About Robert Padrick

Hello, I’m Bob. I became a Personal Family Lawyer because I’m passionate about helping families protect their assets to provide security for themselves today as well as for their children tomorrow.

My practice is focused on strategic planning for Family Nest-Egg Protection, pre-need Minor Child Guardianship, and, Medi-Cal Qualification. I also help local business owners make wise legal, insurance, financial and tax decisions. Whether you are married or single, a traditional family or a blended one, just starting out or looking back on a life well-lived, I can help you craft a plan that achieves your goals for years to come.

I graduated from California State University, Northridge in 1975 and San Fernando Valley College of Law in 1980. After graduation, I clerked at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, DC. Over the last 40+ years, I have represented both plaintiffs (predominantly) and defendants in civil (predominantly), criminal and appellate matters, and, have experience with Probate matters, including Estate Administrations and Conservatorships. I have also helped families create estate and business plans to protect and distribute their assets.

I greatly enjoy educating my community about their planning options and frequently give presentations on a wide variety of family wealth planning topics.

I am an alumnus of Order of DeMolay and Sigma Chi Fraternity, have been a Mason since 1977, and, have lived in the Bay Area since 1995. I regularly volunteer at Yosemite and, most importantly, am the proud father of a daughter, currently enrolled at Cal Poly Humboldt.

  • Asset-1@3x
    How we plan.

    We work with you throughout every life stage to map out the most likely scenarios for you and the people you love, planning for each as your life, the law, and your assets change over time.

  • Asset-1what-we-protect

    Our Life & Legacy Planning process ensures everything that matters most -- from your financial assets to your values, insights, stories and experience -- are captured and documented during your life and cared for over the generations to come.

  • Asset-1transparency
    What you see.

    Transparency in our process, and our fees … all of which are flat fees, agreed to in advance, based on your choices and with no surprises, ensuring we stay on the same side of the table - supporting you to make a lifetime of great decisions - every step of the way.

  • Asset-1DElivery
    How we deliver.

    Our systems help you get clear and organized, overcoming the exact issues that keep most estate plans from actually working when they are needed most. We help you leave your family with a gift of love, and not a mess.

    One-and-done estate plans focused only on money are a recipe for a big mess. We help you throughout every stage of life and be there for the people you love, when you can’t be.
