We used Eric Gullotta and staff to revise our outdated trust documents. Not only was Eric personable and a pleasure to work with, but most importantly he is very knowledgeable about all the legal speak of trusts and wills. He took whatever time was necessary to answer all of our questions, and made many very good recommendations for our situation. We left feeling very confident that our new trust documents express our estate planning wishes in the best way possible. We can’t recommend Eric and his team highly enough.

Excellent estate planning
Eric does not speak in legalese, but instead, really tried to make things as clear and straightforward for me as possible when we were drawing up, my will. He is very good with follow-up also, answering questions that may come up after the signing. Super personable, and made a difficult endeavor less daunting. Highly recommend!

We highly recommend the Gullotta Law Group
Eric Gullotta and Tina Rodriguez helped my family with updates to our Trust. We wanted changes made in a timely manner and Eric and Tina delivered. Eric made us feel very comfortable throughout the process and took the time to answer any and all questions we had. We highly recommend the Gullotta Law Group and plan to continue using their services for our estate planning needs.

Terrific Estate Planner
The Gullota Law Group has been a real asset for my wife and I as we moved from the midwest, Chicago to Northern California most recently to Sonoma. We had our estate plan that was developed for us in Chicago and had to be changed due to our residency in California. We came to Eric Gullotta through our real estate agents and had him checked out through our long time attorney in Chicago and we decided to have Eric redo all of our trust documents. He was fantastic. He redid our trusts, changed our wills, created power of attorney documents and Healthcare Directive. The documents and the delivery were thorough, concise, complete and were communicated clearly. We had to change the documents this past year due to some changes we wanted to make. Eric, determined the best and most economical method to do just what we wanted. Throughout the process, we found Eric and his firm to be completely committed to assisting us, determining the best method, the most complete and competitive fee and treated us with respect and appreciation. I don't how much more I can say to recommend the Gullotta Law Group other than to say use them, you will be happy and satisfied.

Highly recommend
We have known Eric for many years. When it was time to create our trust, there was no question in our minds as to where we would go. We did not want a corporate group; we wanted someone who would take the time necessary to individualize our trust. Eric is extremely knowledgeable and can explain legalities and answer questions in layman's terms. He is quick witted and funny, but entirely professional and businesslike as well. We highly recommend Eric for making what could be a stressful time effortless.

the best experience ever !
We were recommended by our Realtor and met with Eric and Ashley at the beginning of the quarantine. We did all the preliminary work on line and when it was time to sign the documents we went to their office. We were very impressed with the precautions taken, following all the guidelines from the health authorities, and the easy way everything was explained to us. We highly recommend the Gullotta group for all legal works.

He’ll be our attorney for as long as he’ll have us.
Eric has been our attorney for a year now and has gone above and beyond our expectations when helping us with our wills, trusts, family issues, which are still ongoing and we couldn't be more grateful. We wanted an attorney who has our best interest at heart but is still respectful when dealing with others regarding our issues. He’s patient when we don't understand, he's not afraid to tell us what we don't want to hear and above all, he never makes you feel like we are wasting his time. When we’re feeling overwhelmed, he puts you at ease. He’ll be our attorney for as long as he’ll have us. Thank you Eric.
