About me

I grew up in Simi Valley, California, and my family is from the Central California coastal town of Carpinteria, California where I have lived since 2009. I attended Cal Lutheran University and the University of Oregon School of Law before founding Bartlett & Herrington in Carpinteria. My primary practice area includes estate planning, probate, and trust administration.

    Mr.Bartlett is a very knowledgeable trust and estate planning attorney in Carpinteria and Santa Barbara. I know Neal from an estate planning listserv we both frequent. His contributions on that listserv have been especially invaluable to me in my practice. I appreciate it and endorse him highly.
