    Helpfulness in action.

    John and his staff have been very helpful to me in putting together my Trust. If I have any questions or need help with anything they are there to help. Very nice firm and I really recommend him to all.

    Fabulous Estate Planning Lawyer - Knowledgeable, Helpful, Thorough

    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.

    2014 Taxes/ Family Trust & Estate Planning

    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.

    recovering funds from an annuity

    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.

    Destress and quit procrastinating. Let John do it!!

    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.

    Thorough and Perceptive

    John prepared an IRA Inheritance Trust for us, along with updating our Living Trust, Wills, and other related documents. His expertise is cutting edge, and we highly recommend attendance at his seminars. What was particularly important to us is that he addressed all of our questions and perceived what we would need to be comfortable in making and implementing the decisions involved in executing these documents. He has an excellent professional and support staff who are all a pleasure to work with.

    estate planning

    From the onset, my family's experience with the Goralka Law Firm was very positive. John Goralka provided specific, valuable counsel for estate planning and complex estate law issues. John and his colleague, Alyssa Nguyen, were knowledgeable, professional, personable, and responsive to our questions and concerns. We will definitely return to the Goralka Law Firm for future estate planning. Highly recommended!
