Gary R. Kershner

Attorney at Law

After graduating from Santa Clara University in 1986 with an MBA and a law degree, I initially focused on business litigation. While I enjoyed crafting business solutions for clients, I couldn't help but think that many of these problems could have been prevented with better planning. That's when I decided to focus on estate planning, which is now the primary focus of my practice. I'm proud to be able to provide my clients with the personalized care and attention they deserve.
