About Angela...

As a child, I loved reading the inside of the board game lids, so I knew all “the rules.” I found all the little details simply fascinating. I learned that an added benefit is that memorizing the minutiae helps you win a lot more games. Today, that’s how I approach every will, trust, and plan. Effective estate planning is all about “the rules,” and mastering more intricacies means you can offer clients more strategic options. 

Out of law school, I joined a California-based mega-firm with the intention of achieving partner on a very conventional career path… but then my life changed. My family lost my dad to Parkinson's Disease when I was 35. Even with the proper estate plan in place the months that followed his death were tough, especially for my mom. That experience turned me into the attorney that you meet today. I'm an aging mom myself with three active children. I share this all to let you know that I intimately understand your family concerns and your concerns as a business owner. My job is to take that burden off your shoulders.

My clients share their deepest concerns and fears as we explore their options. I love seeing that “aha” look on their faces after I explain how we can use “the rules” to achieve their family and financial goals. I also love that most of my meetings end with a big hug. I bet that most of my old classmates can’t say that. The best part of my job is knowing that I've helped move them through fear and uncertainty and into the next chapter.

When I am not running my law firm, I am out and about with my husband Kevin and our daughter (or making care packages for my two sons in college). I enjoy figure skating, cuddling with our dogs, and volunteering. I also can’t resist a good cheese plate and a nice glass of wine.
