Robert A. Smykowski has personally prepared living trust estate plans for tens of thousands of clients over 40 years. He is a highly experienced and skilled lawyer focusing his practice in the area of Living Trusts and Estate Planning. During the last 38 years he has developed a reputation for his experience in handling these issues. Lawyers, CPAs, financial planners, insurance professionals and his own clients send him many referrals.
He lives in Poway, CA with his wife of 44 years. Together they raised 4 wonderful children. The oldest daughter followed in her dad's footsteps and became an estate planning attorney with a very successful practice in Walnut Creek, CA. The second child, a son, graduated from University of San Diego School of Law, passed the bar exam and has joined the firm. The youngest two children have taken a different path and pursued careers in the technology industry. The youngest daughter is a financial analyst and technology consultant for a Fortune 500 company, and the youngest son has established himself as a software platform engineer with a focus on back end implementation and architecture.
In addition to having a law degree, Mr. Smykowski also holds an electrical engineering degree from New York University and credits towards a Masters in Business Administration. It is this knowledge that allows him to write and update his own computer software program. This fact, in addition to his very organized and streamlined process, saves much time thereby saving clients money in legal fees. An attorney once told him that he would need four attorneys to do the same work output that Mr. Smykowski can accomplish alone.
He has been told many times that, if not for him, clients would be either unwilling or unable to afford the fees charged by other attorneys for this service, oftentimes exceeding $1,500. Clients appreciate his no nonsense, direct approach to getting the job done while respecting his clients and fully understanding their wishes.
In much of his practice he compassionately assists clients and their families with difficult and unexpected end-of-life issues.
By narrowing the scope of his services offered, he is very skilled in specific areas of practice resulting in high quality outstanding service to his clients and reduced legal fees.
