More about our guest:
Brittany Britton, Esq. of Britton Law Group, P.C. is a California licensed estate planning attorney.
Brittany blends emotional insight and legal expertise to offer a contemporary approach to estate planning. She believes that a client who understands the ins and outs of the law is an empowered and satisfied client. Brittany always explains the law in plain english, approaches each situation with a creative and compassionate eye, and truly enjoys getting to know the families she works with.
Brittany earned her J.D. at Golden Gate University School of Law and is a member in good standing of the California State Bar. She earned a B.A. in psychology at the University of Arizona, where she competed as a NCAA Division I volleyball player and was active in the mentor program for at-risk youth. After graduating, she worked for a solo estate planning attorney in Tucson, learning so much about running a small business and providing excellent estate planning services. Brittany volunteered as a court appointed special advocate (C.A.S.A.) for foster youth during that time and throughout law school. During law school she also worked as a records clerk at an international law firm and a judicial clerk at the San Francisco Unified Family Court.
After graduating from law school and passing the California Bar exam, she and her family moved back home to the Los Angeles area. Starting her own practice allowed Brittany the opportunity to create a unique business model and provide the convenience and affordability most law firms are unable to offer their clients.
Brittany lives in Valley Village, California with her husband, daughter and two dogs. She enjoys cooking, hiking, practicing yoga, and cheering on the University of Arizona Wildcats.
