Gilfix and La Poll is the preeminent estate planning law firm in the Silicon Valley and greater San Francisco Bay Area. Since our inception in 1983, we’ve practiced estate and tax law and pioneered what has come to be known as elder law. Likewise, we created the first estate programs for families with special needs and consequently we are the nationally-recognized leader in our speciality.

What Our Clients Say

"When my husband died, I thought everything would be a mess and that I could not possibly manage it. He always took care of the paperwork. My attorney at Gilfix & La Poll Associates LLP explained all the steps that have to be taken, saw to it that all steps were taken, and literally held my hand through the process. I could not be more pleased."
