What I’m Learning

My goal of a client centered law practice of Estate Planning, Elder Law, Probate... philosophy is premised on empathy first and foremost, the ability to empathize with someone who has lived experiences different from mine.

Today is George Floyd’s Birthday. I have been in conference #cliocon this week and today, Attorney Ben Crump is the Keynote Speaker.  Crump, the Attorney for the families of Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Trayvon Martin…  discussed how we in the legal profession, need to discuss how to develop a more equitable justice system. 

My goal of a client centered law practice of Estate Planning, Elder Law, Probate… philosophy is premised on empathy first and foremost, the ability to empathize with someone who has lived experiences different from mine.

I continue to learn how to grow and change.   As a practitioner of Elder Law, I often work with disenfranchised, economically challenged and marginalized seniors and their families.  I hope the tools that Crump spoke of today and strategies I can use as a Lawyer will help me be a better attorney, friend and member of our community. 

I am thankful for the opportunity to listen to Ben Crump, his wisdom, and his ability to speak to the core of humanity, especially on today, what would have been George Floyd’s birthday.  No matter what your political affiliation, today has been eye opening and thought-provoking and I hope I am a bit more understanding of what empathy is.

Scams and Schemes

Protect Yourself from Fraud

Whether it’s guilting you into investing, instilling fear in you, or giving you the impression that they are professionals, con artists know exactly how to persuade you. Don’t rush yourself and don’t allow others to rush you. Take your time when making investment decisions, remain skeptical of unsolicited offers or offers that seem like they are too good to be true, and be sure that your money is always accessible.
