Dana Green – Legal Biography
Dana Green is an Estate Planning attorney licensed in CA, NY and CT. She was raised bi-coastally in New York and California. She received her B.A. in Finance & Business Economics with an emphasis in Spanish & French from Goucher College and her J.D. from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
She has practiced in various fields of law over the years including Insurance Defense Litigation, Family Law and Real Estate Law before starting her own practice specializing in Estate Planning. She is also a trained Mediator (Family and Civil).
Her passion is educating people and providing peace of mind by preparing them for the unexpected. Estate planning is not just for the old or the wealthy. Her motto is: An estate plan is more important than a credit card, so don't leave home without one! If you procrastinate, it may be too late to avoid probate!
Dana has found a niche that helps all single adults with a very important and often overlooked need. Her Peace of Mind package is for anyone 18 or older that is not married - be it never married, divorced, widowed, involved in a long term though unmarried relationship, LGBTQ or high school/college aged young adults once they turn 18. It gives parents and young adults comfort knowing that in case of an emergency, parents can still be involved. Single adults that are divorced must choose new agents for their documents because California is one of only ten states where the date of divorce automatically revokes powers of attorney granted between spouses.
Dana has always been involved in philanthropic endeavors. During law school, she worked in the Criminal Law Clinic (now known as The Innocence Project) under the tutelage of Barry Scheck, who became famous when he was part of OJ Simpson’s Defense Dream Team. She also worked in the Bet Tzedek Civil Litigation Clinic representing the elderly and individuals with disabilities who could not afford private counsel. She is involved with the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers’ Program and The Domestic Violence Council.
Dana is currently on the Board of Directors of Milestone House, a non-profit that provides an innovative residential program for at-risk teenage foster girls. She is a VIP supporter of Go2Grow Mentorship Program & Training Center whose main goal is to provide life coaching for teens and lay a foundation for their future success. She is involved with Charity Wings Arts & Craft Center, a local non-profit. And she was a founding Board Member of Connor’s Cause for Children, a non-profit organization that eases the burdens faced by families who have children with life-threatening illnesses, where she served for 13 years.
