How I represent clients at Schwabe

As a member of Schwabe’s Tax and Estate Planning Group, I enjoy helping clients navigate estate and business succession plans so they can efficiently reach their goals. I also assist them with the preparation of state and federal estate tax returns, and navigation through both probate and trust administration following the death of a loved one.

Prior to joining Schwabe, I was part of the Estate Planning, Trust Administration, and Probate Practice Group at a boutique law firm in Salem. In my spare time, I am proud to be the board president for CASA of Marion County, a local nonprofit that’s part of a nationwide network that advocates for the best interests of children in foster care.
