Eileen brings a holistic approach to her work with high-net worth individuals and business owners, serving their legal needs to meet their goals and those of the next generation.


Eileen works with high net-worth individuals, generations of families, owners of family and closely-held businesses, corporate fiduciaries and charitable organizations. She brings her clients extensive knowledge in estate and gift tax planning, business transition planning, inter-generational wealth transfers, philanthropic planning, and estate and trust administration. She brings together a collaboration of legal services in the areas of corporate and partnership representation, tax, real estate, charitable foundations, estate planning, employee benefits and conflict resolution.

Eileen enjoys spending time in the southwest United States with family, clients and friends during the winter months: hiking, biking, pickleball and golf, when not working.
