Morrill Law is a San Francisco Bay Area-based boutique trust and estate litigation law firm. With offices in Walnut Creek, we are one of the largest trust and estate litigation firms in the East Bay. Our highly capable attorneys are smart, personable, and passionate about the work we do every day. And while you won’t find a team that’s more knowledgeable about the details of the law and court proceedings, our ultimate goal is really about the bigger picture: protecting families and their legacies.

Our attorneys are known for their strengths and experience in trust and estate litigation, conservatorships, and financial elder abuse. We also counsel clients in general business and real estate matters that are often related to trust and estate issues.

We earn the trust of our clients by getting results and respecting their investment in our services. We work hard to get it right—the first time. We are buttoned up—punctual, prepared, and professional—every time. But you also need to know that we’re casual, gregarious people who may just change your mind about what lawyers are like. Since the work we do often involves families and individuals who are struggling with highly charged, emotional issues, we want our clients to know that we have their backs…and feel confident that they have made the right choice in Morrill Law.
