About Us

Orange County Estate Planning, Medi-Cal Planning, Asset Protection and Business Incorporation Law Firm

At the Asset Protection & Elder Law Center, we are committed to representing our clients with integrity, hard work, and highly personal legal counsel. We strive to make sure you understand your options by explaining complex legal matters in real English, not “Legalese.” Then, we work closely with you to design and implement a customized plan to address all of your concerns and help you achieve short and long-term goals. We represent individuals, families and businesses, including corporations and professional partnerships, both domestic and foreign. We have represented clients locally, nationwide and internationally, from Europe to Asia and beyond. Our practice includes all aspects of Estate Planning, Domestic and Offshore Asset Protection, Business Planning/Incorporation and Medi-Cal planning. We take pride in the fact that the bulk of our new business comes from the referrals of existing clients. We are also different from most Orange County law firms in that we do not operate under the traditional “hourly billing” model, where clients are billed in six-minute increments, or sent an invoice for each email, phone call, or fax that crosses our desk. Instead, we operate under a flat-fee model, which means you pay one price—no matter how many times you need to call or how many hours we invest in your case (litigation excluded). This reflects our belief that clients should have access to great representation in a way that is straightforward, equitable and affordable.
