About Me

Mrs. Singh founded her firm with the goal of assisting individuals and families in protecting their assets and providing comprehensive estate planning. She firmly believes that estate planning, previously utilized by only the wealthiest members of society, should be available to anyone looking to bring organization and security to their lives.


Mrs. Singh earned her undergraduate degree in Business Administration at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, and her Juris Doctorate degree from UC Hastings College of the Law.


Prior to opening her own firm, Mrs. Singh has held positions at both estate planning firms and large tax and accounting firms, including Pricewaterhouse Coopers, LLP. Her background in business and foundation in taxes and tax law gives her a distinct advantage in estate planning, because so much of estate planning involves tax law and management of finances.


The Law Offices of Sharmila K. Singh is an Estate Planning and Trust Administration law firm based in Fremont, California and serving the greater Bay Area and Central California.


Estate planning is an area of law designed to bring security and comfort to you and your loved ones.  Planning your estate can also help to preserve hard-earned family wealth. Our office is dedicated to relieving stress, eliminating uncertainty and protecting your family’s assets through creating an effective estate plan.


Many people avoid planning for incapacity and their passing due to discomfort with these sensitive issues. This is not responsible.  Without a plan, your loved ones will not know how to carry out your wishes, and they will have difficulty gaining access to your finances. Undeniably, thinking about incapacity or death is not easy, and our office is equipped to handle the matter with utmost sensitivity.


Our office will help you prepare a comprehensive estate plan, therefore giving the ones you love a sense of security. In the case of emergency or death, your loved ones will not be burdened with managing your affairs; they can devote their energy to caring for you or grieving for their loss.


Comprehensive Estate Planning


When you call or meet with us, we want you to feel comfortable discussing the important issues involved in estate planning that are essential for both you and your family. We want to arm you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your family’s future. Through the use of Revocable Living Trusts, Wills, Irrevocable Trusts, Financial Powers of Attorney, Advance Health Care Directives, Special Needs Trusts, Qualified Domestic Trusts (QDOTs) for non-citizen spouses, Family Limited Partnerships, Charitable Trusts, and Gifting Strategies, our firm helps families preserve their assets for future generations, minimize estate taxes, prepare for family emergencies, and avoid the expense and nightmare of probate.


 


Mrs. Singh is an active member of the Trusts & Estates sections of the California Bar Association and is a member of the Trusts & Estates Executive Committee of the Alameda County Bar Association.


In her free time, Mrs. Singh enjoys playing tennis, running, hiking, traveling, and spending time with her husband and the newest addition to the Singh family, her daughter born in January 2010.
