Andrea’s practice focuses on estate planning, elder law, and administration of trusts and estates. She helps her clients to plan and structure their assets and create the necessary tools so that they and their families are protected and prepared for life changes. Andrea understands the uncertainty and overwhelming fear families confront with both expected and unexpected events, and guides her clients step by step through complex elder law issues.
Andrea helps families protect assets, have tools in place to care for aging or disabled loved ones, and establish clear instruction for their wishes to be carried out. She creates trusts, wills, powers of attorney, and similar tools to empower her clients and their families to take decisive action when they need it most. Whether it be complex Medicaid planning, forming an LLC or a trust, or drafting a simple will, Andrea crafts estate plans tailored to her client’s needs and goals.
When the time comes to carry out a loved one’s wishes, Andrea guides her clients through the trust and estate administration process. She helps determine when a probate is needed, and counsels families through each stage. At times, family dynamics can be complicated by the loss of a loved one. Andrea draws on her years of litigation practice to strategically advise fiduciaries and beneficiaries through trust and estate administrations to avoid litigation where possible, and be prepared when disputes are inevitable.
