Why Choose Us as Your Estate Planning Attorney?

Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Probate and Trust Law

The California State Bar requires that each Estate Planning Specialist has the required level of skill, expertise and experience in the area of Estate Planning, Probate and Trust law to become a Board Certified Specialist. Board certification requires proving these qualifications through a rigorous application process, a day-long written exam and through independent inquiry and review by others in the estate planning community.

Big Firm Experience Without the Cost

The attorneys of Modern Wealth Law come from the biggest and most well-known estate planning firms in the country. We provide the same expertise of the big firms, however, due to our smaller footprint, we are able to provide a more responsive and personalized service to our clients. We are able to provide this customized first-class service for each of our clients at a more reasonable cost compared to the big firms.

Trusted in the Community

Our trust in the community runs deeper than estate planning. John L. Wong is also the Commissioner of John Wayne Airport in Orange County where he oversees the various projects by airport staff. Anh P. Tran is on the board of Impact Giving in Orange County. Her all-women charity, provides thousands of dollars to Orange County organizations every year. We have also been published in national newspapers discussing the issues of estate planning.


Choosing an estate planning attorney is a life-long relationship. If your estate planning attorney is retired or deceased when you need to make changes to your estate plan in the future, you will be left starting from scratch with another attorney. This will lead to frustration and additional costs. Each of the attorneys at Modern Wealth Law intends to practice for many years to come. We will be available to guide not only you, but also your family’s next generation.

Testimonials from Clients and Other Professionals

Mr. Wong is a breath of fresh air. I’ve worked with several attorneys on other types of matters, and Mr. Wong is the first attorney to get it. He offered a simple flat fee, with a breakdown of my options, and advised me on what was necessary, what was advised, and what was completely optional. With the flat fee I felt like I could ask the questions that were necessary without feeling rushed. While I thought I did my fair of research about estate planning, Mr. Wong identified significant issues that I was unaware of. I highly recommend Mr. Wong.
Justin W., Estate Planning Client
Mr. Wong is an outstanding attorney with an in-depth and focused understanding of estate planning. I would, and do, wholeheartedly recommend John to any client seeking legal counsel with respect to their estate.
Jeff Pham, Business Attorney
I had a great experience using John as my estate planning attorney. He was knowledgeable about several issues, including income tax issues that my CPA had not addressed. He worked with my CPA and Financial Advisor to ensure that everyone was on the same page with my financial picture. Most importantly, we set up an estate plan to protect my business and my children from creditors.
Ursula Reyes, Estate Planning Client
John is bright, thorough and hard-working. He’s a top notch estate planning and probate litigation attorney.
