Lori Marschke

Lori Marschke at Holdsworth Law Firm, P.C.

Originally from the Midwest, Lori Marschke attended college at the University of Minnesota and received a degree in Law and Social Issues. Lori attended law school at Valparaiso University School of Law, graduating magna cum laude in 2005. During law school, Lori was a teaching assistant in legal writing, as well as an editor and writer for the law review-authoring "Proving Deliberate Indifference: Next to Impossible for Mentally Ill Inmates," 39 Val. U. L. Rev. 487 (2004).

After graduation, Lori was admitted to practice law in Arizona and joined the firm of Freeman Huber Law, PLLC (formerly Gregory W. Huber P.C.). For over 10 years, Lori concentrated her practice in the areas of commercial real estate, corporate law, and business transactions, and primarily represented clients with large real estate development projects.

Recently, Lori has begun focusing her practice on assisting small business clients, where her experience with business, financing and real estate is especially helpful. In these areas, which often involve complex situations, Lori's analytical and legal writing skills are particularly useful in producing clear, concise, and effective documentation for her clients.

Now, Lori has joined Holdsworth Law Firm, P.C. Her background and experience with real estate and business transactions are a perfect complement to the Firm's estate planning practice because reducing liability and risk during someone's life is as important to protecting assets as is planning on what to do with those assets after death. Lori can advise her clients on how to structure their businesses, how to maintain corporate and LLC records, how to negotiate and draft business and real estate contracts, and how to manage legal risk-all with an eye toward avoiding potential litigation.

In her free time, Lori enjoys internet research-everything from natural health topics to consumer reviews-and spending time with her family. She keeps very busy with her 6-year-old son and 4-year-old twins.

Matthew D. Hadfield was raised in a small town in Utah. Matthew received his undergraduate degree in Politics from Southern Virginia University, where he graduated summa cum laude, served as student body president and played intercollegiate football.

After law school, Matthew began his legal career serving as an active duty Captain in the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General's Corps.

After his military service, Matthew's interest in gaining expertise in estate planning led him to Holdsworth Law Firm, P.C., where he focuses on serving clients with estate administration needs.
