I'm here to help you understand your options.

1A little about me.

I focus on individual and family estate planning, estate administration, trusts, general business, corporate, and partnership law, real estate, and municipal corporations law.

A career in law was a natural decision for me, not only because I enjoy problem-solving and working with people, but because I come from generations of lawyers.

I decided to join the team at Ball Eggleston because of their community-oriented, people-focused approach. Today, I am proud to be a member of a team of highly talented lawyers that are able to make every client’s problem a top priority.

As an active member of the community, I have served in leadership roles on many boards of charitable entities, including Food Finders Food Bank, Inc., the Greater Lafayette Museum of Art, the United Way of Greater Lafayette, and the Lafayette Symphony Foundation, Inc.

I am a member of the Indiana State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, and a Master Fellow of the Indiana Bar Foundation. I have also served as the president, vice president, and treasurer of the Tippecanoe County Bar Association, and was the chairman of the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education.
