From the point of contact – whether by phone or email, to the moment a client enters the historic brick-walled, antique-filled office, to the unhurried meetings and detailed attention to follow up, one will find Ms. Breckenridge’s approach warm, welcoming, and unique. In addition to providing legal counsel in areas that are critical to the preservation of one’s quality of life and protection of their assets, Ms. Breckenridge genuinely cares about her clients.

Ms. Breckenridge is thankful for the journey she is on – serving others. She loves her work, and her faith is the reason she practices law.

The “motto” of the Estate Law Center, PLLC is, “Protecting the Stewardship of Your God-given Assets.” It is in that spirit that Ms. Breckenridge maintains that . . .

“We must protect those who are not able to speak for themselves. We must protect our neighbor who has been wronged by another. We must reach out to the elderly who may be overwhelmed by a vast system of laws. We must act boldly when others may be caused to be weak, and use the protective arm of the law to guard against the trampling of individual liberties.”

Through Ms. Breckenridge’s representation of her clients, she has seen that there is little in life that naturally readies one for life altering events. Having a plan in place that protects a client while they are on this earth and directs the distribution of their assets upon their passing is critical.

Ms. Breckenridge is humbled by the courage of so many who face challenging situations, and make tough decisions – especially when it comes to matters for which life provides little preparation.

She encourages all within our community to use the legal planning tools available to memorialize their intents through well prepared estate planning documents, taking advantage of the protections available to each individual.
