Originally from the Chicago area, Mr. Gray specializes in all areas of estate planning, probate and elder law including nursing home, asset protection, Medicaid and annuities.

Mr. Gray views his law practice as an opportunity to work with and help people, and enjoys personally meeting with each client so they can better understand the legal process. After working with a number of business owners, Mr. Gray was inspired to add an Elder Law Center to his practice when he realized that all people inevitably need to deal with elder law issues.
