Brittany Birnie Greene joined her father and sister at the Birnie Law Office in 2010. Brittany specializes in estate planning, helping clients with trusts, wills, durable power of attorney for finances, and advanced health care directives. Brittany takes great pleasure in getting to know her clients, so that she can prepare estate planning documents that reflect the clients’ wishes and make their intentions clear. Brittany’s clients often express a profound sense of relief and peace of mind that they have assisted their loved ones by getting their “affairs in order.”
Brittany also specializes in Premarital, Postmarital, Cohabitation, and Property Agreements between future and current spouses, unmarried cohabitants, and family members.
Like her sister, Tate, Brittany is experienced in working with the unique issues that face the LGBT community. She has worked with same-sex couples on negotiating pre-marital agreements and agreements between partners when there is no formal legal relationship, and in preparing estate planning documents.
Brittany received her Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of California, Berkeley. After graduation, Brittany worked for the California Shakespeare Theater before going to law school. Brittany attended her father’s alma mater, earning her J.D. from the University of California Hastings College of the Law in May 2005. Prior to joining the Birnie Law Office, Brittany was a family law practitioner at Flicker, Kerin, Kruger & Bissada, LLP, in Menlo Park.
Brittany also shares her father’s interest in travel and during law school, Brittany had the opportunity to study law in Norway, France, Australia and New Zealand. More recently, Brittany has travelled to Ireland several times to visit her extended in-law family. .
