Q & A
Outside of your billable work, what accomplishments are you most proud of?
Through FloridaProBonoMatters.org, a website developed by The Florida Bar Foundation, I sought out and managed a first of its kind pro bono project through Jacksonville Area Legal Aid that utilized technology to offer virtual legal services to underserved populations across Florida. Through the platform, I was able to provide estate planning for clients who may not have had access to this type of aid otherwise. Technology is transforming legal service delivery models and I see this as the way of the future, particularly as it relates to pro bono initiatives.
What is keeping your clients up at night?
The new tax law has significantly increased the amount that an individual can gift, both during life and at death. At present, clients see this as an opportunity, however since laws frequently change there is the possibility that things could swing in another direction in the future. By staying on top of these shifts and acting accordingly, I help to alleviate some of the uncertainty involved in trust and estate planning.
