I have been an estate planning lawyer since 1998. I have a Juris Doctorate degree from Pepperdine University School of Law and a post doctorate degree (LL.M. in Estate Planning) from the University of Miami School of Law. I am a California State Bar certified specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law. In addition, I taught estate planning (Wills and Trusts), estate administration and probate law as an adjunct professor at Cerritos Community College.
