My work as an estate planner allows me to meet people and really get to know them. I am privileged to be able to listen to inspiring life stories and have others share with me their hopes and dreams. Trite as it may sound, I look forward to going to work each day.
It hasn't always been this way. I graduated from Santa Clara University in 1986 with an MBA and a law degree. For many years, I focused primarily on business litigation. Although I enjoyed helping my clients solve problems, I couldn't help thinking that many of the difficulties could have been avoided with better planning. That's why I made the decision to invest my time and energy on the estate planning part of my practice. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I am helping my clients to anticipate and prepare for the inevitable changes and challenges life brings.
I am a lucky man. I have a dream job and a loving and supportive family.
