Business Profile: Keeping it in the Family – Spees & Spees Law Firm
October 7, 2021 | Kayla Anderson
Frank and Judy Spees have been attorneys with a focus in estate planning in Incline Village for more than 40 years, and now their daughter Kristen is next in line to take over succession planning for their clients.
“Our primary focus of what we do is estate planning, wills, trusts, deed work, and powers of attorney,” Judy says.
When Kristen graduated from Incline High School, she earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Hawaii, Manoa, focusing on political science and then received her JD degree from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego. “I practice estate planning like my parents. They encouraged me to go to law school and now I am licensed in Nevada, California, and Hawaii.
It has been beneficial working with them because they have so much to teach me from their years of experience. I have been able to help them with technological advances by updating websites, fillable forms, and meeting clients online. Now, this is a job that can be done from anywhere in the world,” Kristen says. Her brother Justin is also a paralegal and investment advisor.
