Biography

I regularly work with individuals, families and retirees, helping them develop sound estate plans that address tax liabilities, long-term care issues and asset protection. I create various financial and legal strategies for clients to pass wealth onto heirs, to provide asset protection, to settle their estate according to their wishes, and to reduce or eliminate their tax burden. I readily collaborate with the client's accountant, investment advisor and insurance professional. In addition, I help high net worth individuals with sophisticated estate planning and wealth transfer techniques, including revocable trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, family limited partnerships (FLPs) and limited liability companies (LLCs). I have extensive experience with last minute planning in a crisis situation where long-term care in a nursing home is needed. I have a proven track record of preparing successful Medicaid (MassHealth) Applications and Social Security Disability Applications (SSDI/SSI.)
