After nearly a decade of practicing law, and giving birth to two beautiful children, attorney Jessica Peterson finally wrote herself and her husband a will. It wasn’t until a year after formalizing the will that Jessica realized she needed a much, much, more comprehensive estate plan to protect her children and leave the legacy she desired.
With this realization, Jessica founded Summit Legacy Planning. She recognized that if an experienced attorney like herself had put off estate planning for so long, there must be thousands of other families doing the same thing.
Summit Legacy Planning aims to provide exceptional legal counseling to families who, for whatever reason, just haven’t gotten around to making a solid estate plan.
Our top priority is to build a lifelong relationship with you and your family as your trusted legal advisor. We aim to set ourselves apart from traditional estate planning attorneys by providing much more than just legal documents.
Jessica Peterson has devoted her entire legal career assisting individuals with complicated legal issues during challenging times. Jessica prides herself on her ability to listen and counsel clients to make decisions that are best for them personally — and she is adamant that there are no “one size fits all” solutions to a client’s needs.
Jessica became a lawyer in order to make the world a better place by helping people make difficult decisions and deal with daunting events that life can throw at us. As an estate planning attorney, she looks forward to helping each client create a personalized estate plan and leave a lasting legacy for their loved ones. She finds great reward in being able to give families the peace of mind that comes from having an airtight guardianship plan for children, as well as the confidence that comes from education about asset protection and legacy transfer.
Jessica grew up in Tennessee and attended Vanderbilt University as an undergraduate. She attended the University of San Diego School of Law. She is a member of the Utah Bar Association and the Washington, D.C. Bar Association, and is admitted to practice law in both Utah and Washington, D.C.
