Firm Profile

Located in the Bay Area suburb of Orinda, California, Hartog & Baer is a results-driven trust and estate law firm with a comprehensive and sophisticated practice. We offer experienced counsel in all manner of estate planning and administration matters, from the initial drafting of wills and trusts to the supervision of estate and trust distribution. For clients throughout the Bay Area and statewide, we provide the resources and wide-ranging knowledge of a large firm and the spirit and dedication of a small firm. Five of our attorneys are eminently capable litigators who can navigate the jurisdictional, ethical and technical complexities of probate and trust litigation, and we also offer expert testimony, consultation and mediation in trust and estate disputes.

Our attorneys collectively wield nearly a century of rich experience in several practice areas pertinent to our trust and estates practice, including tax law, corporate law, business formation, real estate law and elder law. Three of our attorneys are certified as specialists in estate planning, trust and probate law by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, and two serve as mediators and expert witnesses before courts in California and nationwide. In addition to our superb record of success, several of our attorneys are widely recognized as authorities in their field. John Hartog and David Baer have both contributed significantly to treatises and practice guides, and Mr. Hartog's record of published work and lectures at workshops, seminars and other continuing legal education events around the country stretches back nearly three decades.

Our broad client base includes nonprofits, charities, financial institutions and other entities as well as individuals and their families. Among our other individual and collective honors, we are ranked as a first-tier law firm in trusts and estates law and litigation by U.S. News & World Report.
