Thank you Trent!
I couldn't be happier I called Trent and Itzel to help me with my estate planning. They both were very responsive and helped put my mind at ease. I was nervous about the process because I didn't quite understand how it all worked but Trent was patient and took the time to thoroughly answer all of my questions, and I had a lot! Trent is a local, family man and that came across when we spoke. I have a 6 and 8 year old and I can sleep easier knowing their future is protected. I knew I was in good hands after our first meeting. I would absolutely recommend Trent for estate planning and I have a feeling he will be in my families lives for many years to come.

Setting Up A Living Trust
I am a retired CPA looking to set up a living trust to bypass probate which would be very costly and time consuming. I wanted an attorney who specialized in trust and estate planning. So I talked to several attorneys before selecting Trent. He came across as a very personable, honest, straight forward and knowledgeable attorney. He worked very professionally, expeditiously and gave valuable advice. He quoted me a fee which is very reasonable, consider his package includes funding of my properties (transferring titles into the trust) which many trust attorneys don’t do or charge extra. I am very happy with his service and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Solid attorney
Trent is a great family law attorney. He was very patient with us and explained all the details of our family trust and its benefits. He was thoughtful, fair and his fees are reasonable. I would recommend him to any party needing a family law attorney.

Both thoroughly knowledgeable and very kind.
Trent did our estate planning and wills. Everything was done efficiently. His expertise showed in the questions leading up to the document preparation. We knew exactly how things would transpire when we die. We were able to make provisions for things we didn't realize were issues.

A gem of a lawyer!
I originally contacted an avvo 10 rated lawyer and he was horrible! Tried another local OC lawyer and I'm glad I gave a less rated lawyer a call! Trent is very patient, gives a complementary meeting to see if you and he can work together, not the cheapest but fair (unlike the 10 rated lawyer who was over priced for creating a single estate plan). I'm looking forward in working with him! I will hire him.

Knowledgable, very helpful & encouraging!
I reached out to Trent for advice on my small business structure. I'm currently a Sole Proprietor and had some questions about making the switch to an LLC. I emailed his office over a weekend and was pleasantly surprised to receive an email back from him directly to set up a time to meet- I assumed I would be put through to an administrative assistant to work out scheduling. That demonstrated right away his commitment to his clients. Trent was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He answered all of my questions and even brought up a few important legal issues that I hadn't thought of, but pertained to my business. He was super approachable and easy to talk to. Reaching out to a lawyer to talk business can be intimidating for someone who is new to entrepreneurship! But Trent made me feel very comfortable. One last thing that stuck was how encouraging he was of my business and success I have had since inception. He was really interested in what it was I am doing and seemed to honestly just be really happy for me! (Even though I just met him!) Great guy. I highly recommend Trent and his services.

Great Lawyer for Small Business and Family Law
I can't speak more highly of Trent Marcus. He has provided me excellent legal services in the areas of small business and family law. He has helped me with the creation of small businesses and a living trust. Trent has always demonstrated strong character, responsiveness and great legal advice. Trent has provided me such great service that I've recommended several of my friends and family to him. I can't recommend him highly enough. Kevin.

Thoughtful, efficient, and professional
Mr. Marcus was referred to me by a friend at church...and we were not disappointed. His office is very warm and inviting. He answered all of our questions and helped us understand the estate planning process in simple terms. He worked very quickly and we were very happy with the entire process. I highly recommend Mr. Marcus.

Probate Attorney | Jan 20
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Last year, I had the pleasure of working with Trent on a multi-state probate matter. Trent handled the California case, while I took care of things in Oklahoma. Trent is an extremely knowledgeable attorney. This particular estate was very complex, and I was impressed with how Trent navigated it. What's more, the client remarked to me on several occasions how personable Trent was - he really made the client feel at ease during what was a difficult time in her life. I would not hesitate to recommend Trent to anyone in California who needs assistance with probate and estate matters, and if the opportunity arises, I will definitely refer clients to him."
