Estate Planning

  • You have kids and want to protect their interests if something should happen to you.
  • You have a family member who you need to exclude from your estate.
  • You’re older and want to make sure your affairs are in order.

Whatever the reason for starting to plan your end-of-life documents, estate planning is one of the best gifts you can give your loved ones. It’s about getting things organized and put in order so when you pass away, your family can comfort one another instead of fight over your money and belongings.

Most people don’t think about estate planning until they’ve experienced what happens when someone dies without a will. But when they see what a challenge it is for families to move forward and work through their grief without the proper documents in place, they stop putting it off and come in for an appointment.

And while you may not see the return on your investment, you’ll rest easy knowing that your family will.

Business Planning

Your business is your livelihood. It’s what pays the bills and puts food on the table. And even if you’re not running your business full time, you need to protect yourself. Having the correct business documents in place—contracts, tax paperwork, agreements—helps to ensure that your business runs smoothly. It also reduces the risk of liability if something were to go wrong.

In addition to estate planning, I also work with business owners to ensure you have the documents you need to protect your business—now and in the future. It’s not as simple as printing out LLC paperwork from the internet and filing it with the State. Find out more about my business planning services.

Meet Nicole

I’ve always known that I wanted to be an attorney, but it wasn’t until working as a paralegal during law school that I found my niche. I knew that I didn’t like the adversarial side of law. I wanted to truly help people. I’ve seen what happens to families when loved ones do not have their estates planned properly. It brings about anger, distrust and hurt feelings among those left behind. It’s my goal to help you create the legal documents you need to plan for your family’s future, after your death.

As a small business owner, I also appreciate that there’s a lot of jargon and paperwork involved in running a successful business. I help other business owners make sure they have a solid legal foundation so they can focus on running their business, instead of dotting i’s and crossing t’s.

I hold a bachelor of science in criminal justice from Arizona State University and a juris doctorate from Arizona Summit Law School. My success as an attorney stems from my focus on client relations and problem solving. I personally meet with each client and communicate with them directly, and I don’t nickel and dime clients with phone calls and emails.

I value personal, affordable and comprehensive service. I spend as much time as necessary with each client, making sure they clearly understand each document and that their estate documents fully reflect their wishes.
