A Different Kind of Law Firm

Sapphire Law Group is a different kind of law firm.  Attention has been given to every detail to ensure that each client has an exceptional experience by utilizing the most advanced technology, security and document drafting software available.  We understand that changes in the economy, technology and competition demand efficiency and we are prepared to meet that challenge.  One that eliminates unnecessary overhead, leverages technology and never compromises personal client service.

In addition to being the stone of wisdom and protection, which are two of our guiding principles, Sapphire Law Group’s name is inspired by the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, where our founder grew up.  We are committed to serving our communities that are our foundation and anchors, both personally and professionally. Our offices serve the Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Granite Bay communities, as well as the Truckee and North Tahoe communities.

We cannot wait to share our new vision for a different kind of law firm with you and to make you a valued client for years to come.

Our Areas of Practice

ESTATE PLANNING

We believe that quality estate planning should be accessible to everyone, and that everyone can and should have an estate plan. By leveraging the latest technology, we provide clients with quality estate plans on a fixed-fee basis that fits within a budget that you can control, and make the experience both custom as well as exceptionally convenient.

TRUST ADMINISTRATION

Trust administration is the process that an individual or family will go through when a loved one passes away with a trust in place. The trustee is tasked with administering the trust, which can often be a tedious and confusing process. Since a trustee has a fiduciary duty to the beneficiaries of the trust, having legal counsel as a part of the team can be invaluable to the trustee during this difficult time.

PROBATE

Probate is the process of administering the estate of someone that has passed away without a trust (or without having properly funded their trust).  Our team is experienced with all aspects of probate court, and efficiently navigating the probate process.
