Mark Albertson recently left the practice of law and accepted a position as a Trust and Estate Planning Officer. This is a great opportunity for Mark where he will teach estate planning workshops and consult with financial advisors. Mark has been a great leader in the estate planning field for many years and will continue to be a great resource to the attorneys at HIP Law. With this change, Patrick Hanis will lead the Estate Planning department, with fellow attorneys Brian Hanis and Dennis Shanlian. We expect the transition to be as seamless as possible. Mark left with these words, "It is with mixed emotions that I go. I have enjoyed working with you and all of my clients, and I will miss you all. Additionally, Hanis Irvine Prothero has been a wonderful place to work. The attorneys here are incredibly competent and caring people with the highest ethical standards. I will miss working with everyone here." We look forward to continuing to assist you with your Estate Planning, Probate, or other legal needs. Please contact Patrick Hanis or his assistant, Steven Bash, with any questions.
