Hi! My name is Adela, your Family Wealth and Legacy Lawyer. First and foremost, I’m a mom to three beautiful kids: Alex, Benny, and Caroline, the ABCs of my life! Second, I am a business owner who wants to help my community protect their lives and legacies the same way I protect mine.
Our number one priority as a parent, business owner, or both, is to guard those we love at all times. No one wants to consider that one day we might not be there for our children or our businesses, but to protect them, we must do so. Proper planning for your estate or business succession keeps families out of court and out of conflict during one of the most difficult times of their lives.
During the early years of my career, I clerked for the Honorable John S. Dalis in the Southern District of Georgia, and worked on complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases as well as Labor and Employment disputes for multiple Fortune 500 companies.
Today, as an estate planning and business attorney, I bring that same passion and tenacity to my individual clients and small business owners. My extensive litigation background allows me to properly draft your documents specifically tailored to avoid the pitfalls and ambiguities that lead to expensive and unnecessary litigation.
I can walk you through the procedure of protecting your assets in both English and Spanish, as I am a native speaker of both languages.
Protecting families and businesses can be complicated, but I am here to simplify that process for you. I will empower you with the knowledge you need to make the right choices for your situation—no matter what that looks like. Let’s start planning for your future now and secure your legacy today.
