Preserving Your Legacy Through Estate Planning

Biography

 

Don "DJ" Ross

Hi, I’m Don,

Most people call me DJ. I thrive on educating people about the benefits of estate planning so that they can keep their family out of court and out of conflict.

I first served as a law enforcement officer before continuing my public service work with the District Attorney’s office, and helping victim’s families recover from tragic loss.  During my time with the DA, I received multiple awards for pioneering work in victim services.

After 15 years in public service, I attended law school and graduated in the top 1% of my class from Taft University.  After graduation, I worked for a large law firm specializing in Wealth Management and Estate Planning in Newport Beach, California, where I worked with high-net worth families and their businesses.  Frustrated by the failures of the traditional law approach to estate planning, I worked with the Family Wealth Institute, an organization that provides coaching and support services to attorneys who engage in planning for parents and grandparents focused on the heathy transition of family wealth, and I am a member of the Wealth Counsel, a national organization of trust and estates attorneys and other legal, tax and business professionals who design sophisticated planning techniques for individuals and families.

I meet clients virtually throughout California or in-person. Contact me today at 760-999-2095 to learn how you can protect the people and assets that you love.
