University of San Diego School of Law
I represent individuals in the areas of estate planning, trust administration, and probate administration. While at Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP, I was a member of the legal team for Petitioner in the Estate of Miramontes-Najera (2004) 118 Cal.App.4th 750, which was a case of first impression regarding the interpretation of California Probate Code Section 5021.
I am a partner in the Estate Planning Group of Henderson, Caverly, Pum & Charney LLP. Prior to joining my current law firm, I was an attorney in the Family Wealth and Exempt Organizations Practice Group at Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP. I am certified as a Specialist in estate planning, trust, and probate law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. I have also presented CLE courses through CEB for attorneys in the area of estate planning and trust administrations.
I am a member of the California State Bar (Trusts & Estates Section), the San Diego County Bar Association, and the North County Estate Planning Council – San Diego. I am also a member of the Scripps Health Foundation Gift Planning Advisory Board.
I grew up in Pasadena, California and moved to San Diego in 1998 to attend law school. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters.
