Your Guide to Estate Planning Administration and Business Succession Planning
Elizabeth G. Blust entered law school with the intent of becoming a real estate lawyer, but soon after passing the bar realized that her true calling was estate planning and estate planning administration. Planning and administration – whether through probate or trusts – can be confusing. Often there is not a clear path that is “right;” or there may be many paths that will get the clients where they need to go. Most of her clients own real property, so Elizabeth has opportunities to draw upon her 10+ year career in real estate development as she helps her clients navigate through the often baffling tangle of laws and forms.
Elizabeth earned her J.D. from California Western School of Law in San Diego and her bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Dayton. It wasn’t until she became an attorney that she put that journalism degree to work; Elizabeth has been a member of the editorial board of San Diego Lawyer Magazine since 2008 and has written several award-winning articles for the magazine.
While in college, Elizabeth worked in the International Studies office and spent a summer abroad herself, discovering a love of travel that she now shares with her husband Jim and their two daughters (the background photos throughout this website were taken by Jim on their travels). Elizabeth enjoys hiking, especially in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, and targets volcanic areas for her vacations, including Mt. Lassen, Calif.; Mt. Rainier, Wash.; Mt. Haleakala, Hawaii; Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland; and Thira, Greece. She has been a Girl Scout leader since 2004 and is the Lead Membership Organizer for the Mission Trails Service Unit #620. She is a member of the California Bar Association, the San Diego County Bar Association, the Greater San Diego Business Association, Probate Attorneys of San Diego, and the San Diego Press Club. She sings with her church choir and with the San Diego Festival Chorus.
Ms. Blust serves clients in San Diego County in the areas of Probate and Estate Planning.

Contacting Attorney Blust through this website does not establish an attorney/client relationship. She cannot establish this relationship until she knows that, in doing so, she will not create a conflict of interest with her other clients. Also, she and you must reach a mutual agreement on the terms of her representation (e.g., what she will do for you and how much you will pay). Therefore, you should not send a message containing confidential or time-sensitive information.
