I was born in Chardon, Ohio and grew up there, but my parents moved to Nashville, TN 6 years ago.
What is the most important thing you do for our clients?
I try to be a good “middle man” when a client will call in with a question and an attorney is not available to answer it.
Clients really like it when…
...I communicate with them on every step of the way, especially probate matters because it can be confusing and frustrating.
