John L. Wong advises individuals and business owners on all aspects of estate planning. John also represents trustees, executors, administrators, beneficiaries, heirs, guardians and conservators in all matters related to probate, trusts and conservatorships.

In litigation, he believes in zealously advocating for his clients in a fashion that allows for a quick and favorable result, but with the experience to take matters to trial.

John has advised and prepared estate plans for clients that range from young professionals beginning their career and starting a family, to mulit-millionaire business owners that seek business succession planning for the next generation.
