Firm Profile

Welcome to the Law Office of Jean C. Gifford. Thanks for taking the time to visit my Web Page.

I graduated from Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco in December, 1989, in the top quarter of my class, and have been a member of the California State Bar since August 1990. At my law school graduation, one of our professors advised us to "Do Well...and Do Good." I have tried to follow that advice by structuring my practice in a "win-win" manner.

I have assisted over 6000 clients in creating Revocable Living Trusts, both as an associate in a Sacramento law firm and as a sole practitioner since 1992. I offer a free consultation in the client’s home or office within a 45-minute drive from my office in Davis, California. It may also be possible to create your Trust by telephone consultation.

My practice is based on a "win-win" philosophy of providing excellent legal services in the field of Estate Planning for a reasonable fee. By meeting with most of my clients in their homes, I save the expense of maintaining a series of offices over a wide geographical area, an expense I would only have to pass on in higher fees. I believe in helping clients understand as much as they wish about the Living Trust and how to use it to the best advantage.

The law is a second career for me. Before attending law school, I served in the U.S. Navy and Navy Reserve for a total of twenty-three years, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer. I am a native of Memphis, Tennessee, have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and the Orient, and I am very grateful for the many things I learned from my various experiences and from my wonderful parents, Charley (now deceased) and Betty Gifford..

If you need assistance with Estate Planning for yourself or for a close relative, contact me for an appointment by e-mail or call me at (530) 759-9659.

I look forward to assisting you.
