How I represent clients at Schwabe

I strive to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives by working with families, family businesses, and closely held businesses to develop and implement highly customized estate plans and succession strategies. My area of practice also encompasses business clients with formation needs, development of governance structures, reorganizations and dissolutions, and mergers and acquisitions; extending to charitable and nonprofit organizations. I’m experienced in counseling tax-exempt and philanthropic organizations with formation and operations matters.

I have extensive experience in family business, estate, and tax planning issues. My comprehensive approach is born from 22 years of practice, keeping the needs of my clients at the center of each decision.
