About me

Since 1989, Stephen B. Clemmer has been providing legal services in Estate Planning, Business Law and Real Estate.  With regard to estate planning, from modest to the larger estates, Mr. Clemmer provides excellent advice and counsel, encompassing such issues as Estate Tax Savings Techniques, planning for non-citizen spouses, and unique and special circumstances including special needs trusts.   His business law practice includes the formation of corporations, limited liability companies and partnerships, drafting and reviewing all forms of contracts including buy-sell agreements.  His real estate practice focuses on the drafting and review of leases and real estate partnerships and other real property agreements.


A native of Long Beach, California, Stephen graduated Cum Laude from California State University at Long Beach in 1970 with degrees in French and German and obtained his Juris Doctorate degree with honors from Whittier Law School in 1984 where he served on Law Review.  While with the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, D.C., he coordinated discovery on the Commission’s successful effort to disallow the merger between Warner Communications Inc. and PolyGram among other antitrust matters. Besides the practice of law, Stephen taught English as a Second Language both in Tunisia while in the Peace Corps and in Europe as well as administered numerous private schools for English as a Second Language across the United States.  Stephen is a proud parent of a Golden Bear--his son studying at the University of California, Berkeley--Go Bears!
