Gina Leguria earned a bachelor’s degree from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 1989. She went on to receive a Master of Business Administration degree from Golden Gate University. In 1999, she graduated from the McGeorge School of Law, Pacific University with a Juris Doctor degree.
After accumulating these impressive educational credentials, she founded the Law Firm of Gina Leguria. This was in 2000, so she brings a wealth of experience to the table. Her areas of expertise are estate planning and elder law, and she provides comprehensive assistance within these legal specialties. She has the uncanny ability to make clients feel at ease when they are discussing sensitive subjects, and she is a highly effective communicator.
Attorney Leguria is a respected member of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys. This is a national organization that has been promoting estate planning excellence for more than a quarter of a century. As an Academy member, she has access to intensive, ongoing research that is continually being conducted by legal scholars. Since laws that are relevant to estate planning and elder law issues are always subject to change, this connection is invaluable.
She is deeply committed to educating people in her community about the importance of estate planning and another very important subject that is closely related. Most senior citizens will need help with their activities of daily living, and many will reside in nursing homes. Medicare will not pay for long-term care, but Medi-Cal will assist with these costs. People who are not aware of this gap in Medicare coverage often face difficult circumstances.
It takes informed advance planning to qualify for coverage at the right time without losing anything in the process. Attorney Leguria offers free seminars to raise awareness. She is also a frequent speaker at events like the Women2Women Financial Education Series and Professional Women’s Group symposiums.
The work that she does with her clients coupled with her educational outreach efforts consume a great deal of her time. However, she is also a civic minded person that has done years of volunteer work for her church.
