“The role of an estate planning lawyer entails developing customized, creative solutions to real-life issues. I love getting to know clients, learning about what is important to them and their families, and assisting them with their planning needs, whether it be a simple will and health care proxy or a complex multi-generational estate plan. I feel privileged to be a part of the Hemenway & Barnes private client group, where the commitment to understanding and serving clients is at the heart of every action.”
