Kimberly understands that talking with a stranger about your finances, aging, and the future can be intimidating, but she knows that the benefits of those tough discussions are well worth the initial discomfort. Her welcoming demeanor and professional approach set clients at ease right away. Clients often tell us that while they may have entered the office wary and worried, they leave it feeling peaceful, at ease, and confident in Kimberly’s ability to help them meet their goals and maximize their assets.

“In our office, we are passionate about helping people to protect their assets from taxes, lawsuits, relatives, nursing home costs — anything that threatens their savings and property. We also help people to arrange their affairs so that they will avoid emotional pain and family fights in leaving their wealth to their heirs, and pay the least possible amount in taxes and fees.”

“Just as important as our legal competence is our client service. We know that an attorney’s office can be a bit frightening and we go out of our way to create a warm, family atmosphere. We strive always to exemplify the Golden Rule and to treat our clients as we would like to be treated ourselves. We genuinely care about our clients, and our attitude reflects that.”
