About Beth Kruchek
Beth Kruchek is an attorney and the founder of Kruchek Law, PLLC, a firm focusing on wills, trusts and estate planning. She was drawn to law because she loves to help people, and finds great satisfaction when she has helped them find peace of mind regarding the future of their family’s estate.
Beth earned her Juris Doctor degree cum laude from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law in 2003. She then clerked for the Honorable Joseph W. Howard at the Arizona Court of Appeals. After her clerkship, she focused on her family and worked full-time as a mother caring for her three young children. Never one to sit still academically, during her homemaking years she attended graduate school part-time and ultimately earned her LL.M. in estate planning and elder law from Western New England School of Law. Beth now works as a solo practitioner in Tucson, Arizona, and spends her days juggling that delicate balance among family, career and service.
Experience In Both Science And Law
Before becoming a lawyer, Beth Kruchek enjoyed a successful academic career as a scientist — first earning her Bachelor of Science in biology at the University of Dayton and then her Master of Science in biological sciences from the University of Cincinnati. Her master’s thesis focused on the wetland habitats of the southeastern United States, and explored the efficacy of the Clean Water Act and its resulting laws and regulations to protect this delicate ecosystem. Intrigued by the legal research required for this project, she chose to follow this interest and seek a career in the law.
