About Me

Thank you for visiting my profile and I look forward to assisting you and your Family.


I am a Founding Partner with The Singh Law Firm, PC. I earned my undergraduate degree in Political Science and Criminology at the University of California, Irvine and my Juris Doctorate degree from Monterey College of Law.


I possess broad and substantial experience in nearly every area of Estate Planning, Wills & Trusts and Estate Tax Planning. I have become an irreplaceable asset to the individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses and large corporations we represent. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have represented so many clients and I look forward to helping my existing clients and meeting and helping many new clients in the months and years to come.


I am regularly invited to seminars designed to educate attorneys, financial planners, individuals, and familys on Estate Planning, Estate Tax Planning and Wills & Trusts. I am recognized as a leader in the Estate Planning legal community. I have won many awards in Estate Planning, including but not limited to: The Clients' Choice Award from AVVO based on my experience, industry recognition, professionalism, and client feedback.


No Estate is too small or too large for my Team and I to handle.


Estate Planning / Wills & Trusts / Estate Tax Planning Practice


My Estate Planning / Estate Tax Planning knowledge and experience has helped my clients seamlessly transition wealth from one generation to the next in the most tax efficient manner. Further, my expert use of Estate Planning has aided my clients to protect their assets from creditors (Asset Protection). I also have vast experience in setting up basic estate plans, establishing: Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts (ILITs), Dynasty Trusts, Grantor Retained Income Trusts (GRITs), Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts (GRATs), Grantor Retained Unitrusts (GRUTs), Qualified Personal Residence Trusts (QPRTs), Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs), and Nongrantor Charitable Lead Annuity Trusts.


History


Prior to founding my Firm, I held positions at the San Francisco County District Attorney's (under California Attorney General Kamala Harris), Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, Monterey County District Attorney's Office, Law Firms practicing Personal Injury, Business Litigation, Criminal Defense, and Construction Litigation. Along with my ample legal background, and being a small business owner, I also run a Family Owned Farming Company based out of Fresno, California. This "real world" experience, combined with my legal background, makes me a valuable advisor to my clients, who appreciate both a pragmatic and practical approach to their complex and frequently unique legal issues.


Personal


In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, exercising, skiing, fishing, traveling to new locations, and my yearly trip to Hawaii and Disneyland with my wife and kids. I also enjoy home improvement projects, watching movies, reading as much of anything as I can, and spending time with family and friends.
