Firm Description

Who We Serve

We work with individuals and families across all generations.   In fact, many people who use us will have never had an attorney before.  If you think you need an attorney or are just not sure, feel free to contact me to find out I might be able to help you.

I don’t work with everyone. My practice is focused on Indiana elder law, Medicaid planning,  estate planning, Indiana probate, and mediation services.

See if you are the type of client we work with.

Are some of these statements true for you?

  •  I have never gotten around to doing any estate planning. How do I get started? How much does it cost?
  • Do I really need an estate plan? We had our wills drafted years ago. Is it still valid? Do we need to review our estate plans?
  • My husband or loved one just died.  What do I need to do next? How do I settle his affairs? How do I probate a will? How do we terminate his living trust?
  • We just had a baby. How do we make sure our child is protected if we die? Do we need an estate plan at our age? Is it expensive?
  • I need help paying for my husband’s nursing home expenses.  Can he qualify for Medicaid? Do we have to lose everything to own to get it? Can our assets be protected?
  • We just bought a living trust at a presentation and have second thoughts. Do we need it? Is everything the presenter said true? What assets do we put in it? Was the living trust done correctly? Can we get our money back?
  • My family is fighting over my mother’s money or things.  Can mediation help us find a solution to our conflict?
