Knowing that I am helping clients avoid the costs, uncertainty, and unpleasantness that come with a lack of planning, makes me proud of my estate planning offering. I truly believe my services are a good value and benefit to my clients, and I am thankful for the trust and confidence my clients place in me for this very personal task. I do all estate planning on a fixed flat rate basis so there are never any surprises with the fees. My office serves clients from throughout East Contra Costa County, including Brentwood, Discovery Bay, and Antioch. I also am able to serve clients throughout California though technological means. And I routinely make house calls when the circumstances require it.
I have a passion for working with entrepreneurs and businesses. As a youth I worked in several family owned businesses and I came to appreciate the importance of the American small business. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They provide a majority of the nation’s jobs and serve as the engine that makes us the economic leaders of the world. My education in accounting and business administration has benefitted me in my professional career. I have worked for a large multinational corporation and a small startup technology firm. Over the past four years I have counseled nearly fifty local businesses on matter from startup to cessation, and everywhere in between. I aim to work with local area businesses who want to take a proactive approach to their business legal needs. Too often owners neglect to take essential steps until it is too late? I am looking for clients that want professional guidance avoiding costly mistakes
My goal is to provide professional legal services with compassion, integrity, and value. I believe prevention and planning before legal problems arise is the best way to operate. Too often people put off addressing their legal matters until it is too late. At that point there is conflict and unnecessary expense. I’d like to change that paradigm. I believe my clients appreciate access to professional legal counsel at reasonable rates. Whether working on estate planning, business law, or landlord representation, I strive to do much of my work on a flat rate where clients know my fees precisely.
I have been practicing in Brentwood for four years. Over that time, I’ve refined my focus to three core areas of the law: Estate Planning, Business Law, and Landlord law. If you do not have a will or trust, if you own a business, or if you are a landlord, I would love the opportunity to consult with you about your legal needs.
