Miranda M. Fernandez is an associate in the Firm’s Trusts & Estates practice group, where she focuses her practice on litigation.
Miranda began her career working for a sole practitioner, where she honed the essential skills and knowledge of trust administration, probate, conservatorships, and estate planning that now allow her to successfully litigate in this area. As a trust & estate litigator, Miranda leads family members and professional fiduciaries, whether it be in their capacity as a beneficiary, trustee, or competing conservators, through each step of the litigation process.
Miranda has successfully represented clients in a vast array of litigation ranging from financial elder abuse, pursuing claims for breach of trust and for return of trust property with damages, trust and will contests, contested matters disputing appointment of a conservator, and disputes concerning the validity of estate planning documents, such as powers of attorney. From mediation to trials, she works to help her clients successfully resolve complex legal conflicts in the quickest and most cost-efficient way possible.
Miranda earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Arizona State University’s online program through Starbucks, her paralegal certification from Cal State East Bay, and her Juris Doctorate from the University of the Pacific – McGeorge School of Law, as an evening student while working full-time. Miranda is well acquainted with hard work which gives her the stamina to litigate for clients.
