Attorney Profile

Since 2014, John F. Doyle has been a partner at WealthPLAN, PC, where he focuses his practice on estate planning, trust administration and probate, and estate and trust litigation. Located in San Jose, California, his clients come from throughout Santa Clara County and other parts of the San Francisco Bay Area. Admitted to practice before all California state courts, Mr. Doyle is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California.

As part of his estate planning practice, Mr. Doyle regularly prepares wills, revocable trusts, health care and financial powers of attorney, and advance medical directives. His experience encompasses more sophisticated documents as well, including special needs trusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts and intentionally defective grantor trusts, and he assists clients with their income and estate tax planning as well as their gifting strategies. On the litigation side, Mr. Doyle has represented trustees, executors and potential beneficiaries in will contests and trust disputes, and his administration background has encompassed guiding clients through the probate process.

Majoring in economics and theology, Mr. Doyle attended Loyola Marymount University as an undergraduate and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2003. After graduation, he worked as an accountant for a Boston-based custodial bank until he decided he wanted to pursue a legal education. Accordingly, Mr. Doyle enrolled at the University of the Pacific's McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2009. While he was in law school, he served clerkships with WealthPLAN, PC, and other law firms. Mr. Doyle joined a Sacramento-based litigation firm after his graduation and was an associate there until joining his current firm. His professional affiliations include the Santa Clara County Bar Association, the Silicon Valley Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
