I don’t come from a family of lawyers, but lawyers helped my family at a critical time. So I went to law school, hoping to help other families in their own crises.
I didn’t always know how, exactly, I would do that. But when I found elder law, I knew it was a good fit. Now I use my skills with words and rules to help families navigate bureaucracy and care for their loved ones.
In my spare time I like to read, write, and spend time with my wife and three children. I love to read books about language, writing, and editing; you’ll find reference books on grammar, usage, punctuation, and style within easy reach of my desk. My favorite book, though, is Crime and Punishment. Someday I dream of publishing my own books as a lawyer and helping other lawyers publish theirs.
I grew up in Madison and Janesville. I’m a proud Wisconsinite. I moved with my family and opened my law practice in River Falls in May of 2018, then added an office in New Richmond in May of 2021. We are thrilled to live in this beautiful, vibrant area and are excited for the future.
I became a lawyer to help families like mine. I came to elder law because it’s all about the biggest challenges families face: providing and caring for loved ones.
In today’s world, that means navigating the bureaucracies of law, money, and health care. I’ve seen too many people—including my own family—in anxiety and tears because they couldn’t find their way through those bureaucracies. It’s too complicated.
As an elder law attorney, I have the knowledge and training to cut through bureaucracy. So I take on the complicated worlds of elder law and long-term care so my clients don’t have to.
