About Amy

Learn Amy’s areas of practice.

I love being a probate attorney. I am able to use my skills to help clients deal with complicated and personal estate matters. My cases range from estate planning, to elder abuse and issues around loss of capacity. I try to bring calm and order to often stressful situations. 

In my free time I love spending time with my family, riding my bike or going for a run.  I grew up in San Francisco and have always practiced law in the Bay Area.

Expertise in Special Needs Trust/Trustee services
Amy is an excellent communicator and she’s also highly intelligent with great integrity. I really appreciate all of her legal expertise with Special Needs Trusts and Trustee services. I am glad I can trust Amy to do whatever she can to help me, with my best interest in mind. I highly recommend her for Trustee/Special Needs Trust services.

Expert at Legal Strategy
I hired Amy to represent me in a high conflict case. Amy assessed all the details and drafted pleadings to move my case forward. Because she listened to me, I felt confident that my case was fully understood by the Court. Going to Court is always difficult. Having a experienced litigator working with me on my case reduced the length of time my case persisted. I was able to resolve the case shortly after Amy began representing me.

My Perfect Attorney
Amy is perfect for my law practice, which is exclusively focused on fiduciary services. She is available to answer my questions whenever they arise and knows the law thoroughly in all aspects. Her moral code and ethical standards are excellent and in line with this area of practice that relies on Trust. Anything to do with probate, trusts, and fiduciary services Amy knows about and can advise quickly and competently. I am lucky to have her counsel.
