My family and I thank you all.

John Palley was referred to me after my mother passed in 2017. From our initial telephone conversation through the conclusion of the probate process, Mr. Palley and his staff were professional, considerate, and attentive. They responded to telephone and email messages immediately with thorough and helpful responses, and made themselves available in person when needed for in-depth discussion. Mr. Palley's experience and insight with complicated estate matters ultimately allowed my family to conclude this unhappy part of our lives much quicker than expected, and his guidance saved us tens of thousands of dollars. Thank you for ev

I was told early on by an elderly kind attorney that the probate process in California is no joke. As a matter of fact he indicated he no longer had the energy to do a full Probate & suggested that I find someone that specializes in that area. So since the fees in California are statutory I set out to find the very best. And the best I found! I can’t say enough about John Palley and his paralegal Danielle; actually everyone in that office who I had an interaction with. Words that come to mind…….. caring, efficient, responsive, knowledgeable, dynamic. He is totally on your team and steers you in the best direction for your situation. I had some other issues (probate related) come up during the process and John helped me with those as well. It was like being treated as a family member

When Placer County called me on my birthday, the 12th day of November, 2014 and asked if I would handle the my mothers estate. I was unaware that my mother died Christmas Day 2013. I was made aware, along with my brother and my two twin step-sisters, we were all disinherited by the Will. Being raised knowing the difference between right and wrong….I agree to handle the estate. I received the information and started to google who is the best Probate Attorney’s in Placer County/Sacramento Area…. Meissner, Joseph & Palley, Inc., was at the top of the list. I called, I was directed to their corporate partner John Palley. We spoke about the Probate process and how it works. I was at ease to know I had a real pro in my corner! John simplified the entire process in plain Englis

I am very grateful to Attorney John Palley for guiding me thorugh the probate process when my sister died unexpectedly in 2013. The referral came from our financial planner and I am so grateful for his recommendation. I live in San Diego and since John’s office is in Sacramento all our communication was done by e-mail or phone conversations. In fact, I didn’t have to appear in court because John represented me – that was a big relief! One of John’s greatest assets is that he responded to my numerous questions immediately. It is wonderful to find someone like John Palley who will go the extra mile to assure peace of mind every step along the way. His availability, and most of all his professionalism, knowledge, generosity and kindness can’t be matched. He took me under his
