I am Certified as a Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate law by the California Board of Legal Specialization, and have my LL.M in Taxation. Prior to receiving my J.D. and LL.M degrees, I practiced for more than twenty years in the areas of taxation, accounting, estate planning, business management and development, and human resources, as well as serving for several years as a Vice President at a nationwide human resource consulting firm. I now specialize in the areas of estate planning, trust administration, probate, taxation, business formation and development, adoption and family formation, with a large portion of my practice devoted to advising the LGBT community.

Knows her stuff and is very compassionate
Wendy really personalized for my exact needs and desires. She has done the same for friends I recommended. She really knows the law and tax ramifications. Terrific.
