I have over 20 years’ experience in the practice of law in both the law firm setting and as corporate counsel. I opened my own law firm in the winter of 2016. Being on my own has meant that I can now practice law in a way that truly suits me. Clients are not just another name on a file for me. They have always been real people, with their own stories, their own dreams and challenges. I have been privileged to get know some amazing people over the years as I have set up businesses and charities for them, drafted contracts, drafted their wills, provided for succession planning and helped them buy or sell their business, and solved a myriad of other problems and challenges for them. As a pastor’s wife, I have seen first hand the challenges and struggles families face in negotiating the increasingly complex world of Medicaid and Medicare. When I went out on my own, I added Elder Law to my area of practice to be able to help such families and individuals. On the personal side, I am married and have four grown children. I enjoy gardening and kayaking on Long Island Sound. My favorite “get away” activity is mountain climbing and backpacking. For me, there is nothing more refreshing than hitting the trail head with a pack on my back and the whole day of climbing before me! I bring the same strength and energy to my legal work.
