Detailed Practice Description

She also has experience with corporate and estate and gift taxation, securities, real property and estate planning transactions in a business context. Before becoming a lawyer, Andrea worked for the California State Legislature as a legislative aide in the Senate and as a legislative director in the Assembly.

I practice law because I enjoy the people I work with. This includes not only great clients, but the people of our firm. I love when I’m in the middle of a large transaction and I can look over at someone in the midst of all the hard work and share a laugh.

The recession put the brakes on a lot of crazy transactions. Business owners are more cautious and clients really rely on their legal team to talk through a deal and collaborate on whether it makes sense.
