Biography

Annette can help anyone, whether they are single, married, or families with children.  Annette adopted her three grandchildren in 2015, after they were placed with her by social services in 2012.  Annette has the unique understanding that comes from having raised her own children and are raising another set of children.  She also understands blended families, since before she raised her own two children, she had four bonus boys that she helped raise.

Annette has a small firm, but she does mighty things.  Annette doesn’t just create documents.  She creates plans that keep her clients’ surviving relatives out of court, allowing them to grieve.  Annette helps her clients pass on, not just their assets to their children and loved ones, but their beliefs and core values, also.  She makes sure that her clients minor children are not left without a loved one or close family friend to come and take care of them physically and emotionally, should both parents wind up in the hospital, unconscious, or worse.  Annette does not want her clients worrying about going out for an evening and leaving their children with the  babysitter should they be involved in an accident.  Life is like that, we think we are traveling down one path, and then BOOM! Life takes a left turn on us, and something we never expected hits us in the face.  We can never be sure what may happen in life and in family dynamics, as Annette knows from personal experience.  

What Annette has created is a practice where she can give her clients the reassurance of knowing that they are keeping their family out of court and conflict, as Annette wishes for her very own family.  Annette can give herself and her clients something she never could before ~ peace of mind.
