About Our Firm

Our Philosophy
Ventura County Lawyer ©Valentin Mendoza

We pride ourselves on being a client-centered firm with clients throughout Southern California. We assist our clients with their estate planning, probate, trust, conservatorship and guardianship matters, formation of profit and non-profit businesses, buying and selling businesses, general business dealings, real estate transactions and animal law cases.

We enjoy learning more about our clients’ lives and growing with them over the years. Many of our clients have been with us for more than 40 years! We make sure that our clients are pleased with our services and that our charges for their services are reasonable.

Our Primary Goal
Ventura Lawyer ©Valentin Mendoza

The primary goal of our firm is to please our clients with our services and the charges for those services. To this end, we make sure that we listen carefully to our clients to understand their needs and goals, that our services achieve those goals and fulfill those needs, that we promptly perform our services, that we are available to our clients and quickly return phone calls and other communications, and that we are efficient and our charges reflect our efficiency.

In the event that we are requested to perform a service that we believe can be performed better or for less money by other attorneys, we will so inform the client and recommend those attorneys who we believe will please the client. Our new clients come almost exclusively from referrals from other clients, a fact which is evidence that we do please our clients with our services and the charges for those services.

  • Katherine and Sacheen were amazing and helped me understand the complicated business matters we were dealing with.  They assisted me with both the incorporation of my business, and the purchase of another business.  I appreciated that they always returned my calls and emails quickly.  The staff was very comforting and courteous.  My business is doing well, and I know part of my success is thanks to my lawyer and her staff!

  • Katie Becker has the utmost respect and care for her clients. You feel as though you are being treated as family. I know this because I am not only her client but have referred her to my own clients as well and they have given me the same feedback. It never seems to be a bother when you call her; she welcomes all questions and challenges. She handles everything with professionalism and confidentiality. Highly recommend her!

  • I sleep better knowing that my family’s estate planning needs are in Katie’s capable hands. Just as important as their professionalism and experience is how they treat their clients. This is expert legal advice on a first name basis.
