Although early spring brought the Covid-19 crisis and darkness to many businesses on Ave. Del Mar, Jennifer Elliott, Attorney and Counselor at Law, was available to help clients via Zoom video conferences and phone meetings. When in-person contact was limited, Ms. Elliott advised clients through technical communication. She also offered free educational videos regarding the documents needed to protect family’s assets, as well as information about preparing for Coronavirus self-quarantine and/or incapacitation.

Located in the heart of downtown above H.H. Cotton’s, San Clemente Estate Law, P.C. offers wills, trusts, powers of attorney, deeds, and all transfer documents. Ms. Elliott stresses the importance of working with families and businesses to help them plan and protect their interests by avoiding court and conflicts. 

With 30 years of legal experience, Ms. Elliott began her career as a legal secretary earning a certificate in paralegal studies. She earned her law degree 17-years-ago. Her clients receive the best in-class estate planning technology. Seminars are held regularly to educate the community on protecting their assets and loved ones, and Ms. Elliott also writes a blog which focuses on various tips including how to reduce taxes, and how to avoid probate. 

Ms. Elliott’s daughters are also in the field of helping people. Julianne, age 24, is a nurse, and Jacqueline, age 25, is a graduate student studying Eastern medicine. Ms. Elliott has lived in San Clemente for four years, and she loves it so much she bought two houses and a cremation niche. With the purchase of the niche at St. Clement’s Episcopal Church, she jokes that she can be a San Clemente resident forever. 

An avid marathon runner for 14 years, she is a member of the Talega Run Club. Not only do they run together, but they participate in the polar plunge every January. This activity involves running from Talega to the beach and jumping into the frigid water. With 125 race medals and counting, she decorates her Christmas tree with the shiny objects every year.

A true San Clemente citizen, Ms. Elliott belongs to the Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Business Association, and the Pier Pride Endowment Committee.
