Vanessa Gregor, J.D., LL.M.

Our Partner, Vanessa Gregor, passed away March 8, 2019, at age 51, after a 5-year battle with cancer. Vanessa was an avid tennis player, adored doting on her nieces, loved outdoor adventures, and had a tremendous sense of humor. She loved the desert, where she enjoyed relaxing by the pool with her niece and sister. And she was always ready to party - generously sprinkling in her wry sense of humor.

We also considered Vanessa our adopted "Aussie" since she lived in Australia with her family for some time before settling down in Corona Del Mar.

Vanessa was also an extraordinary attorney. She worked at Brown & Streza for 21 years and was a partner for the last 12 years. Vanessa was incredibly bright, and she had an intuitive sense of the right result even in areas outside of her primary practice area. Her high standards helped to raise the bar for current and future Brown & Streza attorneys, and it was truly a privilege to work with her.

Her life personally and professionally touched so many others for good. We are deeply saddened to have lost Vanessa’s friendship and expertise.
