Since 1981 it has been my mission to help individuals and families in the Mendocino County area with their estate and inheritance planning needs. My years of experience in estate planning and administration include drafting and administering hundreds of estate plans. Every estate plan is different as the needs and concerns of each client are unique. My customized estate plans include:
Revocable Living Trust
Special Needs Planning
Planning for a blended family
A/B Trusts for married couples
Qualified Retirement Trusts
Asset Protection Planning
Although my estate plans rarely have to be probated, this office has an efficient and comprehensive system for probating Wills. I also have knowledge of social security laws and skills for recognizing elder abuse.
I am a founding member of the Mendocino County Women’s Bar Association and co-chair of that organization as well as past president of the Mendocino County Bar Association. I have served on the boards of many community groups; I drafted legislation for Mendocino County Community Services District creating an ordinance governing groundwater management. I have also authored an amendment to the California Family Law Code.
