About eight years ago, my husband and I decided we wanted to raise our children outside the hustle and bustle of Orange County. Our move to Windsor, Colorado has been everything we hoped it would be: we love our community, schools, church and friends. However, as a mom of four, I have no desire to retake the bar in Colorado which is what is required for me to practice law where I now live. Fortunately, with technology, computer access and cloud storage, I have found that practicing law from a distance is not impossible, actually it is quite seamless.
Working from my home in Colorado allows me to be a mother to my four children who range in age from thirteen (13) to five (5) years old. “Telecommuting” allows me to be active in my community, my church and in my home. I do return to California a few days a month for those who desire face to face interaction with clients upon request.
I love assisting other attorneys. I enjoy learning and implementing best practices. Each attorney I work with benefits from the experience of the others I work with or have worked alongside. The collaboration that takes place with solo attorneys is valuable for everyone because the saying “two heads is better than one” is very true. I have always enjoyed being part of a team and working in this capacity allows me to create the ultimate “win, win” scenario.
I have over ten (10) years of experience working primarily in the estate planning and trust administration areas of the law. I enjoy working with families to create a perfectly customized plan for their particular situation. I enjoy asset protection and business planning as well. I believe in the saying (paraphrase from Benjamin Franklin) “failure to plan is planning to fail.”
I earned my Juris Doctor degree from Chapman University School of Law, now known as Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law. I earned this degree as well as a Certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution while working and attending night school part time. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Pacific Christian College (now Hope International University) while doing a major portion of coursework for my degree in Communication from California State University, Fullerton.
