Giving Back Through a Gift by Will

Dr. and Mrs. Helfrich

Grateful for her education, Mrs. Helfrich made a gift to USF School of Law through her will. “We hope that our contribution will help USF School of Law maintain its excellence in teaching law to those students fortunate to have the experience.”

Elizabeth “Petie” Helfrich ’58 is proud of her many “firsts” including being the first woman practitioner in Salinas and the first woman president of the Monterey County Bar Association. After serving as deputy district attorney in Alameda County, she was a successful certified specialist in family law and partner at Pioda, Bryan, Ames, Helfrich & Wills until she retired in 1990 after practicing law for 32 years.

We thank Dr. and Mrs. Helfrich for naming the USF School of Law in their wills.
