Of Counsel


Denise graduated from the University of California San Diego, magna cum laude, with a degree in Urban Planning in 1987, and earned her J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law, magna cum laude, in 1990. Over the course of eleven years she worked for large, medium and small law firms as an estate planning attorney, specializing in planning for estates of all sizes, trust administration, estate tax planning, probate administration and estate/trust litigation before “retiring” to care for her young family.

After living in Dallas, Texas for ten years, she is delighted to call San Diego home again.
