Cherish De La Cruz helps families and small businesses create life and estate plans that save money, create peace of mind, and prevent unnecessary stress during life's unexpected events. Ms. De La Cruz was initially inspired to pursue estate planning in 2013 after losing her aunt to appendix cancer. While taking care of her aunt's affairs, she realized first-hand the stress and hardship that is created when a loved one passes away and they do not have a comprehensive and customized plan. It is even more complicated when they are a small business owner. Today, this personal perspective and her extensive background in investments and life insurance guides her firm's estate planning process. Leadership in the community is also a key value of De la Cruz Law, LLC. That is why Ms. De La Cruz is actively involved in several non-profit organizations; recently graduating from the Catholic Charities Atlanta Leadership class, serving as past president of the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association, founding board member of the Exit Planning Exchange Atlanta (2019-2020), Leadership Gwinnett Class of 2019, chair of Elder Law Section of the Atlanta Bar Association (2019-2020), and Mosaic Georgia. She dedicates her time to serving and educating small businesses, families, and the larger community about the estate and business planning process so that her wonderful clients can truly take charge of their life and legacy, knowing that they have done everything in their power to protect their loved ones.
