In our practice we advise clients on all aspects of estate planning, with a focus on practical planning and administration. Our work primarily consists of preparing estate plans (wills, trusts, and ancillary documents), administering trusts, and probating estates.
We pride ourselves on providing practical and accessible counsel for Bay Area individuals and families. The clients we serve have a range of needs, from simple estate plans to more complex planning for larger estates, distinct family circumstances, and complicated distributions.
I am honored to have been selected by my peers as one of Northern California’s “Rising Stars” for 2018, 2019, and 2020, a distinction held by only 2.5% of attorneys. I am also honored to be on the short list of trusted attorneys for many financial advisors, CPAs, and real estate agents throughout the Bay Area.
I am a Bay Area native and love living in Oakland. I take every opportunity to travel and explore the world, but love calling the Oakland Hills home. When I’m not working or traveling, you’re likely to find me exploring local restaurants with my wife Shayla, playing with my son Reuben, or lamenting the recent Cal football season.
