While Debra L. Leffler Streeter have worked in other areas of law, I have found that my passion is in working with families that want to make sure they have a plan in place to protect their decisions and their assets.
You have worked hard for your assets, whether as business owners or by being smart with saving, and you should be able to protect and preserve those assets as much as possible.
It is important to me that my clients understand the different types of trusts. I recently met with a family. The man apologized for asking me to explain it again. He was just a chef and didn’t understand these legal issues.
I said that’s ok, I really can’t cook. He can stick to being a chef and I will be the lawyer. Just because we have different areas of expertise does not mean he was not smart.
I speak at many educational events. In addition to offering educational workshops to families, I have been a guest lecturer for other attorneys through the North County Bar Association and LiveCLE on issues involving elder law and estate planning.
I have also been a guest lecturer for the National Business Institute and California Legal Assistant’s Association.
