Testimonial:  “After 36 years of marriage, I was faced with divorce and needed to work out a financial settlement and plan for my future. I felt overwhelmed. Patricia compiled for me a comprehensive plan for both the division of assets and the handling of those assets for the future. She is an able mediator and negotiator, and is compassionate, as well as extremely capable. After working with Patricia, I felt confident that I had a lifetime plan that would work well for me. I don’t know what I would have done without her help.”
