I’m an attorney in Santa Barbara, admitted to the CA Bar in 1972. I have known Joan Medeiros since 1974, even before she went to law school. As the years have gone by, we’ve consulted and collaborated back and forth, trying out ideas on each other and seeking advice on cases. This afternoon, we were in the midst of a social conversation (about our respective health kicks) when she mentioned in passing the solution to a problem I encountered this morning for which I didn’t believe their was a good answer. I immediately set the wheels in motion to rectify the situation, thanks to Joan’s advice, putting the final details in order for the estate plan of an 89-year old lady in hospice care. Joan is the best.
