Planning your Estate doesn't have to be Difficult!

Customized by an Attorney for your Individual Requirements

I have worked closely with dozens of North Alabama families to facilitate their estate planning needs. I usually have a brief phone conversation with clients interested in wills or powers of attorney to learn more about their specific situation. Then I schedule a meeting to speak in person about their unique situation and within a week I often have a draft for review. A final meeting is necessary to execute the wills and powers of attorney. From beginning to end the entire process rarely takes more than a few weeks to complete. It is as easy as a few phone calls or emails and a couple of office visits!

​​​​Attorney at LaW


Experienced with Tax Obligations and Investments

I consult with accountants and other professionals to ensure that all funds are accounted for and tax obligations are paid as required.  I have considerable experience working with families in the estate context to transfer real estate or securities and other investments.

No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.

I work directly with clients in this context and when you hire me, you will talk to me, not a secretary or young lawyer with very little experience.  

I often work directly with families after the loss of a loved one, to probate wills, or administer estates in cases where there is no existing will. I work closely with the personal representative (executor/executrix) to see that the deceased’s wishes are carried out. I assist with ensuring that all family members understand and observe their rights and obligations pursuant to the will or law, and when necessary to dispute or negotiate claims filed against the estate. I have had great success in reducing or eliminating substantial credit card debt in situations where families feared there would be nothing remaining after the creditors were paid.
