Law Office of Jeffrey C. Nickerson

Ten years ago my special needs son turned 18 and I was told; “You need to set up and estate plan with a special needs trust”.   So we found an attorney who prepared our plans.  Even though I was an experienced attorney, I had no practical understanding of the legalese in our own estate plan & special needs trust.  I made a commitment that day to become an estate planning attorney that provide clients an estate plan specifically designed for their unique family situation but also simple and understandable.

I was raised in Southern California, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Finance & MBA from Cal State University Long Beach.  AFter several years preparing contracts for a major aeorspace company, I returned to law school where I served on the law review and obtained a Juris Doctorate fron Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego.  I utilized these skills in aerospace in managing a large contracts organziation where responsibilities included contracts, export licensing, software licensing and patnet applications.  My wife & two sons purchased our first home in Murrieta in 1989.

In 2010 I left aerospace and launched my law practice in Murrieta.  The practice is focused solely on estate planning & administration and special needs trusts.

My wife and I are founders of Exceptional Sports, a non-profilt organzation dedicated to providing recreational sports opportunities to those with special needs.  My passion is providing special needs advise & counsel to special needs families.

I am an active member of the Riverside County Bar - Estate Planning Section, Southwest Riverside County Bar Association, Temecula Estate Planning Group, Wealth Counsel and Academy of Special Needs Planners.  I am an avid supporter of Special Olympics, Yellowstone Park Foundation and Yosemite Conservancy.  I love spending time outdoors and with family & friends.
