It is truly an honor and a joy to be an estate planning attorney in the Lake Norman area! In the summer of 2018, I walked away from my job as a partner in a big law firm to pursue my dream of having a small law firm that focuses entirely on estate and business planning. After years of working as a litigator in these areas, I witnessed firsthand how bad planning (or no planning) can tear apart families and destroy family businesses.
My goal is simple — prevent litigation with good planning. Good planning begins with taking the time to get to know each and every client in order to get a comprehensive understanding of not just their assets, but also their family life, their retirement goals, their financial values, their wishes for their children and future generations, and the personal insights and perspectives that they want reflected in their legacy. Each client undergoes the same interview process so that we have all of the information we need to help design and implement the best plan possible. Because of this unique process, our clients stay with us for their lifetimes and our representation extends to their children and grandchildren.
My firm is a family friendly firm. I am a mother of three young children, and I recognize that parents have limited time and resources. Because I believe planning for families with minor children is the most important estate planning, I have made our estate plans accessible and affordable for all families so that cost is not a factor.
