Message from Jennifer

As a mother of two children, I know how important it is to plan for their future, now and when I am no longer here to protect them. Throughout my career as an attorney, I have developed a passion for helping clients plan for the future. My primary goals are to minimize tax consequences, secure a client’s legacy, and avoid the cost and delay of probate. Underneath all of these goals lies a commitment and determination to assist clients in any way I can. I always keep in mind my main goal: to help the client.
