I am passionate about helping individuals plan for their family's long-term care and assisting entrepreneurs with realizing their visions. I thrive on providing clients with the sound legal counsel they need to withstand government tax overreach. Before attending law school, I worked as a newspaper journalist in both large and small towns throughout the Southeast. There, I witnessed the inequities that often exist between citizens and government. From reporting on those who had been unfairly arrested and charged with exorbitant fines, to those facing re-zoning and condemnation efforts, to parents being shut out of school board meetings it was clear to me that individuals need legal advocates to protect and advise them in navigating complex and powerful government structures. At Georgetown Law, I focused my studies on taxation, an arena where the government has notoriously held an advantage over the individual. Throughout my career, I have focused on estate planning and corporate law, areas where – like tax – effective advocacy can bridge a power dichotomy.
