About Me

I focus on working with professional clients, including dental and medical professionals, as well as business owners and entrepreneurs. My practice offers a series of services tailored to the needs of these clients with an emphasis on business formation, asset protection, contracts drafting, and negotiating buy-sell agreements.

Additionally, my estate-planning expertise is designed to help clients achieve their personal goals while minimizing the tax consequences and other issues associated with the implementation of their estate plans. I provide assistance with drafting and executing estate-planning documents, addressing specific legal and non-legal personal estate-related concerns.

In sum, I offer comprehensive guidance that covers more than just drafting and implementing client documents. Each client relationship requires a unique solution and I believe that customized business and estate plans geared towards these specific solutions are important. However, these documents are more than just a list of wishes. As such, I consider myself to be more than just a legal guide in this process and I pride myself on taking premium care of my clients’ needs.

  • Alexander C. Green

    Mr. Odgers is one of the sharpest up-and-coming Estate Planning and Business Law attorneys in San Diego and has begun to carve out a brilliant niche for himself, representing medical and dental professionals in complex practice transactions through the use of buy-sell agreements. He has a thorough understanding of the law and continues to grow his ability to connect well with clients and walk them through even the most complicated areas of asset protection, tax law, or entity formation. Mr. Odgers has been great to work with, and I both endorse and recommend him for his ability to provide high-value legal services across a broad spectrum of transactional practice areas.
