A Note From Diane

Peace of mind is a result of careful planning. To ensure that your family remains secure, it’s important to plan for the future. Whether appointing a guardian for your child, drawing up a will, or avoiding confusion about medical decisions, I can help turn your questions into legal solutions.

Knowledge and advanced, pro-active preparation go a long way. I provide my clients with information and services that result in maximum peace of mind with minimal court time. I specialize in full-service, personalized estate planning and take time to find out exactly what you want to accomplish. We thoroughly explore all available options before completion of the necessary paperwork. I work efficiently to prepare your legal documents and ensure they reflect your personal wishes. It’s your money and I work to keep it that way! ~ Diane M. Brown
