Integrity is the foundation upon which S.J. Khalsa has built his firm. Intent on making a difference in the lives of those for whom he served as legal counsel, S.J. recognized that the traditional approach to estate planning needed to give way to a more modern alternative. He chose to challenge the status quo of the attorney/client relationship by offering client-oriented legal services that put the client first. A nationally recognized attorney in the field of estate planning and elder law, he authored the book Estate Planning Essentials: A Guidebook for Modern Families to familiarize people with modern estate planning. He serves his clients from his heart and helps his clients make the tough decisions needed to protect their loved ones. Then, when needed, he and his firm carefully guide their loved ones through the toughest times life presents.
