Profile

For nearly 30 years, I've been solving problems with others: as an attorney, confidant, mentor, friend, father and spouse.


This is what I know for sure: life's a journey. The milestones and challenges along the way are transition points. These transition points pull us from one chapter to the next. For life's higher stake transitions, we need a relationship with someone who can make clear the landscape we're in. Someone who empowers us to make the best choices in this transition to move forward with confidence and peace of mind. I founded The Heartland Law Firm on this idea. The Heartland team is driven by our mission is to Enrich Lives in Meaningful Ways.


Personally and professionally, I have been immersed in the "Elder Transition." I can see that the way society supports elders in a long term health care transition is fragmented and often disregards consideration of the vulnerable elder's personal dignity.


The "Elder Advocate" movement calls for a new standard of elder law to be adopted by the legal industry: that "Elder Law without social work is an incomplete solution."

Special Needs Estate Planning

If you have a loved one with special needs, what happens when you can no longer care for them? If you do have an estate, a trust, or inheritance, you can rest assured: you do have options for special needs estate planning. The question is, what option should you put in place in the event that you are unable to provide for your loved one? An estate planning attorney can help you sort through those decisions. The point of special needs estate planning is to set up lifetime money management for the benefit of a person with special needs. This also protects that person’s eligibility for public benefits if that ever does become an option. More importantly, you ensure access to a pool of fun... […]
