Solo Practitioner
San Luis Obispo, California

I grew up in San Luis Obispo before leaving to attend college and pursue my career as an attorney. After a decade of practicing litigation and estate planning, I was ready to return to the place I love, start a practice I believe in and make a difference in the local legal community by offering a competent and caring approach to the practice of law.

Central Coast Estate Planning & Fiduciary Services is the culmination of my personal and professional dreams. What makes my firm different is that I have not forgotten the human element in the practice of law. I focus on each family or individual and their unique needs and keep my firm small and specialized so that you are always my top priority.

Whether you need an estate plan written or updated, require representation in probate, trust or tax litigation or are interested in hiring a trustworthy and knowledgeable personal fiduciary, I can offer the guidance, experienced legal representation and personal touch that is so often lacking from the practice of law today. It's a tough world out there and trust, probate and tax law can be a minefield, but I am here to help you and your loved ones.
