I love working with all the families who have trusted me with their loved ones and avoiding probate through estate planning. I even appreciate the opportunity to help those who needed probate and let me navigate them through court.
As I look forward to helping more people and families through these legalities, I wanted to also provide a back up, more options, and flexibility. For those times I’m sick, in appointments, or just booked six weeks out, I’ve hired another attorney: Lisa Villareal. She joined our Burkhardt Law Firm family in June.
Lisa has been licensed to practice law in the state of Missouri since 2007. A St. Louis native, she attended Parkway Central High School in West St. Louis for high school. She graduated with her B.A. in Political Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia and continued her education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. Knowing that she wanted to help individuals and families better plan for their futures she participated in the UMKC School of Law Estate Planning Clinic and was the recipient of the UMB Excellence in Estate Planning Award for her work in the Clinic. When working in a position with H & R Block she was recognized for her excellent service to clients and now brings this same excellent service to the clients of Burkhardt Law.
Lisa is still shadowing me and learning how I practice, but if you see her in the office or out networking, don’t hesitate to say hi!
