About Us

Strategic Wealth Legal Advisors was first established in Old Sacramento in 1997 as a new estate planning law firm in the Sacramento area. Although the name has changed over the years, the principals established early on have remained thorough counseling to meet the individual goals. Not long after the establishment of the firm, a formal updating system was implemented to address the changing needs of our clients. This was a new approach to providing clients with outstanding services not offered in traditional estate planning firms. Attorneys of the firm are committed to providing the most cutting- edge strategies needed to solve the wealth planning goals of our clients.
