I grew up in northern New Jersey and attended and received my Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York at Albany. I then attended the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City, where I earned my J.D. degree, and became a member of the State Bar of California in 1993.
While in law school, I clerked for the law firm of Sankel & Skurman in New York City whose practice areas included estate planning, family law, probate and litigation. I also served as the Research Editor for the International Law Journal. After law school my wife and I relocated to California. My first position as an associate was with the firm of Rainboldt & McIntrye in Cypress, California, where I gained experience by providing services to clients in the areas of estate planning, trusts and probate.
In 1995 I established my own practice, and have been providing services in the areas of estate planning, probate, conservatorships, estate and trust litigation, and general business formation and transactions. I remain very active in continuing legal education to stay current in the latest developments in my areas of practice. I am a member of the State Bar of California’s Trusts & Estates and Business Law sections.
I am committed to my clients, dedicated to my profession and devoted to the community I serve. My goal is to provide the best personalized services to my clients. I enjoy my work and working with people to (1) create the best planning for their futures and (2) to resolve any difficulties they may have.
