find your gift.
The purpose of life is to give it away.”
— Pablo Picasso
My life’s purpose is to be of service to others
My career has spanned years working in civil litigation, bankruptcy, criminal law, family law and everything in between.
Becoming a parent changed everything. I saw the importance of Wills, Guardianship, and Estate Planning to protect my family and others. I realized my calling is to bring that knowledge to others.
