More About Ed
My parents were older when I was born and I saw them face many issues involved with preparing for their golden years, dealing with elderly challenges, protecting their estate and legacy. This was one of the factors that inspired me to become a lawyer and when I did, I began assisting individuals from all walks of life with probate and estate planning concerns. I have found my individualized attention to my clients very challenging as well as rewarding. I have also enjoyed my involvement with people as the legal counsel for various governmental entities.
What I Can Do For You
Like all the attorneys at Slater & Zurz LLP , I am focused on my clients and protecting their best interests. By focusing on the practice areas of probate and estate planning within my areas of concentration, I have the unique privilege of developing very long term relationships with clients to help them properly prepare and plan for major life events that lie ahead. I feel it’s very important to concentrate on the individual needs of every client, thoroughly educate and inform them and deliver them positive results.
