Crista Hermance - Attorney

As an attorney with two young children, Crista has first hand knowledge and experience to understand how important planning is for young families. Estate planning can accomplish so many of your wishes to ensure that if something happened, your kids would be legally protected the way that we want. All families should have some sort of legal estate plan. In speaking with several parents, most of them did not have an estate plan in place or anything to protect their children in case of incapacity or death. It’s scary to think that if a plan isn’t in place, the state would have a plan for you. Odds are, it’s not the plan you would want.

Estate Planning is NOT just for the wealthy, it’s for any parent wanting to put a plan in place to protect their family.

Crista was born and raised in Ventura, California and lived there a majority of her life. She majored in business management at San Diego State University and soon thereafter started working for Citigroup in Jacksonville, Florida. She worked as a project manager for Citigroup and traveled extensively throughout the world. She even ended up relocating to the Philippines for a year which was an opportunity of a lifetime for her. After living in the Philippines, she moved back to Ventura and began her legal career.

She started by volunteering at the Ventura County District Attorney’s office and the Coalition to End Family Violence as a Victim Advocate. Next she started law school at the Southern California Institute of Law and was able to find a position as a law clerk with a firm in Westlake Village where the flexible schedule allowed her to finish law school and take the California bar exam. After passing the bar, she received a promotion to associate attorney and focused on estate planning, personal injury and bankruptcy cases. She really enjoyed helping families with their estate planning and decided to start her own practice after the birth of her first child. She decided to focus her practice solely on estate planning and ensuring that young families know how to protect their family. She enjoys helping families create a specific estate plan to fit their unique needs and providing parents with the peace-of-mind knowing they have a plan in place. Family dynamics are always evolving and she built this practice with growing families in mind. As Hermance Law has continued to serve clients, their area of practice has evolved to include acting as crisis planning attorneys. It is important that the Hermance Law team are able to help our clients not only with their estate planning needs but also if one of their family members passes away. Her goal is to create lasting relationships with her clients and to always be available to help them in the future.

Crista is very passionate about helping children and is involved in the following charities:

  • The BumbleBee Foundation Board of Directors
  • National Charity League, Inc. Ventura County Chapter Juniors Board Member
