As a mother of two incredible boys plus their remarkable wives, a grandmother to one adorable grandbaby, and a wife to the love of my life, I know what it means to love and protect your family. My life's journey started in Winnipeg, Canada where I grew up in the foster care system and graduated as nurse in 1985. Nursing provided a way for me to share my passion of caring for and guiding others through difficult moments in their lives. Eventually I moved to the Sunshine State where I became an Intensive Care nurse and met my husband, Hector de Jesus, who worked as a pediatric emergency room nurse at the time. Shortly after, we got married and had our two sons, fourteen months apart!

For nearly ten years, my job as a lawyer was to help businesses “win” in lawsuits. I put the word “win” in quotations, because generally the only real winners in a lawsuit are the lawyers, after taking into account the time, stress, and money spent by the parties.

Hub Law Group P. C.
175 Derby Street, Suite 9 , Hingham, MA, USA

…when people meet me for the first time and learn that I am a lawyer, many are surprised. Their expectation is that lawyers are “flashy, slick operators” – and that’s just not who I am. I like to think my calm and caring demeanor and desire to educate and truly do the right things for my clients will set me apart from the stereotypical lawyer. Being to some extent the “anti-lawyer” has its pitfalls. Let me give you some examples … One of my law firms areas of focus is Estate Planning. I’m in competition with the “do it yourself on-line” resources all the way up to up to and including the big law firms that give the clients “just what they ask for” – (not what they need). On one end of the spectrum, you get what you pay for … the cheapest possible “estate plan“. But here’s the problem … most of those “plans” are inadequate and truly do not address all of the needs of the “virtual client” … and guess what – the virtual client will never know or be able to rectify the problem because they’re dead before anyone finds out. The responsibility to get the estate straightened out then falls to loved ones … at more legal expense typically than doing it right in the first place (!). Never mind that this time should be reserved for allowing the family to grieve. Have you ever had a Sam Kinison moment? Remember the comedian who used to punctuate his jokes by screaming the punch line? The client will never know BECAUSE THEY’RE DEAD! But this is no joke! Never mind that his estate was a shambles, this is all too often the reality of “cheap, on-line” solutions. At the other end of the spectrum is the client that says “Can you draw me up a will” … and that’s exactly what the lawyer does … without understanding or explaining the full scope of the clients’ estate. I call this “the path of least resistance” type of law firm … they’ll make a bit of money, but guess what … if it is not completely adequate the client will never know BECAUSE … you get the idea.

For as long as I can remember, I have been helping people. As a young man, I travelled with my family throughout south Texas and Mexico giving food and clothing to the poorest of the poor. I later studied to be a church pastor; however I found my true calling when I became a paramedic and discovered the difference I could make in people’s lives ministering to their physical, mental, and emotional injuries and illnesses. I also discovered that I loved to teach, and spent nearly as much time training medical professionals as I did treating patients.

I thought that was the coolest job in the world – traveling everywhere helping athletes achieve their goals and obtain lucrative contracts. As I grow older, I realized I could do so much more. That realization led me to pursuing a career in law and that goal would never change.

Pantea formed Palm Desert Law Group, APC specifically to focus on the needs of families with young children as well as small business owners. Prior to starting this firm, she saw too many instances where the all too common “one-size fits all” estate planning failed, leaving families in court and conflict for years. She also saw that there was a huge disconnect between attorneys practicing estate planning and those practicing business law, such that the complex needs of small business owners were never fully met. And she wanted to change that.
