We had the good fortune of connecting with Amy Oakden and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amy, what’s the end goal, career-wise?
I would like to see Oakden Law grow so that at the end of my career, we have multiple staff and attorneys who are serving as valued and trusted advisors to our clients. I never plan to fully retire as I absolutely love what I do, but I would like to have so many great people working with me that I feel comfortable taking on less and less as I age. I would also love for one of my kids to take over the business one day – what a true legacy to leave behind for my family!

What should our readers know about your business?
I love helping my clients leave a legacy behind for their families – whether that’s with their estate planning or with their family businesses (or better yet – both)! Owning a business is not easy. There have been challenges and ups and downs along the way, but I’ve found that if you continue to provide the same high level of service that our clients expect, no matter how much you grow, everything else falls into place. Integrity and delivering on what you promise is number one.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I was born and raised in Temecula, so I would definitely take them to our amazing Temecula wine country. We’d have a day of wine tasting and would have to visit Europa, Ponte, Monte de Oro, Danza del Sol and Doffo (my favorites), and we’d most likely have lunch outside on the patio at Ponte. We would also have to walk through Old Town Temecula, visit some antique shops and boutiques and eat at one of the many amazing restaurants – most likely my favorite taco spot the Cowgirl Cantina. We’d also have to head down to the beach, most likely Mission Bay, for some paddle boarding and a barbecue on the beach.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Mostly my family! They are always supportive of me every step of the way, and they make me want to do better every day. I also want to thank all of our clients for trusting Oakden Law with their planning, and our amazing referral partners for helping us grow and for providing us with a network of trusted advisors for our clients to rely on.
