Summary

Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust Administration and Probate – Irvine & Long Beach Offices

I graduated from Stanford University and the University of California, Hastings College of Law. After serving as an Agent in Counter-Intelligence in the United States Army, I practiced law as a Deputy District Attorney and then with a major Los Angeles law firm. I taught estate tax planning as an adjunct professor at Long Beach State for ten years. I continue to teach informative and timely seminars on estate and gift taxation, and provide lectures on tax savings throughout Southern California. I have been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the Reader’s Digest, the American Bar Association Journal, the Orange County Apartment Magazine, and the Orange County Lawyer.

I am a Trust Doctor, not a medical doctor. I fix trusts! Some trusts are broken, some are antiquated, and some need to be created. I help families avoid creditors and predators. I also assist families to reduce or eliminate the voluntary death tax. I show families how to keep their family money in their bloodline for generation after generation by avoiding the in-laws that often become the “outlaws”. How would you feel if your children or your grandchildren did not receive their inheritance?

I am a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust Administration and Probate. I have over 45 years of experience and have drafted over 7,000 estate plans. My offices continue to serve the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas and are conveniently located in Irvine and Long Beach, California. Please call (949) 756-0684 for your complimentary consultation today.
