Caleb Lihn is a founder/partner of Taylor & Lihn, PLLC, practicing in the areas of elder law, special needs planning, estate planning, and probate litigation. After obtaining his bachelor's degree from Arizona State University, with a major in psychology, Caleb attended the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.  At McGeorge, Caleb was selected to write for and edit the school's international law journal, The Transnational Lawyer.  Upon graduating from McGeorge, Caleb returned to Arizona and became a successful litigation attorney at two major civil defense law firms in Phoenix.  After honing litigation and dispute resolution skills, Caleb joined a small minority of lawyers who continued their legal education and obtained an LL.M. degree, with an emphasis in estate planning and elder law. 

Caleb's emphasis in special needs planning began when his youngest daughter was diagnosed, in utero, with a rare and serious heart defect, necessitating three open heart surgeries within her first three years of life.  On the other end of the spectrum, Caleb previously had a close family member diagnosed with an illness requiring long-term care planning, thus triggering an interest and passion in elder law.  While navigating his family through the complex worlds of special needs planning and elder law, a passion to assist other individuals and families was born. 

Caleb is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys ("NAELA") and Elder Counsel.  Caleb also sits on the NAELA Guardianship Steering Committee and the Special Needs Law Steering Committee.  Caleb was recently named a 2015 Rising Star by Super Lawyers in the area of Elder Law.  Caleb is also a Judge Pro Tem for Maricopa County Superior Court.  Caleb has also earned Martindale Hubbell's highest peer review rating, AV Preeminent, for legal ability and ethics.

Amazing Experience!
Thank you to Caleb Lihn of Taylor & Lihn, and his amazing team - Kimberly, Michelle, Hannah and Catey. I first had the pleasure of meeting Caleb when he assisted me after my mom passed. His professional approach, expertise, respect and caring were quite obvious from the moment he sat down and spoke. I felt quite relaxed. The next time I spoke with Caleb was when he assisted me with my estate plan. This was something I had been planning on taking care of for years, but for whatever reason, I kept putting off. After initially meeting with Caleb, I came to realize that I wasn’t putting this off. I was just waiting for the right lawyer. I immediately knew he was perfect for me! It is quite different when you are looking at your own life in front of you and making decisions! Caleb did not try to “sell” me documents that were not necessary for me. He immediately explained exactly what I did and did not need. Caleb and his team reassured me every step of the way, and made sure I was comfortable before I signed off on all documents. Each and every one of you were a calming source throughout! Questions were answered before I even asked. Words cannot express how grateful I am for all the time and attention you took to make this happen. Thank you for your patience throughout! Caleb is a wealth of knowledge. Thank you for the amazing experience provided to me each and every time we spoke, whether it was in person, via ZOOM or a phone call. In addition, my documents were organized in a professional binder (as opposed to a two pocket paper folder). I was also provided with a thumb drive containing digital copies of my documents. To go one step further, shortly after my signing, I received a letter from Caleb thanking me for allowing him to represent me in the preparation of my estate plan. My experience was above and beyond what I imagined! I highly recommend Taylor & Lihn. Caleb and his team are the real deal! They will not disappoint!

Great Estate Planner
My husband and I were more than pleased with the service Caleb and his team afforded us, Not only was he thorough and extremely helpful but he spent all the time needed to explain every single decision we wanted to make.

Confidently recommend
Caleb is an exemplary professional, who I hired to draw up my Living Will, and to document my durable power of attorney and healthcare power of attorney. Caleb was straightforward, and patient in answering all of my questions, of which there were many. He was gracious in adapting to my busy pre-surgery schedule, and provided a concise product in an efficient and timely manner.

Caleb Lihn of Thies and Linh
Going into this process with a great deal of trepidation (do I know I can trust this person? do they know their stuff?) I can say that we had nothing but an extremely positive experience with Caleb and his firm. We redid our Family Trust, Powers of Attorney, Wills, and even a Special Needs Trust. All was completed in a professional, yet empathetic and personal fashion. Caleb (and staff) ensured that we were informed of all aspects of each document, in layman's terms, and were never rushed or felt as if they were condescending in any way. The turnaround time was extremely reasonable, and costs very reasonable. I can, without hesitation, recommend Caleb Lihn in the highest, most unqualified fashion, to anyone.

We hired Caleb to help us with a Trust. We had hired another Elder Care Attorney and soon realized that we were not comfortable with her advise. We had a conversation silt with Caleb and hire him to set up our Trust. We are very very happy with his advise and direction. I would highly recommend Caleb Lihn.

Highly recommend
I explained my situation and after a quick few questions he assessed and explained what can be done and helped me to position my thinking into the right perspective. Very nice to converse with an experienced and knowledgeable counsel. I am gathering additional information and without a doubt hire.

Caleb was very understanding about our situation and being I was out of state he took on our case without ever meeting him and got it dismissed! I would highly recommend him!

Estate Planning
I knew very little about estate planning going into my visit with Caleb Lihn. I received outstanding help and information from Caleb. It was clear that he was very knowledgeable and willing to educate me so I could make the best decision for my family.

Caleb Lihn - Estate Planning
Caleb was very detailed when putting together our estate plan. He took the time to explain to us the pros and cons of options we had in dealing with the needs of our children. We were very satisfied with the outcome and the cost. The end product makes us feel secure in knowing our children will be taken care of should anything happen to my husband or I.
