Who We Are

Hanley Law is a boutique law firm that has been in existence for 48+ years and is located in the Northern California’s San Jose and sunny San Diego, California. We believe it’s good business to put our clients’ needs first. Our practice is built upon helping clients with estate planning and trust administration. Everyone needs an estate plan. Why? An estate plan goes beyond deciding who gets the family home or grandma’s pearls. An estate plan incorporates your wishes about personal care should you become ill.  We use a sensible approach, one that focuses on personalized and responsive service, to help our clients and their families.
