Claire always tells people she didn’t go to law school to be a lawyer – she went to law school to be an estate planning lawyer. Working at a boutique estate planning law firm in college persuaded her to go to law school. Claire wouldn’t want to practice law with out the interpersonal component that goes hand in hand with estate planning. She enjoys working with families and helping them plan for the future.

As a member of the firm’s Trusts, Estates & Succession Planning Service Group, she focuses on all matters relating to estate planning, succession planning, and trust administration. Specifically, Claire’s practice includes trusts, wills, marital property agreements, and powers of attorney. In addition, Claire assists on probate matters and works with the tax team on reviewing income tax returns and filing estate tax returns.
