A Jacksonville native, Ms. Naugle's clients come from throughout the greater metropolitan area.

In her estate planning practice, Ms. Naugle creates documents that are designed to protect and preserve her clients' assets in accordance with their goals and wishes while at the same time minimizing the tax impacts on their heirs and beneficiaries. She regularly prepares and reviews wills, revocable trusts, advance medical directives, and financial and health care powers of attorney. In the probate area, Ms. Naugle provides representation to executors and other personal representatives, helping them navigate the process from the initial filing through the payment of the estate's creditors to the closing of the estate and the distribution of its assets. She also assists clients who have been named as guardians for people who have become incapacitated and thus incapable of handling their own affairs as well as for clients who are seeking a guardianship.

Ms. Naugle's dedication to her clients in what are often sensitive matters has earned her acclaim from her colleagues, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.
