Born and raised in Pottstown, Pennsylvania and a graduate of Dickinson College, Sean and I married in 1995 and together we have been blessed with four children, Patrick, Lucy, Molly and Jack. After years of working in various volunteer positions and owning and operating my own business, Sean and I launched Curran Estate & Elder Law in 2014. As the attorney, Sean provided all of the best legal advice, and I did everything else. I am proud to say now, we have gathered together a wonderful, caring and smart team of paralegals, social workers and support staff. This allows me to concentrate on Estate Administration. I am also the Intake Specialist of our Life Care Planning service. After you speak with our receptionist, you will be scheduled to speak with me. I will gather all pertinent information before you come in to meet with the attorney and our staff. Since I was once the sole paralegal with a hand in every practice area, I have a solid understanding of all the practice areas. Together, we will have an in-depth discussion about your situation and goals. I will need to gather your personal and financial information so that our team can best assess and assist your family’s needs. I look forward to meeting with each of you; as I have been told I’ve never met a stranger. I am a caregiver at heart. My family is the greatest joy of my life. I try to take daily walks in our beautiful Wyomissing Parks for exercise and fresh air. I love the water and spend any time I can either in it or near it.
