Estate planning can be an unpleasant topic for some. Sharon is often called upon when clients are facing tax issues or dealing with sensitive matters that must be taken care of in the wake of someone’s death. She skillfully handles tax and estate planning, estate and trust administration and charitable planning matters in a way that clients are comfortable with and easily understand.

Prior to entering private practice, Sharon was a senior attorney at a prominent bank where she primarily worked with trust and estate administrators in the bank’s Trust Department.

Sharon is a frequent lecturer for the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the Chicago Bar Association.
