My practice focuses on estate planning, probate court proceedings, trust administration, and business law.
My practice is dedicated to helping clients of all ages and family situations from traditional to blended to LGBT navigate through the difficult legal and personal issues that come with the areas of my practice.
I am happy to meet with you at my office in Encino. I also meet with clients in the privacy of their own homes and businesses and in my affiliates’ offices that are closer to you. For elderly clients, I can meet as well at assisted-living facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals.
I serve clients in Southern California, particularly in the counties of Los Angeles, Ventura, Orange, and Riverside. I invite you to contact me for an initial consultation, and look forward to meeting you in person.
Education, Memberships And Community Service
For college, I attended the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Chicago, and graduated from Reed College in Portland, Oregon. I obtained my law degree from Lewis & Clark Law School, also in Portland, Oregon. In law school, I was a member of the Law Review and clerked at a litigation firm.
I started my legal career as the Mediation Coordinator for California Lawyers for the Arts, and have been in the business and estate planning field since 1994.
I am a member of the California State Bar, local bar and business associations, and the Beverly Hills Estate Planning Council.
I am available to speak to groups on estate planning issues, including wills, trusts, and selecting guardians for minors, probate and trust administration issues for trustees and beneficiaries, conservatorships, business law, and law practice management.
In the personal part of my life, my husband and I raise three children, I serve on a board for one of their schools, and I have been the Sisterhood President at our Temple. Our rescue dog is Steinway.
