Approximately 2/3 of my law practice is comprised of estate planning, trust administration, and estate probate services:

  • I prepare estate planning documents for individuals with modest to large estates. I also prepare documents required in special cases such as for an incapacitated person. My clients recognize the importance of estate planning, appreciate my personalized service, and benefit from my attention to detail.
  • I handle Probates throughout California and I expedite the process when permitted by law. Clients select me due to my experience and efficiency rather than on cost considerations since in California probate fees are set by statute.
  • I provide legal counsel to trustees of trusts with asset sizes ranging from modest to more than $10 million. My clients include people who require occasional assistance and people that desire assistance with the entire process.

"I contacted Reece on the 1st of December with a general inquiry about what it would take to generate an estate plan for my husband and myself before we were set to travel outside the US later this month. Reece provided us a roadmap of information he needed to move quickly through this process and allowed us time and offered counsel to enable us to turn around the information to him in a matter of days. While our estate plan was not complicated by a multitude of assets to enumerate, there were a couple unusual elements requiring attention that Reece identified and was able to handle with ease. He was totally available to respond to questions we had along the way, explained the legalese with candor and good nature and instilled a great level of confidence in his ability to deliver on our request in the timeline we required. I cannot imagine having a more positive experience than we did working with Reece. He is highly articulate, able to quickly drill down to the key criteria we needed to address and of high importance to me, never hesitated to respond promptly to any question we had without my feeling that he was watching the clock. I highly recommend Reece as a resource for anyone seeking an Estate Planning Attorney. His vast knowledge of estate planning and kind demeanor make him an ideal partner in this kind of endeavor."
