Gabriel Katzner had a good life in New York City, until the big apple had to let go the senior and most experienced lawyers from their corporate firms. Money was short and Corporate America was changing. Katzner had to move on and find a new path of life.
So, Katzner and his wife moved to California and had their first son. Parenthood brought a new meaning and different interest. He recognized that the need to be responsible and to protect his legacy and the future of his first born. Knowing his trade, he searched around for a law firm that could provide him with the estate planning guidance he needed. Soon he discovered that every lawyer he visited was interested mainly in “financial wellness”.
Katzner, however, was concerned with the core values of his family. He worried about what would happen with his child’s education in case he and his wife couldn’t be around to help him grow? He had doubts about the limited personal knowledge of the guardian the attorneys were appointing in the legal papers. He felt that this person was only a formality authorized in the lawyer’s paperwork, but not true interested in the fine aspects of the everyday life of the child.
Katzner identified a true guarantor, as a person of total trust, that needed to be mindful of all the important facts and small details of everyday life.
Since he couldn’t find what he was looking for, opening an office and providing the service he needed was a good choice. Coming from a family of lawyers and successful self-employed professionals, he understood that his time to become independent has come.
Rapid success came to his new firm. With the experience in corporate law, and the thoughtful understanding of what had to be done, Katzner found a new mission and a strong calling by living in California, raising a family and helping others with their estate planning.
