Estate and Personal Planning, Estate and Trust Administration, Charities, Taxation, Business Organizations, Commercial Transactions, Real Estate


I am a native of Northeast Indiana having grown up in Roanoke. I chose to go into law because I enjoy helping others achieve their present and future goals in an efficient manner.

I primarily practice estate and personal planning, estate and trust administration, charities, taxation, business organizations, commercial transactions, and real estate. In 2013 I was certified as a trust and estate law specialist by the Trust and Estate Specialy Certification Board of the Probate, Trust and Real Property Section, Indiana State Bar Association.

My wife, Carrie, and I have two daughters - Allison and Katie.
