Teresa Granados – Velasco Law Group’s New Business Development Coordinator

Home Head Bg

Passionate, energetic and stella business developer are some of the few words used to describe Teresa Granados. As Vice President at City National Bank for 26 years, Teresa excelled and climbed the corporate ladder, and is one of Corporate America’s success stories. Her plight has always beens to provide the best for her clients, strive for excellence in her work and to connect and network with key decision makers. After 26 years she has now made a career change, to provide solutions in estate and trust planning, inheritance disputes with renowned estate planning and litigation attorney Paul Velasco and his team of attorneys. Teresa is Velasco Law Group’s business development coordinator.

In an interview with her at last weekend’s charity fundraising event for MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute, Long Beach, Teresa made it very clear that working for Paul Velasco and his team isn’t just about a job but delivering quality and a list of tremendous benefits to her network of contacts. She continued to say that at the end of the day death is not something people speak about easily but disputes and wealth management after death is certainly a topic many people are concerned about but don’t know how to navigate a prevention strategy legally. There are many legal entities that claim they can provide estate planning services but few have the litigation mindset upfront.

“I have seen it all, I have worked hard in the banking sector it is time for me to do something that helps families in a different way” says Teresa. “We all work hard, we have savings and when we face death, our wealth should remain as much as possible with our families” Teresa continues. How many times have we seen families fall apart when it comes to administering an estate, probate court can be devastating and litigation is a costly exercise. It is a no brainer to get Paul and his team to review every case, from simple to complex. Business owners who own houses must have an estate plan and business succession program put in place. All of which is tough to talk about but it has to be done.

Paul Velasco was dancing at this years’ Dancing For Our Stars event held at the Long Beach Convention Center. Paul and his dance partner Josie Neglia won the most enthusiastic prize for the evening. Teresa and her husband attended the event alongside other staff members. Nicole Napalan recently awarded Staff Member of the Year by the Long Beach Bar Association was also in attendance. “The event was spectacular and our contribution back to the community is something I value and respect” says Teresa.

Teresa is based at the Velasco Law Group Downey office but travels and networks throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. She will be working very closely with the team of attorneys at Velasco Law Group in delivering superior client relationship management. Teresa is passionate about the hispanic community as well and will be meeting with key decision makers within the Hispanic business community in Los Angeles. Teresa can be contacted via email at or by phone at 562-432-5541.
