An Experienced and Caring Southern California Elder Law Attorney for Over 40 Years

Helping you prepare, protecting your loved ones and your assets

I am Joseph E. Deering. I joined my father’s Southern California practice in 1972. He had already been serving this area and surrounding communities since 1946. Together, we dedicated our practice to the belief that clients deserve outstanding service and personal attention.

After practicing together for 20 years, my father retired and I continued our steadfast commitment to meet the legal needs of individuals, seniors and their families in and around Southern California with responsive, experienced and affordable representation.

My practice places emphasis on issues affecting the growing population of older adults. I fully advise you on legal, financial and healthcare matters so you can feel comfortable making the decisions necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones in case of accident, disability, illness or death.

I also assist those needing to protect an elder family member or who must administer an estate after a death, even if your loved one lives outside of southern California.

Dedicated, client-focused representation across Southern California

My clients are my top priority. When you come to my firm for help, I invest the time necessary to get to know you and to understand your unique situation and legal goals. I tailor my services to meet your needs and guide you through the legal process from start to finish. Through communication, education and sound counsel, I seek to help you make informed decisions.

I provide comprehensive representation on the following legal matters:

Successfully serving clients for over 40 years
