Attorney Profile

Attorney Profile

Talking with an experienced estate planning attorney can make the process of estate planning simpler and more efficient. A client is more than the information on an intake form. It is about ascertaining a client’s hopes and dreams for future generations. Using an attorney experienced in estate planning can make all the difference.

I began my career working in the social work field, so I have a strong knowledge of family dynamics. This background makes me more compassionate and understanding with respect to the concerns and dreams of families.

I decided to attend law school because I witnessed, first hand, the need for legal services. I graduated from the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. During law school, I worked at law firms, and volunteered at legal organizations, such as the Senior Legal Hotline. I opened my own office because I recognized the need for affordable and personalized legal services.

I am a member of the State Bar of California, Trusts and Estates Section, President of the Silicon Valley Society of Financial Service Professionals, and the past president of the Santa Clara County Estate Planning Council. I served two terms on the City of San Jose Senior Citizen Commission.
