Trusts and Estates Taxation

About Matt Bruns

I started practicing law in 2007 in Philadelphia as a litigator. While I had some great experiences, I decided that I would rather use my skills to help build people up. At the same time that my wife and I moved to the Bay Area, my father suffered a series of strokes which left him seriously incapacitated. I saw first hand the difficulty of end of life decisions can be and the importance of trustworthy guidance. I changed my practice to tax law and estate planning, earning a masters degree with honors from Golden Gate University. I received my JD in 2007 from Washington University in St. Louis, my B.A. in Classical Studies from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. I have also clerked for the Tax Division of the US Department of Justice in San Francisco.
