COO of The Kinship Project
Matt set up an LLC for me. He was great to work with, quick to respond to my questions via e-mail, and charged a fair price.
Mr. Odgers is an outstanding attorney and I highly recommend him to anyone who has a business dispute arise. He was quick to respond when I first contacted him and he was incredibly patient and thorough when answering all of my questions. He ended up coming to a better solution that I ever imagined possible, as well as salvaged the relationship with the business I was in dispute with. It really was a pleasure working with Mr. Odgers and If I ever find myself in need of a great lawyer again he will be my go-to guy.
Matthew has assisted me with the start up of my business. His knowledge and experience made the process extremely smooth and fluent. I was very impressed with how resourceful he was and would highly recommend his expertise to ease any legal issues involved with starting a business.

Wills and Trusts
In California if you do not proactively plan for the transfer and management of your assets upon your death, the courts will look to the California statutes to make decisions on your behalf. Not only will the state be making the decisions on your behalf, but the attorneys fees for the administration will likely be taken from your estate, thus leaving less for your loved ones. This can easily be avoided by setting up a comprehensive estate plan while you are alive and well. A few of the estate planning documents help clients draft are:
- revocable living trusts;
- financial power of attorneys;
- health care power of attorneys;
- guardian provisions;
- HIPPA authorizations;
- living wills;
- and memorial instructions
At Odgers Law Group, we help individuals and families transfer their assets when they want, to whom they want, in the way they want, while avoiding any unnecessary taxes, legal fees, and family turmoil.
