He majored in Political Science at UC Berkeley before going to Golden Gate University School of Law.

Blake is Amir’s estate planning mentor. Most people think that estate planning is hard work but it’s not … and, here are the secrets: First, it’s imperative to start the day with a long hike. Second, you have to take breaks once every two hours. Third, eating snacks and treats throughout the day, preferably once every two hours, should never be overlooked. Fourth, play time and laughter is just as important as work. Amir has come a long way but he still has room for improvement.
Rescue dogs, Bay and Clifford, spend their time supervising Amanda during her Zoom meetings. They will frequently pop in to make sure Amanda’s clients are happy campers. When they are not supervising, they enjoy making social media reels, napping, begging for treats and barking at any potential burglars that may be at the door.
Ronin’s main duty is keeping Michael on his daily schedule. Breakfast (for Ronin) and coffee (for Michael) must be served every morning at 8:30 sharp. In the afternoon, it’s time to patrol the neighborhood for cats and check the bushes for any new smells. Ronin also cares about the environment. Whether he’s snacking on leftover veggies or monitoring the kitchen floor, he’s always ready to lend a helping paw in the fight against food waste.
