Don provides guidance for start-up and small businesses; estate planning, wills, probate and related tax questions for individuals; health care; personal injury actions; civil litigation and insurance industry defense and coverage work.

One of the cornerstones of Don’s practice is helping individuals and families plan for elder years or the end of life through estate planning and probate work. Don is also poised to help non-traditional families who face a myriad of rapidly changing legal challenges through estate planning for them as well.
