About Me

I graduated from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and have been a practicing attorney since 1991. Over half of my practice is devoted to estate planning, special needs trusts, conservatorships and elder care issues. I also have extensive experience representing neutral fiduciaries in contested matters. I have a passion for the disabled and disenfranchised, and I'm a dedicated to the caring and professional practice of law.

    I have known Ms. Pollock for about 15 years. We have worked together on several matters involving estate planning, probate and trust administration and litigation, and special needs planning (Medi-Cal, Medicaid, etc.). Ms. Pollock is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, and professional, and I highly recommend her.
