About Dinh

Learn Dinh’s areas of practice.

I come from a family steeped in public service – my father was a social worker and my sister was a legal aid attorney. My father instilled in us the responsibilities of giving back and taught us that knowledge was the key to success in life.

As a former legal aid attorney myself, I am intimately aware of the need for greater education about the legal process. As an estate planning and elder law attorney, my work impacts people in a personal and tangible ways. I love working with clients, connecting with them, and helping them and their families plan for life’s uncertainties.

Goldfarb & Luu is a worthy law firm, After being recommended to them and hiring them to do my trust work, I was startled to learn how truly fine and caring this law firm is. The law firm is extremely helpful. Any and all questions are answered promptly, honestly and earnestly. A high point is their taking the time to make sure one understands all aspects of any procedure. Neither “pushy” nor abrupt the firm always offers helpful suggestions. One feels as if the firm is “family” and truly interested in the welfare of each client. Their work is exemplary. Aside from being very personable, kind and helpful, Rebecca Goldfarb and Dinh Luu are excellent administrators. Each and every person with the Goldfarb and Luu Law Firm are wonderful people. The entire team reflects this spirit.

Excellent Estate Attorney
Dinh has been expertly guiding me through the resolution of my aunt's complex estate. Although I'm an attorney, I was completely out of my depth when it comes to navigating California estate and trust law. Dinh has been extremely responsive and attentive. Her expertise and guidance has been invaluable. I highly recommend her services.

After initially speaking with Dinh on the phone I felt that she completely understood my intentions and our discussions led to her creating the trust I wanted. In all respects the trust she created for me represented the estate plan I sought.

2017 Attorney Review
I sought out this firm to assist me in protecting my aunt's assets. Dinh secured for me the authorization to be trustee for her estate even with a great deal of opposition from two relatives. Dinh has been responsive to my questions, always promptly attentive to my emails and easy to get in touch with via phone. With this trustee position awarded to me, I have been able to protect my aunt's financial assets and pay for her continuing care.

Dinh Luu, Highly Skilled Estate Lawyer
Our experience with the law firm of Goldfarb & Luu in the preparation of our family trust was nothing but positive. We entered into the idea of creating a family trust with some trepidation over the complexity and enormity of the task. Our fears were put to rest upon meeting Rebecca and Dinh. Rebecca Goldfarb conducted the initial interview in our home, and our questions and concerns were addressed. She defined what was needed to establish our trust and told us what documents we needed to provide. The worksheets and checklists made the gathering of the information an easy task for us. Dinh Luu reviewed all the information we provided and crafted a family trust that met all of our needs. She recommended an umbrella liability policy for the protection of our assets, something we had not considered. Dinh was personable, professional, and efficient throughout the entire process. We were encouraged to call Dinh whenever we had questions or concerns; the firm's flat rate fee for their services covered everything we needed, and we were not charged every time we had a question. We appreciated that. We highly recommend Goldfarb and Luu to anyone needing estate planning. For us, working with Dinh in the final stages of our trust preparation was a pleasure, and we are secure in the knowledge that our family's estate plan has been solidly constructed.

Our Family Has Peace of Mind
My mother and I met first met Rebecca Goldfarb and Dinh Luu in 2011 through a workshop at Leeza’s Place. We were looking for an estate attorney we could trust and who would walk us through the process. Both Rebecca Goldfarb and Dinh Luu are extremely knowledgeable regarding estate planning and elder law. They were able to explain the law to us in terms that we understood. My mother passed in 2012, but her wishes live on because of the proactive estate planning provided by Goldfarb and Luu. Our family has peace of mind.

Goldfarb & Luu outshines larger law firms.
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Luu over the past 4 years and found her legal skills to be far greater than another high-powered, celebrity firm that I used in the past. She discovered additional ways to protect my family's assets that others had never found. I highly recommend Dinh at Goldfarb & Luu.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I strongly endorse this lawyer. I am biased because Dinh is my Trust attorney. She took a process that most people want to ignore and guided me through it with patience and grace. She asked the tough but necessary questions to get at what I and my family would need in its most difficult time. I know I am in great hands. To that end, I've referred clients to her and seen how she works up close. She's awesome! She's the person I want advocating for me and my family."
