Offering a Personalized Approach

At our Pasadena, California, law firm Kristof & Kristof, we take a personalized approach to navigating elder law issues. Every situation is unique and demands the focused attention of one of our skilled attorneys. Our knowledgeable team has experience handling cases that involve estate, trust and tax planning; will contests; protection from elder abuse; guardianships and conservatorships; probate and trust administration; fiduciary accountings; and court appointments.

Knowing how complicated many of these issues can be, our attorneys start with a willingness to explain the options available. Without proper planning, many elder law matters can become unmanageable. We collaborate with those we represent to understand their goals and expectations. Whether we are walking a grieving family through the probate process or drawing up documents for end-of-life matters, our law firm provides thorough and compassionate representation.
