In 2009, I decided to pursue creating my own practice, wanting to help families discover the benefits of planning ahead without the confusion and stress. I have a passion for educating families on the best options available and leading them toward security with empathy. I also enjoy customizing your documents to meet your planning goals.
As a wife and mother of two daughters, I understand that thinking about planning for the end of your life is tough. And often, we don’t spend enough time—or any time—thinking about it. Unfortunately, circumstances occur that we must always prepare for. I’m here to take care of the preparation for you.
A Trusted Advisor and Partner for Your Family
I didn’t have much interest in law until I learned that not all lawyers spend all day in the courtroom. My interest in law is quite the opposite, in fact. To me, being a lawyer opened the door to being a trusted advisor to my clients, to keep them away from conflict.
I like to think of estate planning as preventative law. I want to help minimize the hassle after your death, to plan ahead and to help take care of your loved ones. The best way for me to help you is to provide quality, friendly, approachable service with reasonable fees. And I believe that working with an attorney brings great benefits, such as practical advice, deep knowledge and the perspective of a professional, as well as a trusted advisor you can go to for answers to all your questions. All of this is why I founded Hable Law.
Passionate About Building Relationships and Clearing the Confusion
I developed a strong background in customer service even before going to law school. After graduating cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law, I founded Hable Law on the premise that great service is paramount.
Moreover, I truly care about building relationships with my clients and their families. I love the details that matter to you and I strive to pay attention to those above all else. A long-term relationship with you and your family is my goal, and I’m always here to clear any confusion of the law. You deserve to know how things actually work, instead of hearing legal jargon that’s tough to understand.
Serving Your Family With Customized Estate Planning
No family is the same as the next. That’s why estate planning, including wills and trusts, must be unique to you. I custom tailor your plan to you and your unique needs and requirements. I don’t leave you stuck with a standard form that just doesn’t fit. I take my time to dive deep into the details to make sure what you need is truly reflected in your plan.
Customizing your documents to fit your wishes and goals is one of the most satisfying services I offer to you. My background is in writing and editing, including an undergraduate degree in English. I have also worked as a legal editor, most notably for a legal ethics treatise (book), as well as for the Minnesota State Bar Association, and the William Mitchell Law Review. I bring all this experience to your estate plan, where personalizing your documents is a central part of my services.

Estate planning requires the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, truly understanding their goals for the future. I am passionate about this creative process, creating an estate plan that provides peace of mind for every stage of life.
