Protecting Your Rights: A Strong Advocate

Estate planning, Family Law and Probate matters can be sensitive and sometimes difficult to navigate. Finding counsel that you can easily communicate with and who can set your mind at ease by giving you the knowledge you need to protect you and your family is essential.

The Law Office of Patrick D. O’Neil strives to develop this effective relationship with all of our clients. This is exemplified by our estate planning practice where developing and maintaining an on-going relationship with our clients helps ensure their wishes and desires are secure for their future generations and that, when the time comes, control over their assets is exerted exactly as they intended it.

Choosing an Attorney

Just as bedside manner is important in the doctor-patient relationship, the attorney-client relationship can hinge on the ‘fit’ between counsel and client. The Law Office strives to create open and effective communication with all clients, providing insight and advice about how best to achieve their goals while demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of the unique issues in each case. This understanding allows our attorneys to anticipate the counterarguments of an opposing party or avoid the pitfalls of an inadequately prepared estate plan.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is an important step to preserving the value of your assets, making sure your loved ones are provided for, and ensuring you control the distribution of your estate after your death or, in the event of disability, the loss of capacity and control while still living. A properly drafted plan will avoid the very public court process of probate as well as alleviate stress for your surviving beneficiaries: a plan is prepared for them.

The Law Office provides concierge service to all clients: in addition to maintaining traditional business hours, appointments can be made for weekday evenings after 5 p.m. or during the week to accommodate various client-work schedules.

Family Law & Probate

The Law Office also handles complex and contentious litigation matters under the domestic legal umbrella. Family law and probate cases are typically handled as isolated cases; the Law Office accepts these on a case-by-case basis.

Serving Northern California

The Law Office handles litigation matters throughout Northern California, including Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, San Joaquin, Alameda, San Mateo and Contra Costa counties.
