About Me

Family is a top priority for me.   I have been in practice with my husband since 1983, and three of our four children are attorneys in our office. My mother and my son-in-law also work with our office.  .    Our employees are also considered to be part of our family,  and even some of their relatives work for us.    Since family is so important to  me, I want to help my estate planning clients protect and provide fo their families.


 


Community involvement and being a volunteer are also important to me.  I am on the GRANADA HILLS IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION,   GRANADA HILLS SOUTH NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL,  and a past pesident of the GRANADA HILLS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.   


 


i am lucky to practice  in an area of law, and a location, that I love.
