Handling a Wide Range of Probate & Estate Litigation Matters

Probate is the legal process of inventorying and administering a decedent's estate after they pass away, as well as handling their remaining debts and tax matters. This process is required by law, and probate administration is best handled with the assistance of a capable lawyer. I can provide comprehensive counsel if you have been named as the executor of an estate and are facing estate administration.

Along with my extensive experience as an attorney, I also have many years of former experience in the construction industry.

I continued on as a general contractor until attending law school.

Today, I use both my construction and legal experience to benefit my legal clients by providing counsel for new home construction projects. Before you sign a contract with a contractor to build your new home, speak with me and find out how I can help you avoid pitfalls and mistakes that can affect your construction project.
