Over the past 5 years, Ms. Tedesco has helped countless clients get their affairs in order and ensure their wishes are granted. To celebrate her work anniversary here at Bratton Law, we asked Brittany a few questions about her career which she answered below.
What do you enjoy most about your work as an estate planning and elder law attorney?
Our services at Bratton Law provide our clients with so much value. Whether it be through creating estate planning documents tailored to address our clients wishes or concerns, or by protecting assets that our clients worked so hard for over their life time, we provide a peace of mind that, at the end of the day, is extremely fulfilling.
Why did you choose this practice area?
Estate planning and elder law is /a collaborative process between the attorney and the client, and I have always been drawn to an area of law that would allow me to work directly with clients to solve their problems.
What is your favorite part of your job?
The people that we work with and the team that we have built at Bratton Law is by far the best part about this job. I couldn’t get through the day without the support of the staff in the office. We have staff that have been here for years that know our clients like family, and because we are growing, we have new employees that bring such an energy and fresh perspective to the office.
What do you do in your free time?
I de-stress by going for long runs, working out, reading anything I can get my hands on (fiction, non-fiction), going to local wineries and breweries with friends, etc.
Do you have a proudest moment working at Bratton Law?
One specific case that I recall, I was able to help our 95 year old client save her family home after the board of social services wrongfully denied her Medicaid application. We had to go through several levels of appeals, however, we ultimately prevailed, and the client was able to get the benefits that she deserved.
What three words would you use to best describe Bratton Law?
Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Reliable.
