Valerie Pasion is an attorney specializing in Estate Planning. She currently lives in Orange County with her husband (and high school sweetheart) and their four children.

Attorney Pasion always knew she wanted to enter the legal profession for the purpose of helping people. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of California, Irvine, with a Bachelors Degree in Criminology, Law and Society in 2005. Then in 2009, she received her Juris Doctor Degree from the UCLA School of Law with an additional specialty in Critical Race Studies. During law school, she provided pro-bono legal services as a law clerk for multiple non-profit organizations, advocating for various underserved communities in various areas of law.

Fresh out of law school, Attorney Pasion worked for a mid-sized law firm in Irvine. After a few years, she realized she wanted to do something more impactful for those she saw in need. She joined a faith-based non-profit and worked for their Family and Legal Ministry. There she was able to provide free legal counseling and estate planning services for members in the surrounding low-income community. In 2019, she became a part of The Asset Protection and Elder Law Center team. Here her values align with the firm’s client focused model and she is able to use her passion for helping others by compassionately aiding individuals and families with their Estate Planning needs.

Valerie is THE BEST!
We were recommended to Valerie by a Financial Planner friend who told us they have an amazing attorney to help us with our Estate Planning. Valerie and her team were excellent at communicating and ensuring that we had every document in place and every question answered up front. She invested her time teaching us about all the different aspects of our estate planning options and my wife and I thoroughly appreciated the learned wisdom. Valerie is absolutely knowledgeable, kind, caring, generous, and trust-worthy. She even showed up to the signing of our Trust Documents with the notary so she can explain every document before we signed it! I will be recommending many friends, families, and clients to her for the excellent job she will do for them as she has earned herself very satisfied friends and clients for life!

Concierge Service with a Personal Touch!
My wife and I have had the worst experiences with Estate Planning attorneys, up until we found Valerie. We expressed our dissatisfaction with the several experiences that we had in the past at length with her. After spending quite a bit of time talking, it became clear that Valerie really was truly interested in helping us understand what we needed to do and honestly wanted to assist us in achieving that goal. Still with some reservation, we proceeded slowly at first. We are glad to report that, not only did Valerie and her terrific team perform in every aspect of our negotiations, they did so with exceptional attention to our concerns, answering our every question, which made the process very comfortable and stress-free. Her and her team's dedication and commitment to us and our situation was evident at every stage, which is rare these days. We can, and do, recommend and refer to her whenever the opportunity arises. Thank you Valerie for everything you have done for us!

Valerie Le Pasion is not only top notch attorney, but top notch person
Valerie assisted us in creating a family trust for our family. It was clear she doesn't see this as just a job but as true partnerships as it showed in her thorough care and explanations as we asked our questions. She also made it clear for us to understand and we heartily recommend her services and law firm for any estate planning needs.

Professional, prompt, and AMAZING!
Valerie has been an immense help guiding me and my husband through the process of creating a plan for our children and assets in case anything were to happen to us. As A parent herself, she understood our worries and concerns. She patiently addressed all of them and even others that we didn’t even think of! She helped us understand the many options available to us and provided us with a wealth of information. She and her team provided us with services and documents to help streamline the process to make it simple and stress-free. I felt that she genuinely cared for the well being of my children’s futures in addition to our wishes. Her dedication to ensure we were taken care of is very appreciated!

GREAT Experience! Highly recommended!!
Valerie was extremely helpful as she guided us through our Trust document process. Always very open, honest, and clear. The entire experience was pleasant and easy to understand. If we had any questions she made sure to answer them in a concise manner, while also encouraging us to ask any more that we had. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends. Thank you!

Compassionate and outstanding legal services
We retained Valerie for help with our estate and for her expertise in advising clients on wills, trusts and general estate planning. She was fantastic and was so patient explaining what legal risks and benefits accompanied each of their choices. Her explanations were comprehensive and spot on! She was able to break down very complex topics (even drawing several diagrams) for my parents. She and her partner would follow up to make sure we filed the right paperwork and received all documents. When all the documents were finalized, Valerie and her team painstakingly went through all our questions and were a pleasure to work with. Not only is she an amazing attorney that knows the law well, she truly cares about each of her clients and we felt she had our best interests in mind. We’ve recommended her services to friends and they’ve also shared the same sentiment - everyone has glowing reviews about working with her!

Excellent Service
Valerie was very precise in making sure that my grandmother’s trust was exactly what she wanted. She took every phone call and every need of my grandmother in consideration and answered every question we had. The fact that Valerie was available every and anytime we needed her is invaluable. When we went to meet with her, she put our nerves and worries behind us because she made sure that we were taken care of. I can’t express how grateful we are for all of Valerie’s hard work. My grandma can now breathe and know that when her time comes that everything she wanted will be followed through and protected. Thank you Valerie for making my grandma happy and it’s one less thing she will worry about.

Super pleasant experience working with Valerie
My wife and I hired Valerie to prepare a living trust for us. She was prompt, detail-oriented, and fast. This was our first experience working with a lawyer. We would absolutely recommend Valerie's services to anyone needing legal aid in estate planning. We will certainly retain her services again, if ever the need arises.
