“I’m a planner by nature.”

This is what Peter says about himself.

Maybe it’s his modest personality, but what he doesn’t tell you is that he’s also an exceptional listener.

When you meet with Peter, he takes the time to learn about your unique family and financial situation. The world of estate planning is a complex one, and you can count on Peter to take the time to answer your questions in plain English – he appreciates how important it is for you to feel comfortable with the choices you are presented with.

On any given day, Peter can be found in his office drafting Wills, codicils, and both revocable and irrevocable trusts. He also helps his clients with the estate administration process. He knows that managing estates and navigating the probate process can be daunting, so he’s always ready to lend a hand.

When he’s not in the office, Peter enjoys running, reading, and listening to podcasts. He likes to travel, and even though he won’t be winning any culinary awards any time soon, he still enjoys experimenting in the kitchen. He’s a Parish Council Member of the Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral and is also a Sunday School teacher.
