About me

Brenda is a Trusts & Estates Planning Attorney with her primary office located in Carlsbad (she also has satellite offices in Costa Mesa and La Jolla). Brenda is a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law where she served as an Editor on the San Diego International Law Journal and published a scholarly article in the Law Journal. 

Brenda is involved in a variety of professional and community organizations such as the San Diego North County Bar Association, Inns of Court, North County Estate Planning Council, and the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce. She is admitted to practice in the United States Federal Court for the Ninth District and all California Courts and is a frequent speaker at educational events for other planning professionals.


Brenda is also a published author of many articles and 3 books on estate planning. The most recent book was released in June of 2009 and is called “Safeguarding the Nest”. Her passion is helping families protect their children and keeping families out of the court process at incapacity and death.

On a more personal note, Brenda is married to Len, the CEO of the web hosting company WebIntellects, Inc. and she has two small children, Lenny (4) and Taylor (17 months). She also has two dogs, Starsky and Semper (her lovable German Shepherds).
