Anthony Celaya is a very professional and efficient Estate Planning attorney. He recently completed our Family Living Trust and we are very happy with the process, the cost and the results. He listened carefully to our individual situation and prepared the document to meet our unique requirements. His fees are reasonable and competitive. He completed our document very quickly in approximately one week. He also provides continuing support after the trust is set up and is always available to answer questions or go over changes. He has a secure login to review trust information at his website. He’s on the leading edge for estate attorney services and we would recommend him highly..
John Humphrey
Anthony Celaya was extremely helpful in updating our Family Trust to ensure not only our wishes were covered, but also our Trust was tax efficient and protected the family. Anthony was very patient when answering a multitude of questions typically asked by a “lay person” who is not literate on Family Trust planning. Moreover, Anthony’s attention to detail and follow-through has ensured we covered all the bases. I feel confident that as time goes on, Anthony will not only continue to support us, but also our family when the time comes.

Anthony Celaya expertly revised our trust documents and promptly answered the questions we had at that time and various inquiries we have had since. He regularly keeps in touch with clients on various issues pertinent to trust and tax planning. The fees for the services he renders are very reasonable, and my wife and I are confident that he will continue to look out for our interests. We highly recommend him.
Edward J. Muenk
Both my wife and myself did our wills and trust work with Anthony and his firm. He executed his duties at the time with professionalism and speed, and has been very helpful in staying in touch since then. We can recommend him highly.
H. Stuart Harrison
Our extended family needed assistance with trusts and powers of attorney etc. urgently. Anthony made home visits and acted quickly to meet the need which was much appreciated. He was able to explain complex legal details and reassure us that the proper steps had been taken.
Darlene Hoffmark
Anthony really took the time to listen to my needs and offered guidance and strategies to how best achieve our goals. He counseled me through all aspects of our Estate planning process and explained all documents throughly with an extreme attention to detail. The best way I would describe him is a person of integrity, honesty and wants what’s best for his clients.
Ernestina Davin
Anthony Celaya is a very experienced, professional lawyer that I highly recommend. He expertly guided my wife and I through the process of executing our Will and Trust documents to protect our family and assets and avoid probate.
Mariano Alvira
Anthony is the most professional, knowledgeable, detailed oriented, and compassionate lawyer with whom my husband I have consulted. My husband and I recently moved to Napa, CA from Seattle, Washington, and we felt we needed to update our Will, and Estate planning, since we have four children and several grandchildren. Also, we have lived in many states, have had experience with many lawyers, and had routinely updated our Will. Anthony expertly guided us through the process to execute the new Will documents and Trust documents, to protect our family and assets, avoid probate. In the midst of finalizing small points of the Trust documents, my husband was unexpectedly hospitalized for several months in Stanford Hospital. Anthony called us several times, offered to visit us in Palo Alto while we were in the hospital, and met with my son in Napa, to address a few legal issues. Anthony has life experience which sets him apart from other lawyers, and was willing to help us in any way possible, to meet our legal objectives. My husband and I plan to visit Anthony again soon, because we feel it is important to review our Will and estate planning . I would definitely recommend Anthony for all Will and Estate planning needs. He is the above the rest.
Jan Marie A.
We came in looking to create a trust and discuss estate planning in general. Our first meeting with Mr. Celaya was very relaxed and we came prepared with a list of our assets and a general idea of what we wanted in the trust. He provided several suggestions in how to accomplish our ultimate goals that we had in mind. We felt very comfortable and confident with his suggestions and explanations of legal terms and the estate process. We returned about 3-4 weeks later and signed the completed trust documents, wills, power of attorney forms, medical directives, etc. He assisted us with the recording and transfer of our assets to the trust. We highly recommend Mr. Celaya and his services to anyone looking to discuss estate planning.
Caitlin O.
Anthony is a consummate and caring professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone interested in setting up a trust. Creating a family trust was on our to-do list for years and we’re so glad we were able to cross paths and finally get our financial planning act together with his guidance! Anthony’s extensive knowledge, personable demeanor and straightforward approach immediately put us at ease and made for an extremely pleasant and efficient process. Thank you so much!

At Celaya Law, We Offer Sound Guidance for Your Estate Plan and Asset Protection Needs

“When it comes to working with families, I’ve seen it all—from children left without guardians, to estates locked up in probate, to inheritances completely lost to creditors. I’ve dealt with rogue siblings taking advantage of unsuspecting parents, inheritances lost to needless tax disasters, and businesses that have failed because owners didn’t plan for their demise. Consequently, I have a passion for providing peace of mind through the best and most efficient estate planning strategies. I’ll let you know exactly what your legal options are, counsel you regarding what I recommend doing and why, quote you a fixed price, and give you an exact date I’ll have the work done. It’s as simple as that.” – Anthony Celaya, JD

"What I enjoy most is working with our clients one on one. At Celaya Law, we’ve developed a system that puts our clients first, so I have ample time to guide them through every aspect of planning their estate. Creating trustworthy relationships that will last a lifetime is my highest priority." – Meghan M. Avila

A variety of estate planning tools

minor children
protection

Many parents put off estate planning because they do not think they have substantial assets to protect. This outlook is common among young adults who think they have plenty of time to accumulate wealth and plan for it at a later date. However, in failing to create a proper estate plan, many parents cannot adequately protect their children.

Beneficiary Inheritance
Protection

One of the greatest gifts a parent can give to a child is an asset-protected inheritance trust. When assets are given outright to a child, those assets are immediately exposed to “creditors and predators.” In too many cases, inheritances are quickly stripped from a beneficiary. The most common scenarios that eliminate inheritances are...

Long-term Care
Protection

The high cost of long-term care has made planning a critically important issue for most middle class seniors and their families. In fact, most seniors will likely require some form of long-term care. Sadly, many of them are unprepared for the significant financial burdens it places on their family’s hard earned savings.
