Attorney Pamela Valencia

Pamela Y. Valencia is our associate attorney. Pamela has handled hundreds of probate administrations and assisted Dennis with numerous probate litigation matters in the Riverside County and San Bernardino County Superior Courts. She was approved by the Riverside County Superior Court to serve as court-appointed attorney. This resulted in her appointment as the attorney for the famous R&B singer, Etta James during her contested conservatorship proceedings in the Riverside Probate Court from 2010 until the singer's unfortunate death in 2012.

Like Dennis, Pamela has a Master of Taxation Law (LL.M.) degree. She also has a Juris Doctorate (JD) and Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics. Also like Dennis, Pamela is a Certified Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law Specialist. No other law firm of its size in Riverside has two attorneys with the estate planning, elder law and tax credentials of our attorneys.

Pamela has served as the Chair or Co-Chair of the Estate Planning and Elder Law Section of the Riverside County Bar Association for the past several years. She has also served on the Board of Directors for the Southern California Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and is currently the Vice President of the chapter. Pamela is a member of the Riverside County Bar Association, the San Bernardino County Bar Association, the Riverside County Estate Planning Council and the San Bernardino County Estate Planning Council. She is also a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the Life Care Planning Law Firms Association.

Pamela taught the Wills and Trusts class at Riverside law school, California Southern Law School. Several of her students are now practicing estate planning attorneys in Riverside and San Bernardino. She often teaches continuing education classes for attorneys, financial professionals and health care professionals and makes presentations for consumers on various estate planning, elder law and tax subjects.

Pamela enjoys working with various charitable organizations, gardening, and singing. She lives with several dogs and cats, her partner, Dawn, and her mother, who they both provide care for in their home in Corona, California.
