Customized Estate Plans Based On Your Specific Needs and Goals

As an estate planning lawyer with over 20 years of experience, I understand the need for highly personalized estate plans for each client based on his or her specific financial goals. I have used my experience to help countless southwestern Minnesota individuals and families plan for their current and future financial needs, through careful analysis and application of estate laws.

As my client, I will help you maximize the amount of wealth that you can transfer to your heirs at the time of your death by minimizing your tax consequences. I take a collaborative approach to estate planning and involve your personal accountant and/or financial planners, as appropriate, in order to best serve your needs.

  • Wills
