I provide legal services primarily in the areas of wills, estates, not-for-profit law and charities, including planned giving. Coming from a generalist background, my practice also involves uncontested family matters, small business and real estate. I also deal with law related to publishing. Building on my own years of volunteering and board service for a number of social justice, religious, mental health and service organizations, I know that paper-work is not always the first concern of charities and not-for-profits who simply want to get on with what they were set up to do. As a researcher, writer and former publisher, I am currently carrying out a project to make things easier for boards to manage their operations and free up volunteers to focus on their good works.
