Practice areas

Jennifer Jaynes is a certified specialist in estate planning, probate and trust law by the California Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California.  Jennifer offers clients a unique background in family law, trusts and estates law, and taxation.

 

Upon graduating from Golden Gate University School of Law with a JD and an LLM in taxation, Jaynes practiced in the area of family law with Winter & Ross in San Francisco, handling high-end financial divorces, including custody, child and spousal support, and property division and distribution.

 

Growing weary of the belligerence and litigiousness of divorce law, Jaynes decided her desire to help families would be better served in the area of trusts and estates law, where she focuses on preventing conflict. She is also able to use her taxation expertise to help her clients preserve their wealth through the estate-planning process. Jaynes holds a BA in psychology from San Diego State University and is admitted to the California Bar.

 

 

She formed the Law Office of Jennifer Jaynes in 2010 to provide clients with expert advice and the tools they need to make the best and most informed decisions for themselves and their families.

Highly recommended
I worked with Jennifer on my estate plan. She was careful in addressing my priorities and concerns and ultimately helped me implement a plan that I know will take great care of my family.

Highly Recommend for Comprehensive Estate Plan
My husband and I had Jennifer prepare our estate plan and trust. She is very thorough and thoughtful. Jennifer understood that my time is limited and she made the process seamless and required very little from me. I would highly recommend her for any of your estate planning needs.
