Firm Overview

Sacramento Attorney:
Trust Administration, Wills, Estate Planning

When I graduated from the UCLA School of Law in 1983, I knew I would return to Sacramento, the community my family has lived in for four generations, to establish my own practice. In the 30 years since, I have focused on estate planning, an area of law where I am able to help my clients build legacies and protect their loved ones. Today, I continue to serve several of those original clients and, in many cases, their children, grandchildren, other family members and friends. I assist young couples with simple wills to protect their minor children, counsel professionals preparing for retirement on appropriate trusts and provide estate planning services to seniors with their own unique concerns.

Together with classmates from law school, we formed our own law firm. I established that firm's Sacramento office at the Court Plaza Building in 1985 where I remain today. The firm developed into the Corporate Counsel Law Group LLP which allows me, as a partner of that firm, to work independently and closely with all my clients and provide them with highly personalized service. This innovative arrangement allows me to share costs and services with other lawyers and pass efficiencies on to my clients.

In addition to estate planning and trust administration, I assist clients with business litigation, contract disputes, and debt recovery, as well as agreements, commercial leases, and business formation. I serve as local defense counsel for a number of national and multinational firms.

If you are starting a family and need a living will and basic will, want to protect a legacy for your heirs through the creation of a revocable or irrevocable trust, or are establishing a business, it is important to work with a lawyer who has the experience to protect your interests and the sensitivity to understand your unique concerns. I have served clients in the Sacramento, California, area for over 30 years. If you would like to discuss representation or have another question about my firm, please call (916) 248-4465 or e-mail my office to arrange a consultation.
