Exceptional Service
I've worked with Eric to complete our will, and more recently to create our marital trust. He's an exceptional attorney. He and his staff are very organized, with great follow-up on pending items that we needed to provide. He made the process simple and easy to understand. Eric is also very civic minded, and contributes his time and resources to a number of community organizations. I'd highly recommend him.

A Very Pleased Client
I went to Mr. Rudolph because I did not feel that I was getting competent legal advice from my current lawyer. I could not be more satisfied with this decision. Mr. Rudolph and his staff have provided me with 5-star service and competent legal advice. He listens carefully and takes whatever time is necessary to explain all of your options. I feel that my estate planning is in better shape than ever. I have referred several of my friends to Mr. Rudolph and they have all shared their positive experiences with me.

Estate Planning
Eric was a pleasure to work with. He set-up my trust and end of life documents, while walking me through the entire process. He made a complicated, unpleasant matter, easy to get through. I always refer anyone I know to Eric for estate planning, big or small.

Estate Planning
Eric did a wonderful job of going through various estate planning options with me and we selected the most appropriate mechanism for my situation. He was great in handling a sensitive subject and I feel a great sense of relief that it is done and that if anything happens to me my heirs will be protected.

Highly Recommend For Estate Planning & Trusts
Hired Mr. Rudolph to give me advice and revise estate & trust documents. He was clear on costs and pricing, something that was problematic with my prior attorney. He did a sit down discussion, heard my concerns, and offered some suggestions for changes and improvements. Some based on my changed circumstances. He integrated these suggestions in the new trust, durable power of attorney and other documents. Communication was excellent, especially about process. Clear instructions on what I would need to attend to providing new documents to financial institutions and physician. His staff was friendly, efficient, and communicated promptly.

Nasty, rude man with an unprofessional, incompetent assistant
Do not use this man. He prepared documents for me, which I paid thousands for, and when I called a few years later to inquire about costs to update them, his incompetent assistant told him I was asking him to perform these services for free, which was not true. She flatly refused repeatedly to quote me a price for the VERY simple services I was requesting and insisted I needed to come in and pay for an hour of the lawyer's time in order to find out how much it would cost for me to literally just change one name on a document. Ludicrous way to do business. He then sent a nasty, vitriolic, factually inaccurate letter "firing" me as a client, accusing me of wanting free services, which is a lie. The California Bar advised me to lodge a complaint. Take your business elsewhere. This was the worst experience, most unprofessional experience I've ever had with a law firm. Awful.
