I have litigated Will contests in many Northern California Counties, Trust contracts, Elder Abuse Claims. I have surcharged Trustees for breach of their fiduciary duties, undue influence, etc.

Since the Sterling Law Group litigates so many estates in probate or trust, we prepare our Estate Planning documents to the highest standards to ensure that they will survive judicial scrutiny. I have personally prepared hundreds Complete Estate Plans with Inter Vivos Trusts, Pour over wills, Healthcare Directives, Durable Powers of Attorney (immediate and springing), HIPAA Directives.

Trust Advisors, and administration. Some of these trusts have been QDOT Trusts (where one of the creators/Settlors of the trust in not a US citizen), Asset protection trust, Life Insurance Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, etc. We are Members of the WealthCounsel and use their trust system as well as the CEB trust and estate systems.

Our family higher the Sterling Law Group to handle a situation after a difficult time in our life. They handled all Court situations professionally. When it came to a conservatorship issue, we hired them again. The Sterling Law Group is a team of attorneys that you can trust to get things done professionally. We hired the right attorneys the first time with no regrets!

Highly recommend him for any legal need.
I was being charged with a possible felony. He finalized my case with an infraction and a small fine. He was very informative and kept me up to date with all the proceedings. Really great attorney, and I would DEFINATELY recommend him to everyone I know.
