Kristen Adams, Attorney at Law

Kristen Adams Headshot
As a native of Redding, California, I relocated to Eureka after achieving my Juris Doctor from Cal Northern School of Law, where I earned several Witkin Awards for Academic Excellence. Prior to that I graduated from Chico State University with a Bachelor of Arts in History. While attending law school, I worked as a paralegal where I gained experience in estate planning, personal injury, unlawful detainers, and civil litigation. I come from a family lineage of elder law attorneys, including my mother, uncle, and grandfather. My first experience with estate planning occurred while watching my mother carefully plan clients’ estates and discourage family feuds. This inspired my true passion for estate planning with the goal of providing peace of mind and solving problems before it becomes too late. My personal interests include exploring the great outdoors, traveling, and running.

I am proud to be part of the PETRUSHA LAW team because of its expertise in finding creative solutions, commitment to high standards for client success, and personalized touch in building trusted relationships.
