Dear Clients & Colleagues,


After 20 years of practicing law, 10 of which have been together at Osterloh & Orta, we are closing our estate planning practice. Melinda will focus on raising her boys, and Gigi is moving to J.P. Morgan’s Northern California Private Bank business as an Executive Director, where she will work with high net worth families to develop and implement tax-efficient wealth transfer and estate planning strategies.

If you need estate planning, probate, or trust administration services, please contact our successors, Nicholau Adams and Linn Schulte-Sasse at Adams & Sasse, LLP. We believe they are going to bring tremendous value to our clients, and have confidence that they will continue to provide the level of service and attention to detail that we have brought to you in the past. Although Nick and Linn have started their own firm, they plan to retain the current office space and telephone number in Oakland for ongoing continuity of service and attention. You can learn more about them on their website

We have enjoyed working with you and sincerely thank you for your business over the years.


Melinda & Gigi
