How the Estatehood Story Began…

During the decade she spent as an estate attorney advising individual clients, Janice Tam, Esq., recognized an absence of key resources for most bereaved families.  

While the wealthiest families can hire a team of professionals to settle affairs, everyone else is left to fend for themselves during one of the hardest times of their lives.

Grief does not have to be compounded by trying to settle complicated affairs.  We offer informed solutions to the complex issues that arise during this time.
