I graduated from Southwestern University School of Law in 2004. While waiting for bar exam results I began to clerk for an experienced, 40+ year Trusts and Estates attorney, Harry A. Olivar in Los Angeles. He became my dear friend and mentor for five years until he passed away due to cancer in 2009.
After working with Harry for about two years, I decided that I needed to litigate cases in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the law and to develop the skills needed to practice in a court of law. For five years, I litigated cases as an insurance defense attorney with he firm of Fernandez & Lauby LLP located in Riverside, California.
In early 2010, I felt that I was being led to pick up where Harry left off and formed Kayser Law Group to assist clients with wealth planning and preservation and thus my journey into the areas of estate planning, probate, trust administration, conservatorships and guardianships began.
This journey was also inspired by my father who retired in 2010 after 53 years of practicing medicine in San Dimas, California. My father’s age and health issues were a contributing factor in my career change and I felt that there was a need for experienced trusts, estates and probate attorneys who have great compassion and empathy in addition to their legal knowledge and skills in order to help family's provider for the needs of their aging family members.
