We are new to the Sacramento area and had put off our estate planning for some time. We feel fortunate to have contacted John's office. After attending his seminar we immediately felt comfortable putting our needs in his hands. John took care of our trust efficiently, in a timely fashion, and answering all our questions along the way. We feel a weight has been lifted and we can get on with our day to day lives.

Mr. Goralka and his staff were very professional and efficient in helping me develop a revocable living trust. His experience and knowledge were worth the drive to Sacramento. I appreciated his sincerity in getting to know his clients, especially when he has so many.

We came to John Goralka's office to establish a living trust for our family. Having limited knowledge about how the process works, we attended a seminar where John gave ample information and even stayed to answer any questions we had. John cares about putting together the best possible plan for our family. John's staff was wonderful to work with from the moment we walked in. They happily answered all of our questions and made changes to our documents before we signed the final drafts. The entire process was flawless and very professional. I would recommend John Goralka to anyone.

John Goralka has been my attorney for at least 10 years and his advice on family estate planning has been just what I needed. He has also given me expert information on Real estate property.

My husband and I have wanted to set up a Living Trust for many years, but never did it because we didn’t have the slightest idea how to do that. Then my husband was critically injured in an auto accident and it became even more important to get the Living Trust in place. I found John Goralka’s site on the internet and was immediately impressed. My entire family attended his Estate Planning Seminar and we started the process shortly afterwards. We now have an iron-clad Family Revokable Trust in place and we can rest easy that our wishes will be carried out when the time comes.

I attended a Living Trust Seminar where John M. Goralko was the Speaker. I was so impressed with the way John was so knowledgeable, informative and easy to understand, that I had to make an appointment ASAP!! He helped complete my 2014 Taxes which was rather complicated and updated my Family Trust and Estate Planning which had not been done for 22 years. Whenever I thought to make changes, John would make suggestions and NEVER showed signs of impatience. He has not disappointed me in any way. He was always polite, extremely knowledgeable and his staff was also excellent to work with. I have recommended him to family and friends. I would highly recommend John and his staff to anyone who needs a great Lawyer.

After attending one of John's Trust seminars (free) I felt comfortable having the Goralka firm do this work for me. John is personable and easy to talk to, knowlegdeable and genuine. His staff is professional and always courteous and respectful.

I needed assistance in completing a claimants statement to recover funds as a beneficiary from my deceased Mother's annuity. I was on a very short deadline and needed immediate assistance. John was extremely helpful in addressing my questions on options, assisting on completing the form and providing a notarization. He made a phone call to the company to assure that a additional procedural question was handled correctly. He was efficient, professional and understanding. From my first call to his office, my inquiry and case was handled by his staff in a responsive and professional way. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for help on matters of trust, estate planning, wills and preserving assets.

I made my initial assessment of John Goralka Law Firm while watching a segment on Sac & Co. I was sufficiently impressed with his interview presentation that I made an appointment to attend a group seminar (presentation followed by questions from attendees) at Sun City, Roseville. In a limited amount of time, a very well informed, rapid-talking professional left little doubt in my mind that he was just the person to take care of our estate planning needs.
John and his excellent staff prepared a restatement of our trust and an IRA Inheritance trust as well as a will and advance health care directives and durable power of attorney-basically everything we needed to do to make sure our wishes are carried out as we planned.
After the paperwork is all signed, they make sure you know what to do with everything you have, and also an instruction manual for your successor trustee. John lets you know that he will be there to guide them as well. If there are no changes in your situation, he encourages you to come in at least every three years for a review in the event there are any changes in the estate/tax laws that would affect your trust.
We are very confident that we made an excellent choice in John Goralka Law Firm, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing an attorney with their expertise.
