Legal solutions for
small business and entrepeneurs

Powered by technology and tax-centered thinking.

Small Business

I was born into a family of entrepreneurs, and I've been involved in small business since I was a child. That's why I started my own firm dedicated to helping others succeed with their own small businesses.

Tax

I worked in the tax group at an international law firm before starting my own. Whether it's a corporate transaction, estate planning, or real estate, I view everything through a tax lens first - which can save you time and money.

Technology

In addition to the legal work, I continue to do some IT consulting work. We use modern cloud-based software, giving clients access to their documents and case information and allowing for us to close deals remotely (when it complies with legislation)

We have successfully assisted many family businesses in transferring ownership to the next generation of the family through tax reorganizations.
