Whatever you choose to do, leave tracks. That means don’t do it just for yourself. You will want to leave the world a little better for your having lived.

April Herrera is a paralegal where her work focuses on probate estate administration, trust administration, and estate planning.
Initially, she wanted to be a prosecutor and work with the San Francisco District Attorney’s office. Becoming a paralegal was something that was unexpected. After graduating from San Francisco State a year earlier than she anticipated, she wanted work experience in the legal industry before seriously pursued law school. She started working for a law firm in San Francisco in the fall of 2013 and immediately knew that a career in law was what she wanted. Susanne Cohen, an employer of April’s at the time, highly suggested that she obtain a paralegal certificate, so she went back to school for a year while still working full time.
April obtained her paralegal certificate from Skyline College in 2015, and has been a certified paralegal ever since. She still, however, entertains the idea of going to law school to obtain her JD to become an attorney, where she’d plan to specialize in trust and estates law, an interesting area of law. April enjoys coming together as a team to serve our clients at what is probably the worst time of their lives and make the estate/trust administration process as easy as possible for the surviving family members.
Outside of the office, April recharges her batteries through photography and rock climbing.
