Stages Elder Law and Estate planning works together with clients and a multi-disciplinary team of professionals to develop comprehensive plans that help our clients and their families live life with fewer worries about care and end of life legal issues.
Everyone should spend more time enjoying life.
Our clients hire us to relieve their worries about legal, financial, and care needs, so that they can spend time with family, friends, or pursuing passions. In pursuit of the same goals, our work environment is flexible, focused on results not hours.
Time is precious and should be respected.
Appointments will start on time, promised deadlines will be met, and all communications will be answered or returned promptly.
Empathy builds trust.
Discussing death and disability is deeply personal and difficult for most people. We respect this and treat everyone the way they expect to be treated. We care personally about everyone we help.
People are unique, problems are dimensional, solutions should be holistic & individual.
Each person has a unique story. The advice we provide doesn’t exist in a vacuum. In helping our clients plan, we consider their individual experience, identify their goals, and provide solutions that address their needs comprehensively, often involving experts outside of the legal field.
Thank you for taking a few minutes of your precious time to get to know me and learn why I do what I do. Since a young age, I have been motivated by helping others. That motivation drew me to my first career in law enforcement.
For 20 years, I worked tirelessly to make my community a better place as a police officer, retiring as the Chief of Police for my parent’s hometown. My career in law enforcement strongly influenced my decision to pursue a second career as an elder law and estate planning attorney. It helped me develop an empathetic ear and the ability to work with individuals in moments of tragedy and crisis. I’ve often felt most comfortable bringing calm where there is chaos. I bring this same ability and interest to my law practice. Having stood with families in the very moment they learned of the death of a loved one, I’ve seen the difference between families who have a plan in place and those that don’t. I’ve sat down with families at kitchen tables as an elderly parent was taken away in an ambulance, discussing the struggles of balancing care needs with freedoms for aging parents.
I would love the opportunity to get to know you and to work with you as your attorney. Whether you are looking for help with Elder Care Law, Estate Planning, or navigating a related crisis, I think I bring a unique perspective and helpful set of skills to the table.
