I started my estate planning practice with the passion to help families with different backgrounds get protected. I am on a mission to educate my community on the importance of estate planning and how to customize a plan that can help families when really in need.

As a first-generation immigrant and a mom with a 5-year-old boy, I totally understand the uniqueness of immigrant families. We start a new life here and build up our families and wealth here, but when we want to have a plan in place to protect our loved ones and hard-eared money, there are not too many choices for us because our close families are far away from us. However, having a plan in place is especially crucial in our situations because we don’t want to leave our family at risk and have our foreign families come here with no clues about how to gather our wealth and protect our minor kids.

As your personal family lawyer, I value my relationship with my clients. I provide a long-term relationship with my clients so that if something happens, you don’t just have a set of documents and no ideas about how to get started. You will be supported with a personal family lawyer. This is the way I enjoy serving my clients as a personal family lawyer because I can listen to my client’s needs and their goals to have a plan. I know their families and help them organize their finance and get protected.
