About Brooks

Learn Brooks’s areas of practice.

I specialize in estate and trust planning, with an emphasis on tax planning for strategic wealth transfers. In addition, I provide legal and tax advice to owners of small businesses and rental properties who would benefit for transferrring their interests into limited liability business entities in a manner that will protect their personal assets and avoid triggering an increase in their property taxes. I take great personal satisfaction from earning the trust of each and every one of my clients.

Highly Recommended
After interviewing several attorneys, we hired Brooks Paley to do our estate planning. In particular, we chose Brooks because he did a better job of explaining complicated tax issues to us in a way that we could understand easily. He did an excellent job of planning for the next generation of our family, and I highly recommend Brooks to anyone looking for an estate and tax planning attorney in the Los Angeles area.

Exceptional attorney!
Brooks Paley, J.D., LL.M. is a very knowledgeable and caring trust and estate planning attorney. He took the time to make sure that I understood my estate plan and that it fit my family's needs. And he found a way to save my children a considerable amount of tax on the property that they will inherit from my estate. I highly recommend Brooks when you need a trust and estate attorney.
