Gina has been a paralegal for more than 20 years, working for a patent and trademark firm in Chicago for most of that time. Through an unfortunate twist of fate, Gina was faced with the daunting task of handling her own employer’s estate, learning about probate law, and discovering that she preferred it to patent/trademark prosecution. She shifted course and has enjoyed working in the probate paralegal field ever since. In her free time, Gina enjoys cooking, and dabbling in real estate and loves to spend time with her family and with her Chihuahua, “Mr. Jacques”.
