Kathy McHugh
Legal Triage Director, Senior Certified Advisor

Kathy McHugh has a couple of interesting job titles at LA LAW Center. Basically, she is taking her vast knowledge of business development, operations management and guest courtesy training and using it to support the business development of her husband's law firm. Kathy makes a point of answering all calls from new potential clients to properly “TRIAGE” them to help get their issues properly addressed in a timely manner. She conducts all initial consultations in order to respond to their immediate questions, which allows her husband, Joe (the attorney) to concentrate on our active client cases. She also helps clients with the VA and Medi-CAL benefits planning and application processes. Kathy has taken all of the training and passed the test to become a Certified Senior Advisor through the Society of Certified Senior Advisors, which gives our clients a great resource of information about seniors needs in legal, financial, health, and social issues.

Before she joined LA LAW Center, Kathy ran a boutique consulting company, called KMC Consulting. Here with over 20 years of business planning and management experience in international leisure and media business development (after 13 initial formative years with the Walt Disney Company & the team that built EPCOT Center). Kathy had developed a well-respected, internationally recognized reputation for providing professional consulting services, including operational "fatal flaws" analysis, new business development, operational planning and troubleshooting for a variety of leisure related businesses.

After being in Abu Dhabi, UAE when the 9/11 disaster happened, Kathy made a decision to stop her consulting that required a lot of international travel and help Joe build his law practice here in Southern California. She resides in the Los Angeles Area with her husband and two children (soon to fly from the nest, as they are both finishing their college and PHD educations). She also loves gardening and taking care of the menagerie of animals at their home, including a new Papillion puppy (that is an office dog several days a week) and a wild peacock named Big Bird that she has tamed and hand feeds every morning!
