WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

  • Kris F.
    Sound, Solid Counsel.
        

    Korn Law Group provided sage counsel to my mother in setting up her will and trust. Later, I was forced to defend her estate as Trustee. I felt very fortunate to have the expertise of Kathryn Korn as well as the outstanding guidance and skillful representation of Cara Lankford. Ms. Lankford took care to ensure I understood the various options available but set realistic expectations. She provided sound, solid counsel throughout the process which gave me peace of mind and yielded a positive outcome! I have since recommended Korn Law Group to others and will continue to do so. They have the legal experience to get the job done right and are a pleasure to work with!

  • Joan S. & Hugh Q.
    Highly Competent.
        

    Acting as co-trustees of a trust, we sought the assistance of Korn Law Group to settle a complicated estate in San Francisco that had dragged on for 5 years due to numerous conflicts and difficulties. Their team of attorneys stepped in and satisfactorily completed the trust administration within a 4 month period.  Kathryn Korn and Cara Lankford demonstrated a high level of professional competence, prepared us for the realities that could confront us, and kept us well informed throughout the process. This was especially helpful given one of us was located in a different country. We were glad to have Korn Law Group represent us in California.

  • Mike V.
    Patient & Experienced.
        

    Kathryn's patient counsel guided my wife and I through the initially overwhelming estate planning process.  Later, I relied on the Korn Law Group to assist me with the trust administration process after the passing of my wife.  During this time the Korn Law Group intervened in an impasse involving my wife’s estate, a doctor/hospital, and an insurance company; Cara was able to convince all parties to cooperate, avoiding a complicated legal battle. For over 15 years, I have relied on the Korn Law Group for its expertise in both estate planning and litigation matters. Korn Law Group is a savvy, experienced legal firm that I implicitly trust.

  • Beth S.
    Personal & Reliable.
        

    The Korn Law Group was instrumental in assisting my Mother with her estate plan, and was thankfully there seven years later when she needed a Special Needs Trust. The firm guided us through the Medi-Cal application process when my Mother entered a skilled nursing facility for an extended stay. I felt like KLG had our backs at every turn and helped our family get through a very trying time not only from a professional, legal standpoint, but also with caring and personal attention.
