“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”

GEORGE V. HARTMANN, Attorney & Counselor – Stanford Lawyer
Supporting businesses and individuals throughout California
Whether you are trying to form or operate a business in California or require assistance with a will, trust or sophisticated estate plan, or you are trying to solve complex tax, real estate, estate planning and business problems in the most simple, cost-effective way, having an experienced, client-centered lawyer can make a difference. I have more than 43 years of legal experience, giving me a broad scope of knowledge and proficiency in tax matters, simple and complex estate planning, developing effective business strategies for succession and expansion, dealing with the needs of entrepreneurs and various water and reclamation law issues.
I am in the business of protecting and serving my clients and finding the simplest, most cost-effective solutions for the most complex problems. I have personally worked with many California entrepreneurs to help them draft and implement successful business strategies including succession plans, acquisitions, dispositions, and financing. I am also experienced in drafting and implementing all levels of estate plans – from simple to complex, with a special emphasis on business owners and those in agriculture. For my professionalism and ethics, I have earned an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, the highest recognition possible in the legal industry. This rating is based on reviews from my fellow attorneys.
