“A thorough understanding of the client’s needs will ensure that their desired results are achieved.”

The difference between a job and a career is passion. I came to this law firm to pursue two areas of the law I was passionate about: elder law and adoption law.

From the beginning of my legal career, I have been fortunate to have been exposed to different areas of the law. That exposure has included representation of public sector clients and assisting those clients in litigation matters, various land use matters, contract matters, employer/employee matters, adoptions, and guardianship.

Working on guardianship matters truly piqued my interest in elder law. Nothing satisfied me more or felt more rewarding then helping someone disabled or elderly who needed help with their medical and financial decisions. To know you made a difference in someone’s life and helped that individual is a great feeling. It was the realization that I had a passion for elder law that brought me to CLDDS, and the same passion has driven me to become a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA).

I have been given the opportunity to do something I love. I believe my passion for elder law is evident in dealing with my clients. I want to help them with whatever their needs may be, from drafting a simple will or a power of attorney to assisting them with more complex matters such as Medicare/Medicaid planning.

Listening is key to understanding a client’s needs. A thorough understanding of the client’s needs will ensure that their desired results are achieved. The thought of estate planning or Medicare/Medicaid planning is often intimidating to many individuals. I will help to eliminate that intimidation by making the process, whether it is a guardianship; estate planning or Medicare application, as easy and painless as possible for my clients. This law firm always strives to do the best for their clients and I believe it is evident in the work produced and the results we have achieved.

I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys as well as a member of AARP Legal Services. I offer availability for home or hospital visits at no additional charge and serve the entire Ocean County and Monmouth County area.
