Founding Attorney

A note from Stacey…

“When I began practicing law over two decades ago, it was with the ardent desire to serve my clients with integrity, skill, and candor. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of walking many individuals through challenging circumstances with dignity and peace. At its best, the law protects the most vulnerable among us, which is my passion and life’s work.

I do not take it lightly that my clients trust me with their most personal and important legal issues. Through my work with community organizations and individuals, I’ve been able to realize my dream of providing hope and dignity to our elders and their families. Elder law and the issues surrounding it can be complex, so my goal is always to simplify it and guide families through the process as smoothly as possible. I believe that a combination of compassionate listening and fierce advocacy for my clients is the best I have to offer to my community. Thank you for trusting me to care for you in this way.”
