ELLIE ORTIZ, NOMINATED FOR WOMAN'S CLUB, WOMAN OF THE YEAR 2014

Nine women were nominated to be the Laguna Beach Woman’s Club 2014 “Woman of the Year.”  Short bios were submitted for each nominee, by their nominators.  Below is mine.  I was nominated by a fellow board member of the Woman's Club, who I've known since we were 18 years old.  A luncheon to celebrate the winner will be held at the Woman’s Club and is open to the public.

Ellie Ortiz and I met at the start of our adult lives at Saddleback Valley College. Soon after, life took us in different directions and we lost touch for years.

$500 PER MONTH AFFORDABLE DIVORCE PACKAGES

For the past few months, I have been working out a way to make Divorce and Divorce Mediation more affordable.  This month we launched an affordable monthly payment plan. 
 
As a client you will receive the same terrific service as you would with an up-front $3,000 payment, but instead have the option to pay in manageable increments.
 
Here is how it works.  You schedule a $100 one-on-one hour-long consultation so we can determine if your matter is uncontested or requires more attention.

Special Needs Trusts and Conservatorships

As some of you know, I am the president of the Woman's Club of Laguna Beach.  On January 16, 2014 the Woman's Club is presenting "PLANS TO CURE AUTISM".  The presentation will be made by Dr. J. Gargus, MD, PhD who will describe the cutting edge research, diagnosis and treatment being developed at UCI for Autism. This subject reminded me to make this post.

Many of us know someone that needs a Special Needs Trust or Conservatorship.  Laguna Beach Legal can help.
