Erik McLain is the managing attorney of the firm.  He has been in practice over 18 years and is licensed to practice law in California and New York.   Throughout years of practicing and learning that lawyers are often associated with a negative experience, Erik founded Kids' Estate Planning to provide a joyful, meaningful service to clients.  As a husband and father himself, Erik enjoys learning about other families, sharing stories, and helping plan for your child's future.    

Mr. McLain founded Kids' Estate Planning in order to assist families outside of the “problem solving” context and to provide a helpful and rewarding experience with an attorney.  Mr. McLain understands that through estate & family planning, as well as probate & trust administration, he can assist parents, individuals, grandparents, children, spouses, and other loved ones with the most important aspects of life.   Erik strives to become the only lawyer you will need for the rest of your life and someone you can trust, respect, and rely upon.   

Mr. McLain graduated from St. John’s University in 1998 with honors and possesses a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a focus on accounting.  He also graduated with honors from Whittier Law School in 2001.   He is a proud husband and father.  In his free-time, Erik enjoys deep sea fishing, baseball, and golf.
