As an Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorney, I provide comprehensive legal counsel and practical advice regarding your estate planning, as well as the documents that are necessary to protect you and your loved ones.  These documents can include Wills, Trusts, Supplemental Needs/Special Needs Trusts, Powers of Attorney (Financial and Health care), Living Wills (end-of-life wishes), Real Estate Deeds (Warranty Deeds, Quit Claim Deeds, Beneficiary Deeds), Beneficiary Designations for life insurance policies and retirement accounts, Pre-Nuptial Agreements, agreements as to real estate or estate planning between partners or spouses, as well as other documents.  I also advise clients as to Medicaid planning, where that is a concern. Documents are customized to your needs and wishes.  

My experiences helping to care for my mother during her 16 years of decline due to Alzheimer's disease, dealing with my father's last illness and death, and handling financial and legal matters for my mother after my father died, provide me with personal, as well as practical, insights and perspectives that I bring to my Estate Planning and Elder Law practice.

A substantial portion of my clientele are lesbian, gay, and transgender individuals and couples (some who are legally married, some who are partners), many of whom have children.  Couples from the LGBT community should read the “Same-Sex Marriages” section of my website for information about the legal changes affecting same-sex married couples living in Missouri since the Supreme Court's marriage decisions.

I also handle Step-Parent Adoptions, Name Changes and Gender-Marker Changes.

Although opening a full probate estate often can be avoided through proper planning, I also handle full probate estate on a case-by-case basis.

See the "Practice Areas" section of this website for a description of each of  my current areas of practice.

My law firm provides individualized friendly service, with attention to detail.  Each client is a person, not a case. Telephone calls usually are returned by my paralegal or by me within one to two business days.  Free notary services are provided for established clients.  

See the "Firm Profile" section of this website for more information about my firm. 

I have been a consistent advocate throughout my career for civil rights, civil liberties, and justice for all. I have more than a quarter-century of experience as an attorney representing lesbian, gay, and transgender persons, and advocating for LGBT rights.
