    I am an attorney practicing in another field of law but also in Santa Clara County. I recently had occasion to consult with Ms. Parrish on an estate planning matter. While I'm not an estate planning attorney, I have some knowledge of the field. She was able to answer all of the questions I threw at her regarding wills vs. living trusts, durable power of attorney, special needs trusts, probate litigation and more. She clearly knows her field. She recently became certified as a Specialist in the field by the State Bar of California. I can recommend Ms. Parrish to anyone with estate planning needs. She's good, she's easy to talk to, she puts it all in plain English....what's not to like?
