Frequently Asked Questions

I want to help you educate yourself!

An informed client is able to make a better decision on whether to hire counsel in the first place. Once an attorney has been retained, we can truly assist in having their legal matter brought to a satisfactory conclusion. We believe in "Helping You Help Yourself." The goal of the representation is to balance the needs of the client with the skills of the professional. This way, both sides are working together to achieve the best result for the client.

Are you willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I review documents and tell the truth. I leave the decision up to the client as to whether they want to hire the firm to amend, correct, or redo existing documents. I will not write a document such as a pleading for court and then send the petitioner/litigant off to work on the case alone. I simply refuse and I see this kind partial representation as unprofessional. However, if a document brought in for my review will suffice, I will advise as such.

Are you willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I do frequently coach clients via telephone for small cases which can be handled in the Magistrate Court.

Why did you decide to become a lawyer?

I wanted a career where I could blend my medical and legal careers. I joined the American Association for Nurse Attorneys while still practicing as a nurse.

What work experience and education helps you be a better lawyer?

When I was 40, I combined all of my medical, insurance, and legal education and skills to assist my clients.

Why did you decide to practice both civil litigation and elder law?

I chose these areas because litigation and health law focus heavily on the practice of medicine. I was inspired to practice Elder Law because of my community's need.

What do you like best about your career?

No two days are ever the same and there is always something dynamic happening. The clients are in need and most of the time, I can make a difference.

What are your strengths and styles?

I am outgoing, knowledgeable, light-hearted, tough during litigation I am a flexible negotiator. I am patient, solution and resolution-driven, but I am not a hired gun. If I do not believe in a case, no amount of money will convince me to take it on. I am education-oriented and I want my clients to be to be fully-informed.
