I am excited to announce that we have a new member on our Trusts and Estates team!  Laurel E. Dein has joined our Sacramento Office as an Associate.  Laurel’s practice focuses on all aspects of estate planning, including the preparation and implementation of both foundational and sophisticated trusts, wills, powers of attorney, health care documents, irrevocable trusts, as well as trust and probate administration.  As a litigator myself, I am excited that Laurel also has a bit of a litigator in her:  she has successfully represented clients in a variety of court proceedings throughout California, including probate disputes, trust and will contests, elder abuse claims, and fiduciary abuse allegations.  We are delighted to have Laurel on board.  Her arrival only enhances our ability to effectively and efficiently deliver the highest standard of legal counsel to all of our clients.  Please join me and Weintraub Tobin in welcoming Laurel to the Trusts and Estates team!
