I am an attorney with 25 years’ experience. My specialty is estate planning and elder law. including the complexities of interfamilial and intergenerational ties as well as preparing enduring powers of attorney, wills and trusts.
We work very hard to accumulate our wealth, and we deserve to decide who benefits, and how, from our hard-earned assets. We have earned the right to self-determination and the ability to age with dignity. There are various legal tools that can help us accomplish our goals, which include an Enduring Power of Attorney and Advance Medical Directives.
I am trained and have experience in U.S. and Israeli Tax Law, allowing me to view in totality complex estate matters involving dual citizenship. This includes US gift planning, alternative tax efficient investment vehicles and creation of international trusts, while considering each client's particular and complex needs.
I am a member of the Global Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and I lecture regularly on the importance of Estate Planning and Enduring Power of Attorney. I write a column on the relationship between children and their adult parents on various Hebrew news sites and a blog in the Times of Israel. I strongly believe in the wisdom of our elders and their contribution to the community, and on my Facebook Business Page I have a variety of complementary value added videos of professionals that work with and empower senior citizens.
On a personal note- I am a mother of three, addicted to dark chocolate and to running.
I try and live my life implementing my favorite quote -“The Secret to Living is Giving” (Tony Robbins).
