Changes at Fleming & Curti, PLC

Print Article
Jacque Mingle

Usually, this space is occupied by a report on a recent case or circumstance. We try to generalize those specific cases for our Arizona clients. Or perhaps we tackle a larger issue that comes up regularly. Today, though, we’d like to tell you about new and upcoming changes at Fleming & Curti, PLC.

We’re not promising that these will be the final changes in the next few months. In fact, we anticipate even more changes at Fleming & Curti. But we do want to share those changes with you as they develop.

Meet Jacque Mingle

We are pleased to introduce our community to new lawyer Jacquelyne J. Mingle. Jacque (we think only her parents ever used the hard-to-spell version) started working with us on February 1, and she’s already fitting in very well.

Jacque graduated from law school in 2012, and has spent her entire career working in the elder law and estate planning field. She has been actively involved in the legal community, and regularly presents on elder law issues.

Like most lawyers, Jacque brings a unique background to her practice. In her case, that includes a strong journalism background — she got her undergraduate degree in the field, and was a working journalist (now a bit of an endangered species) before leaving USA Today for law school.

For the past year, Jacque has co-taught the Trusts & Estates class at her alma mater. She has a natural affinity for teaching and presentations, and we’re looking forward to working with her for many years.

Feel free to send your notes of congratulation (or, if you know us well, consolation). She’s anxious to make her mark, and to strengthen her ties to the Fleming & Curti community.


Are there other changes at Fleming & Curti, PLC? Funny you should ask.

Tom Curti and Robert Fleming have practiced law together for over a quarter century. They were law school classmates, graduating together in 1976. Even with rudimentary math skills, you could probably see that they are both nearing retirement age.

Tom has set his retirement date, in fact (Robert is still avoiding discussions about the topic). Tom will leave the full-time practice of law on July 1, 2019.

We’ll have more on that change in upcoming weeks. For now, we are eagerly introducing our new lawyer to our clients, vendors and colleagues (many of whom already know her, of course).

Changes at Fleming & Curti? You bet. We’re looking forward to telling you about others soon.
