Anything else we should know?
I am an Arizona native and a life-long Pinal County Resident. I lived in Stanfield the first 6 years of my life, then we moved to Casa Grande for a few years, and I spent the rest of my childhood from 4th grade until I graduated from Santa Cruz High School in Eloy, Arizona. I received my undergrad from Lincoln College in Lincoln, Illinois, and my law degree and graduated Cum Laude from Western Michigan University Thomas Cooley Law School.
My passion is Estate Planning. I believe everyone should have a plan whether it is a list of personal items you want to go to certain family members to a formal Trust that includes several properties and trust income to be distributed according to your specifications.
I love to talk to and meet new people…but what attorney doesn’t. I am also very approachable, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and if I cannot or do not have an answer, I’m sure I can find someone who does.
