I began the dream of law school when I was in the 4th grade. My mother had recently gone back to school with 4 small children to become a legal secretary and I would often help her study. Then I went with her to a college class and I was hooked. AlI I would talk about was becoming a lawyer. Fast forward 4 years of college and more years at Brooklyn Law School I passed the New York Bar Exam and got a job at a litigation firm in NYC. I thought I had achieved the dream. Only to become disappointed and burnt out after several years of long hours, lack of quality of life and the old boys network glass ceiling. So I moved to MD and took a break from it all. During this break I began to realize that I had worked hard to earn my law degree and quite frankly there were some things that I really liked about practicing law. I just needed to find a balance and restore my passion. So, I journaled and self-reflected.
I remembered growing up around my grandmother and her various ladies groups and when I graduated law school they all wanted to claim me as "their lawyer." It was sweet & encouraging. These ladies made me feel loved and empowered to do anything. But what they wanted most was Wills and sorting out their assets as they aged. If they could trust anyone, they knew they could trust Maggie's grand-daughter. So that's how the passion rekindled for me. Shortly, I found myself practicing probate & Estate Planning along with a couple of other areas of law. But estate planning, drafting Wills and Powers of Attorney felt like home for me. My practice has now grown to not only working with seniors but helping professional women and families with young children plan their Wills and estates. The feeling of helping people in what can be one of the most emotional times in their life never gets old. I enjoy helping people sort things through and make a plan for the assets they have worked so hard to acquire.
