About me

Thank you for visiting my profile. I look forward to assisting you and your Family.


I am a Founding Partner with The Singh Law Firm, PC. I earned my undergraduate degree in Political Science and Criminology at the University of California, Irvine and my Juris Doctorate degree from Monterey College of Law.


The Singh Law Firm is the foremost choice for families to handle their Estate Planning needs. Our Estate Planning services include traditional estate planning, all related aspects of estate and gift taxes, trust construction, and becoming legal counsel to high net worth families dealing directly with their “Family Offices”. Our practice involves wealth enhancement and transfer for individuals and business succession planning for closely held businesses. Representing our clients often involves more than drafting but understanding the dynamics of their family, their businesses. Further, our practice involves coordinating corporate activities and ownership with estate and financial planning for management and principal stockholders if necessary.


We use our business and legal experience coupled with problem-solving abilities to design an Estate Plan that meets your objectives. Our approach to estate planning includes a thorough review of your lifetime and testamentary planning needs. Typically, a client will need comprehensive, goal-oriented analysis, as well as traditional estate planning and income-shifting vehicles. Where appropriate, we recommend and execute the most sophisticated techniques to reduce transfer and inheritance taxes. Applying the appropriate technique to the right client situation is a function of experience and judgment that we have developed over many years, by exclusive focusing our practice on all aspects of Estate Planning. Ourfirm is proactive. We recognize that you cannot be expected to know the most current estate-planning techniques and we do not hesitate to present you with ideas that may be helpful to further your goals.
