My areas of practice include: estate planning; elder law with emphasis on long-term care planning, asset protection, and government benefits; estate administration (probate law); trust administration; litigation & administrative appeals; and mortuary law.
Elder Law consists of a variety of matters, such as:
•Wills and trusts
•Abuse and neglect
•Incapacity Planning: durable powers of attorney and health care directives
•Long-term care planning
•Guardianship and conservatorship
•Medicare, Medical Assistance, Social Security, Veterans Benefits, and other public benefits
•Health care issues
•Supplemental and Special Needs Trusts
•Probate and trust administration
As a licensed mortician I am knowledgeable about mortuary and funeral service law, and am available for consultation.
I am a volunteer for the Wills for Heroes program through the Minnesota State Bar Association, the MN Assistance Council for Veterans (MAC-V) legal clinics, and participate in the Minnesota Elder Justice Project.
I do regular presentations on long-term care planning, estate planning, and preplanning for death.
As a hobby business I make and sell jewelry. I enjoy silversmithing as well as collecting vintage beads and semi-precious gemstones.
