|Location:||Fort Wayne, Indiana|
The Roanoke area has been my lifelong home. There I grew up in the retail hardware trade - and have never quite gotten the "nuts and bolts" out of my blood. Following law school, my wife and I (whom I met in first grade) chose to return to our roots, as a desirable spot to raise a family. And that we did.
Although my early aspirations tended toward the courtroom, the fork in the road led to trust work with northern Indiana's most prominent bank. The position of counsel for the trust department permitted me to develop in-depth knowledge and experience in trust and estate administration, estate and personal planning, as well as related areas of taxation andcharities. When I later opted for private practice, I chose to confine my efforts to these fields; that choice has yielded much satisfaction.
