David Talley

Hello! I’m David Talley, the founder of TrustCounsel PC, an Estate Planning law firm in Lake Forest, California. I help clients make the best personal, financial, and legal decisions for their family - now and throughout their lifetime. Estate Planning is not a set of documents you create and sit on a shelf - it's a process, that continues, as our life and circumstances change and evolve over time. In short, my sole focus is to help families manage life changes in the most positive way possible. I want you to know you’ve made a big step toward peace of mind simply by reading this. We have many resources for you so you can ensure your family and loved ones stay out of court and out of conflict, if and when something happens to you. I'd love to share some of these resources with you ​going forward. I'm here to work with you, to protect the people you love and everything else you care about today. I look forward to meeting you!
