I can honestly say that of all the wonderful places I’ve lived, Portland, Maine is exactly where I want to be. The mix of physical beauty, friendly people, culture and cuisine is unbelievably appealing to me. When I’m not enjoying everything that Portland offers, I am likely at home reading or cooking, or planning my next escape Downeast or to Quebec City.
I graduated with honors from the University of Maine School of Law, where I was selected as class speaker. Previously, I earned a BA in History from Fordham University in the Bronx.
I know you have a great many solid options when it comes to selecting a lawyer here in southern Maine. My hope is that you will see the value of having me in your corner. I’m a fighter by nature: tough, determined, intelligent, and driven to success. But I’m also a huge believer in seeking agreement whenever possible in order to save my clients stress and money.
The bottom line is results for you.
It would be my honor to represent you.
Having lived in Maine for 30 years, I’m very happy to finally be working and living in Portland. From Munjoy Hill, I can walk to work and find beautiful vistas, community, and great coffee on the way. I look forward to expanding my estate planning and probate practice in this growing city.
I graduated with honors from the University of Maine School of Law in 1994. Previously, I earned a BA in history from the University of Virginia. I have concentrated my practice in the areas of estate planning and probate administration, working previously in Freeport at Powers & French, P.A. and in Yarmouth at the Law Offices of Mark Standen.
My goal is to make estate planning easy and gratifying for my clients. Many people put off estate planning, but I can tell you that it feels great to get it done. I enjoy building relationships with my clients, demystifying the process, and helping them plan for their futures.
I also really enjoy assisting clients with the probate process. Whether clients need initial guidance or someone to handle all aspects of an estate, guardianship, or conservatorship, they often are overwhelmed and full of emotion and questions. I can help.
I also just completed mediation training and look forward to offering probate clients the opportunity to solve their disputes outside of the courtroom.
