James H. Garrett
My practice has been limited to estate, trust and related tax matters for over 30 years. My tax expertise means that I am well-qualified to handle the larger and more complex matters.
The Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California has certified me as a specialist in two fields: (1) Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law; and (2) Taxation Law. Certification requires a written examination, extensive experience, ongoing education and favorable review by other attorneys in the field.
Fewer than 900 California attorneys are certified specialists in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law; and fewer than 400 California attorneys are certified specialists in Taxation Law. I am one of only 5 attorneys in San Diego County who are certified specialists in both Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law and in Taxation Law.
