Raquel Gutierrez

Riverside Estate Planning Legal Assistant

I am originally from Lima, Peru. My father was an undercover narcotics agent between the borders of Peru and Colombia until we moved to the United States. During our time in Peru, the Shining Path or Sendero Luminoso (A communist revolutionary organization established in the 1960’s) was on a killing spree and murdered several of my father’s colleagues and friends. Needless to say, we had to move. We made California our home and have been here since 1985.

I am often the first contact on client calls making sure any matter related to client service is handled or brought to the attention of the appropriate attorney. As the Estate Planning Legal Assistant for Moynihan Lyons, PC, my primary responsibilities focus on supporting the firm’s estate planning attorneys from the moment a client is engaged until the matter is closed. I also assist with trust funding, real estate transfers, and oversee client billing/account matters. I enjoy what I do and love to see how happy our clients are at the end of the process.

I have been a local to Riverside since 1990. I am a graduate from National University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Literature. I also possess a Community Interpreting Certificate in Spanish.

I am happily married, have been with my husband for the past 10 years. We have one son who is 7 years old.
