I practice Estate Planning, Trust Administration, Probate, and Business Law in the Los Angeles area.
I specialize in designing and drafting estate plans, analyzing taxable events, restructuring and consolidating assets, preparing asset protection trusts and administering trusts. I have often been called upon to create strategies to preserve client assets and design gifting plans to utilize the estate and gift tax exemption. I also have previous experience in planning for VA and Medi-Cal benefits, as well as resolving Medi-Cal estate recovery matters. My goal as an Attorney is to make the estate planning process as painless as possible. I takes pride in providing my clients with a supportive environment while guiding them to the appropriate plan to meet their goals.
I received my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Philosophy from California State University, Northridge and then went on to receive my Juris Doctor (J.D.) cum laude from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. I have been honored by the prestigious American Academy of Attorneys, as one of their Top 40 Under 40 Attorneys for 2018. I am also a member of the Women’s Council of USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, which is dedicated to advancing the welfare of the hospital and its patients.
