Posted by: Josh

Surprise!

Surprise!

Maggie’s sister Maria just passed the Bar! Okay, it’s not that big of a surprise, since we all know Maria is like 90% brains. But what a relief not to have to think about the Bar anymore! 1 for 1 is the smart money when taking the Bar. So congratulations to Maria! We love you!

I’m Not a Businessman, I’m a Business, Man

For the last couple of months I’ve been telling you all that I was working but haven’t yet revealed what I am doing. Well, here’s the post everyone has been waiting for.

Late in June, my friends Erin and Joseph asked me to join the firm they had started following law school, Le + Pelletier, LLP.  They told me I could have my own practice in any area that I’d like and that I was welcome to open a satellite office wherever I liked. So, I found some office space in Valencia and began working to prepare to take clients.

I’m happy to announce that I’m officially open for business. Check out my fancy business cards:

Here comes the part where I plug my services:

I practice Estate Planning which means that I help clients to create a plan through the use of wills, trusts, and other legal instruments to protect their families and their assets if anything were to happen to them.

I really believe in what I do. It’s important to think about what our families will have to deal with if anything happens to us. Creating an estate plan can really help to provide families with a guide for how you want your affairs handled. It really is a gift that you give your loved ones to protect them and make their period of transition smoother and more comfortable.

A lot of people think that Estate Planning is only for the wealthy, but everyone needs a plan, no matter how much or how little they have to pass on. This is especially true for parents of minor children. All of you parents out there NEED at least a will to establish permanent guardianship of your children if anything happens to you, but you also need to plan for the immediate short-term if  you don’t come home from your date night. You need to make sure your babysitter knows what to do and who to call, so that your kids will not have to spend a night in child protective services.

Please feel free to check out the Estate Planning page and my bio on the firm website for more info. And you can always email me at mkeegangross@lepelletier.com if you have an questions, want more information, or want to set an appointment for a free consultation! I will, of course, give discounts on my services to friends, family, and blog readers alike.

Tomorrow I’ll show you some of the photos that Amy took for me during our photoshoot for my headshot for the firm’s website! I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting to show you all these! They are just too fabulous!


It’s Official!

Well, it actually has been for a few weeks now. Sorry for the delayed post.

I was sworn in at Pepperdine, along with the other Pepperdine alumni who passed the February Bar, to the state court by a California State Superior Court Judge and to the Federal court by our own Dean Ken Starr, who used to be a Federal Court Judge. It was a pretty exciting event, as Dean Starr said, it is much more memorable than any graduation ceremony.

I’m so glad I wore my glasses. Don’t I look like so lawyerly?

I think Eleanor was pretty proud of her mama!
