I have been an established attorney in the State of California for over 14 years, initially compelled to attend law school to continue pursuing my passion for music and film that started while finishing my undergrad work at UCLA.
During my time at UCLA, I worked in the music industry at Geffen Records and Zomba Music Publishing. I applied only to and was accepted by Southwestern—a law school with a strong and reputable entertainment department. While there, I clerked in the Legal Department at Lions Gate Entertainment, negotiating and drafting production agreements. After graduating law school and passing the bar, I was hired at Paramount Pictures Corporation in the Music Legal Department and quickly rose the ranks, earning the position of Director of Music Licensing within one year.
About a decade ago, after I married and became a mother, my passion changed to my three sons. I quickly became aware that traditional estate planning had many holes, and I wanted a better system for my family. It was then that I decided to make a major career shift and open an estate planning law practice with my sister.
My sister and I created a system to ensure that our families would be protected if the worst were to transpire. If something were to happen to my husband and me, our kids will never go into protective custody and loving short-term guardians will know just what to do, named agents will have access to our accounts to take care of my children financially, and my kids will receive their inheritance protected from future creditors, lawsuits, bankruptcy, and future ex-spouses. For over 10 years now, my sister and I have built and established a law practice serving clients that we are proud of.
We are on a mission to provide the same caring and thoughtful legal protection for your family and for our community as a whole.
