China Alexiz Nichole Amie

Associate

Biography

I take my responsibility as an attorney who works primarily in probate and guardianship very seriously.
The circumstances surrounding these areas of practice — someone passing or someone needing a guardian to administer their affairs —are incredibly sensitive and require special attention. It’s important to have a command of the law and to use it to advocate effectively on behalf of my clients. I believe it’s equally important to do so with empathy, understanding, and a listening ear. If I can help guide someone through these processes while relieving some of emotional hardships they may be feeling I know  I’ve done my job.

What China Does When She’s Not Practicing Law

China’s family is the center of her universe — whether it’s taking her 3 year old nephew to the park or driving her grandfather to run an errand. She understands better than most what a gift life is — and how fleeting it can be — and is determined to make every day count.
