Estate And Probate Services Since 1997
Our practice was founded to help California families through some of life’s most important, and often overwhelming decisions.
Attorney Lisa MacCarley is well-versed in all aspects of the California probate code: probate, guardianships, conservatorships and estate planning. She also has extensive experience working with clients through the elder law issues they or their loved ones face, and is talented at mediation in the face of conflict.
Lisa attended Loyola Law School and was admitted to practice law in California in 1993. A former New York state resident, she attended State University of New York College (SUNY), Cortland.
After visiting Los Angeles to thaw out after four long years in the arctic tundra of upstate New York, Lisa fell in love with the City of Angels and has lived here ever since. Lisa MacCarley worked as a law clerk in 1990, and by 1997 had established her practice in Glendale as an estate and probate lawyer. Read more about her background below.
Committed To Helping Our Clients
The most satisfying part of practicing law is our ability to help a range of clients with their most personal and important estate, probate and elder law issues. We take a proactive approach to estate planning, with the goal of educating families on the most beneficial solutions for their needs.
We also firmly believe that the best estate plans do more than protect your assets. They should also prepare you and your family for the possibility of incapacitaty and the need for long-term care in the final years of your life.
Lisa planned on working in the area of elder law, conservatorships, and probate from the day she started law school.
She correctly anticipated that there would be a growing need for legal services by and for our aging population in California.
Lisa’s focus will be to provide cost-effective resolutions to complex and sometimes overwhelming problems.
After more than 25 years of helping individuals and families throughout Southern California, Lisa is very experienced with dealing with the challenges of aging, adult incompetency, and loss.
