About our San Francisco, CA office

Since 1997, Creighton Law Offices, with offices in San Francisco and San Mateo, California, has provided high quality estate planning, probate, and trust law services to clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We make the effort to clearly understand each client's specific estate planning needs and objectives and we draft documents for them that are tailored specifically to those needs and objectives. We provide exemplary trust administration services upon a client's death or incapacity, and streamline the process of passing property to the next generation. Not only do we stay up-to-date on the laws affecting estate planning, trusts, and probate matters, we also focus our efforts on proper client relations. All of us at Creighton Law Offices have been trained to use the most up-to-date technology to deliver products and services to our clients whose quality matches-and often exceeds-that of much larger firms-and at a lower cost. Thus we can offer potential clients the same resources as many large firms, without sacrificing the personalized focus and attention that comes with a modest-sized staff.

      Mr. Creighton met with us once for about an hour or so, asking us questions about our intent. He then asked us for a retainer, which was reasonable. He then gave us 200 pages of documents to look through, obviously a template and not specific to anything we spoke about. He presented us with a bill for thousands of dollars. He did not take our needs into consideration, he did not give us useful documents. Rather than wasting additional money, we are looking into another attorney
