Firm Overview

Kyle D. Smith is an Irvine-based lawyer specializing in crafting high-quality estate plans for his clients. In most cases, a comprehensive estate plan requires more than a simple will. It should account for a wide variety of medical, personal, and financial decisions related to you and your family. This often means creating a trust, a durable power of attorney, and an advance medical directive in addition to your last will. With Kyle's help, you can easily take this important step in safeguarding your family's interests.

Kyle runs a transparent, reliable, and ethical practice. He responds to inquiries quickly and, unlike most attorneys, you can find his prices listed directly on his website. Get in touch today to get your estate planning questions answered.

Estate Planning
Do you know what will happen to your property when you die? How will your family and friends be cared for? Who will make decisions for you if you are unable to make them yourself? Kyle can help answer these and other questions.
Recent research suggests that almost 56% of Americans do not have any estate planning document in place. This means that many people may be leaving important familial decisions up to the government and their state's default rules.

Leaving behind a valid and enforceable will or trust puts the power back in your hands. With Kyle's help, you can be the one that decides how your family and friends are taken care of after you die. Contact Kyle today for a discounted consultation.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Kyle earned his juris doctor at UCLA School of Law. While studying at UCLA, he served as the Managing Articles Editor of the UCLA Journal of Law and Technology as well as a Managing Editor on the UCLA Journal of Environmental Law and Policy. Kyle also served as a Judicial Extern in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, where he gained experience in a broad range of topics involving federal law and appellate procedure.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

When Kyle started his own practice, he had one primary goal in mind: to create an affordable client-centered practice.

Most people that interact with lawyers on a regular basis have noticed that the legal industry is plagued by outdated business practices. Lawyers produce unintelligible work product, engage in questionable billing practices, and neglect the importance of client satisfaction and understanding. While other industries have moved into the 21st century with ease, lawyers have had to be dragged kicking and screaming. Kyle seeks to create a different kind of practice.

Kyle charges competitive rates that are up-front and listed on his website. He e-mails invoices directly to his clients and allows for online credit card payments for flat fee services. Kyle also refuses to bill his clients for check-in e-mails or brief phone calls. These business practices help facilitate an open and stress-free attorney-client relationship.
