Colleen E. McAvoy

PRACTICE AREAS: Estate Planning - Real Estate - Corporate Transactions - Probate, Trusts & Conservatorships

Sadly, Colleen McAvoy passed away in May, 2016, after practicing with McGlashan & Sarrail for 30 years. Colleen was a superlative attorney -- a certified specialist in estate planning, trust and probate law and a Northern California SuperLawyer; one of the leaders of our local legal community -- Board member and President of the San Mateo County Bar Association, Co-Chair of the Estate Planning and Probate Section, chair of numerous committees; an advocate and volunteer for many worthy causes; an avid skier, soccer and Shinty player. And a good friend.

While Nazar Ghosseiri and Katherine West will continue to provide excellent counsel for all estate planning, probate, trust and conservatorship needs, Colleen will be sorely missed by all of us. Please get in touch if you have questions or need assistance from Nazar or Katherine.
