Estate Planning at Your Service

California Estate Planning Services specializes in Estate Planning, Trust Litigation, Conservatorships, Probate, & Elder Law.

Every meaningful journey starts somewhere. Joshua Ramirez’s flourishing career as a trust litigator began when he was a young, inexperienced court attorney, just starting out and not even sure of where to stand.

“Fast forward to today, and I’ve opened my own firm,” he says, “and we regularly handle multi-million-dollar trust litigation and elder abuse trials.”  

California Estate Planning Services is an award-winning boutique law firm focused on Estate Planning, Trust Litigation, Conservatorships, Probate, and Elder Law.

“Being a boutique firm allows me to know each of my clients and their situation to provide individual guidance throughout the entire matter,” says Joshua.

Advising families and protecting their assets is a responsibility Joshua and his team take very seriously.

“I only practice in trust litigation, estate planning, and matters surrounding trusts. I spend time with each individual client to analyze their legal needs and prepare a sound legal strategy that results in a win. I have only lost one trial out of the last 100 or so cases.”

Joshua’s services aren’t limited to trust and estate planning, however.

“I am also in the unique position to advise my clients on tax consequences and planning. During law school, I quickly realized that I didn’t want to just know the law—I wanted to go above and beyond the law, so I obtained my Tax LLM. With this knowledge, I can save my clients time and money by providing both legal and tax advice.”  

Joshua’s success is the result of hard work, dedication, and years of unwavering support from his wife, Marissa. “She is my rock, and her support has been instrumental in my success,” he says.

“Balancing work and family life hasn’t always been easy, but I've learned to make time for both. My family's love and encouragement are a driving force that helps me achieve my goals.”

Pursuing the litigation field was not a decision Joshua took lightly.

“My greatest concern about becoming a litigator was questioning how I could balance maintaining my faith and passion for helping people while earning a living and winning trials,” he recalls.

“That concern was, as I now realize, unfounded. By focusing my practice on solving clients’ problems with compassion and honesty, everything else falls into place.”

“As I reflect on my journey so far, I am proud of the obstacles I've overcome, the successes I've achieved, and the relationships I've built along the way. I’m excited for what the future holds and look forward to continuing to grow both personally and professionally,” he says.
