One thing I love about our firm is that we are willing to, and frequently enjoy, taking on more challenging cases. By “more difficult” I mean liability isn’t quite as clear as we would like for it to be.  Don’t get me wrong: There is a big difference between a meritless claim and a claim […]

Recently, a growing number of my estate planning clients have told me they are worried about challenges to their estate planning documents. Is there reason to expect a challenge? Admittedly, I’d expect this type of concern from a 75-year-old male client leaving the majority of his estate to his 30-year-old girlfriend that he met at […]

At the risk of getting sidetracked by all the ways in which social media (SM) exasperates me but at the same time, draws me in, I’m going there anyway. Simply put, my ambivalence really reflects my love-hate relationship with SM. At times, I find myself annoyed by — and envious of — those who seemingly […]

There was an important announcement in the Britney Spears saga this month. As an elder law attorney with guardianship as one of my primary practice areas, the story of her ongoing conservatorship/guardianship has been fascinating.  Ever since my unofficial declaration of allegiance to the #FreeBritney movement, I’ve had my eye on the ongoings of her […]
