Our highest priorities are to help our clients achieve their goals, resolve legal problems and successfully navigate today’s complex legal environments.

When you are dealing with complex estate planning concerns, probate matters, or trust controversies, it is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney by your side. Our law firm is committed to helping you achieve your legal goals by using the best possible legal solutions. We are a smaller law firm. There are several advantages to working with a smaller firm. These advantages include:

  • Close and personal client relationships
  • A friendly atmosphere
  • One-on-one relationships with attorneys, which makes for focused and detailed understanding of the details of your matter
  • Clients can rest assured that their case will not be handed off to another attorney within the firm
  • Attorneys within a smaller firm readily communicate with one another. This means that our clients can have the benefit of the experience of not just one attorney, but all of the members of our firm
  • The attorneys at our firm are accessible by email or telephone

At Horton, West & Bowman LLP, our experienced lawyers, in Oakland, California, provide advice and representation in all aspects of estate planning, trust and probate litigation.
