Since 1989, my practice has concentrated in the area of elder law. I assist families with incapacity and estate planning; retirement planning; Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, health insurance, pharmaceutical insurance and long-term care insurance; Veteran's Benefits; housing options; and nursing home malpractice.
Prior to 1989, I practiced in the areas of taxation, estate planning and employee benefits with the law firms of Troutman Sanders, and Hansell and Post.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, with a concentration in accounting, from Bucknell University in 1979. I received a Doctor of Law degree from Emory University in 1982, and a Master of Laws in Taxation degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in 1985.
