Estate planning, elder law, and helping families manage probate are my passions, not just my career.
I became an Estate Planning, Edler Law and Probate attorney after my family's experience following the death of my uncle, Giovanni. Uncle Giovanni died of Alzheimer's disease. He did not make a will or discuss with my father how to handle important healthcare decisions ahead of time. I saw Dad make decisions for his brother and anguish over whether they were the right ones.
I came to realize that estate planning, regardless of your stage in life, can help prevent traumatic situations. Estate planning is a gift to your loved ones; you are taking the hard decision out of their hands and having your personal wishes and choices followed.
My firm assists individuals and families with their estate planning needs, from young professionals and families to retirees. I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) as well as the local Charlotte Chapter, Charlotte Estate Planning Council, and ElderCounsel, an educational organization dedicated to the professional development of elder law attorneys.
My firm also helps families with probate matters. Our services help you navigate the cumbersome task of settling the estate of a deceased loved one.
My goal is to lessen the time you spend in probate court and take some of the burden from you, so you and your family can properly mourn your loved one.
I value and respect the opportunity given to me to help plan for your future.

The North Carolina Law Directory is a free public service of the North Carolina Consumers Council to help you find a lawyer in North Carolina.
Finding the right lawyer to represent you is a very important decision! Whether you are drafting a will, fighting a wage garnishment, or simply trying to beat a traffic ticket, you should select the best possible lawyer.
Since you want to find the best possible lawyer, all participants in this lawyer directory are screened and verified against the North Carolina State Bar to have no public disciplinary actions on their records and to have an active North Carolina law license.
The content on this legal directory and linked content is not offered as, is not intended to be, and does constitute legal advice. It should not be relied upon as a source of legal advice. No part of this website, nor the websites of the attorneys, creates an attorney-client relationship. Your use of this website to contact an attorney does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and an attorney.
An attorney may, as a matter of policy, first investigate for possible conflicts of interest and obtain a signed agreement before accepting new clients.
All attorneys on the North Carolina Law Directory are licensed to practice law in North Carolina. The ability of an attorney to engage in activities on behalf of clients outside North Carolina is subject to state laws, professional codes and court rules.
Before entering into any agreement with an attorney, you should evaluate the attorney's skills and qualifications and understand all the fees involved. While no lawyer can guarantee success in any legal proceeding, you should ask about the lawyer's past history of success. Past successes should not be construed as a guarantee that the same or similar results can be obtained for another client. The outcome of a particular legal matter depends on a variety of different factors, including specific factual and legal circumstances.
- Treat the attorney and the attorney's staff with courtesy and consideration
- Pay the attorney's fee in accordance with any fee agreements you have signed to the extent required by law. If you do not pay the fee, the attorney is not obligated to represent you.
- Notify the attorney immediately if any contact information has changed. If your address or phone number have changed, the attorney can't reach you.
- Notify the attorney immediately of any developments that can affect the outcome of your case. This includes any communications you may receive.
- Be completely honest. If you aren't completely honest with the attorney, the attorney cannot do the best job.
- Request an explanation from the attorney if you are not satisfied with any development.
- Keep your requests reasonable. Twelve phone calls per day can keep the attorney from effectively representing you. Most attorneys are good about getting information to you very quickly. If you don't understand a development, ask for clarification. But don't expect an hourly progress report.
- Be patient.
