Northridge Estate Planning Attorney Committed to Ensuring Clients’ Wishes Are Fulfilled in California

He has nearly four decades’ worth of experience in helping clients in all facets of creating an estate planning strategy, including the drafting of a last will and testament, executing an advance health care directive and protecting your assets through innovative trust strategies designed to reduce the future financial and emotional burden on your loved ones.
