A Bit About Me

I am a native Floridian but was raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. As a once avid hiker and backpacker, I decided to attend college at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina to be close to the mountains and spend as much time outside as possible. While in college, I had the opportunity to spend several years working and studying in places such as Israel, Costa Rica, Scotland and Peru. Ultimately, this love of traveling and my passion for service led me to the United States Peace Corps where I spent nearly three years in the Central American country of Honduras working to help improve the living conditions of a small community where I lived. I quickly realized that I wanted to help others on a large scale and saw the legal profession as a way to do that. At this point, I was fluent in Spanish and hooked on Latin food and the tropical climate so attending the University of Miami (Florida not Ohio) seemed like the obvious choice for law school. In 2017, I founded The Probate Law Firm and as they say, the rest is history!

Why I Love What I Do!

When I decided to create a law firm dedicated exclusively to probate and estate planning services, I had three goals in mind: 1) get results 2) provide excellent customer service and 3) improve the lives of our clients. Probate and estate planning are difficult topics to discuss and are often hard for people to think about. I wanted to create an environment where our clients would view us not just as their legal advocate but as their trusted resource in just about anything. I believe in service and I believe that it is our duty to go the extra-mile for people. So, when our clients come to us, I want them to know that we have their back.

My passion is for helping others improve upon their current situation. Often that means they need an attorney to go to court for them or draft an estate plan for them so they can have peace of mind that their family will be protected after they pass away. However, sometimes it means that they just need someone to listen to them and hear their story. Ultimately, all of us need help from time to time and at The Probate Law Firm, our mission is to help you get from where you are now to a place where you want to be. We are on your team!
