Venessa is our paralegal and government assistance specialist. Like Megan, she has attended numerous courses on Medi-Cal for nursing homes and Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension Benefits. Venessa handled all our applications with the Veterans Administration for our Elder Law clients. She is one of the most knowledgeable persons dealing with the intricacies of processing Aid and Attendance / Enhanced Pension applications for our veterans in the Riverside area. Venessa assists Dennis, Pamela and David with preparing our client’s estate planning documents. She also assists with the probate and conservatorship matters in the Riverside County Probate Court and the San Bernardino County Probate Court.
Venessa became friends with Megan while they were both taking courses in the paralegal studies program at Riverside Community College. When Dennis was looking to add another paralegal to the law firm staff, Megan did not hesitate to recommend Venessa. The rest is history.
Venessa is also known for her diligence and follow through. She has been instrumental in developing many of the law firm’s procedures, which are crucial in reducing costly mistakes that can cost clients time and money.
Venessa has completed her classes for the paralegal studies degree program from Riverside Community College and is the process of completing two non-legal classes to receive her paralegal studies degree. She is licensed as a Notary Public.
She lives in Riverside with her husband, Corey, daughter Lily, and dogs Dallas and Ginger. She occupies her time outside of work with reading, swimming, going to the beach, horseback riding, baking and camping.
