How do you help individuals and businesses?
As an estate planning attorney, I assist individuals, families, and businesses with securing the future they desire. I routinely advise clients on preparing proper estate planning documents, navigating taxes associated with an inheritance, establishing guardians and conservators for young children and incapacitated individuals, ensuring assets are passed on to future generations, and handling post-death probate and trust administration matters.
What sets you apart from other lawyers in your practice field?
Clients frequently commend my ability to empathize with their unique situations, explain legal issues in a clear and concise way, and provide beneficial suggestions for their estate planning needs. In addition, growing up in family businesses has given me a unique insight into the practical realities of developing a successful business, passing it on to the next generation, and the many other legal issues business owners face. I strive to anticipate my clients’ needs before they arise so that they are better equipped to perform in a competitive market. As a result, I am quick to respond to my clients’ questions and I am determined to give them timely, accurate answers. Professionalism, integrity, and work ethic are of the utmost importance to me.
How do any of your community interests or activities facilitate how you represent your client?
I take pride in facilitating and growing relationships. In order to do so, I am actively involved in the West Michigan community. My community participation provides me with the knowledge and resources to better address the important issues facing my clients. I have held several leadership roles and board member positions in local nonprofit organizations. I frequently attend estate planning and business-oriented conferences to network and stay informed about current business, tax, and other trends that may affect my clients.
