About This FirmAt the Law Offices of Matthew J. Long I have been providing my clients with quality representation for many years. My practice has focused in the area of family law and estate planning for over 19 years, providing quality representation to my clients. I can help people through the legal process in a divorce or probate.
I am a former small claims pro tem judge for Santa Barbara County. I have also taught community property law since 1994 to law students. My role as a judge has given me the perspective to approach the law in a fair and just way. I have the experience in listening to both sides of a case and applying the law in the most fair and just manner.
For people concerned with their estate planning, I can guide them through the process a court will follow if they die with or without a will, or without a trust. Whether you are concerned with asset preservation and minimizing estate taxes, or whether you want to have a choice in where your assets go, I have many years experience in drafting wills, trusts and powers of attorney. I also assist people in preparing health care directives. I can help you through the probate process if a loved one died without a trust. Contact me today for more information.
