Bridget joined FRB in January 2020. She began her career here in Estate Administration and has since expanded into Elder Law and Labor & Employment Law. Bridget has also spent time in FRB’s Real Estate and Estate Planning Practice Groups, making her well-poised to handle interdisciplinary matters.
Bridget’s experience includes assisting with Medicaid planning and applications, preparing estate administration and probate petitions, drafting petitions for both Article 81 and Article 17-A guardianships, participating in high-net-worth estate planning matters from intake to document execution, assisting with residential and commercial closings, and working on FRB’s rapid response team during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Bridget is focused on NYS EPTL Article 13A, privacy issues, digital assets, and their implications on estate planning and administration.
Bridget obtained her Bachelor of Finance at the University of Notre Dame in 2018, pursuing courses in finance, accounting, and business law subjects that complement her work in FRB’s Private Client Practice Groups. Bridget then enrolled in Hofstra Law School on a Legal Scholars Award, graduating in 2021 while working at FRB. During her time at Hofstra, Bridget wrote a note for Hofstra’s Labor and Employment Law Journal, participated in Hofstra’s 17-A Guardianship Practicum, and assisted clients through Hofstra’s Federal Income Taxation Clinic. She also pursued electives in the subject areas of estate planning, tax, and real estate law which helped her launch her career and gain work experience in expediting, real estate law, title insurance, and elder law before she joined FRB.
