  • “My family needed some straight talk expert advice on a tax issue related to my father's death, passing away without a will. After hours of research on the Internet, we decided to consult Attorney John Goralka due to his impressive credentials. And we are glad that we did. John is a knowledgeable and caring professional. At the initial consultation, he listened patiently to our story and explained our options clearly without pressuring us to hire him. Throughout our engagement, John continued to be our helpful and reassuring advisor. Even though the amount at stake in our case was quite modest compared to others he handled, John understood our concerns and could think from our perspective. His responses to our questions were always very prompt and easy to understand. He made a stressful situation much less so. Working with John on my family’s tax matters and so many other things was a pleasure.”
  • "I recently came into quite of bit of money and Attorney Goralka helped me figure out what the tax consequences might be. Attorney Goralka was incredibly thorough during the process of settling the incredibly large estate and I will be forever grateful. He is brilliant and his staff was always on top of everything."
  • "I have used John’s services to assist with several matters for me and my family. John’s work was professionally excellent, and he always took the time to make sure that we understood what would need to be done and that we were comfortable with all the details. In addition to being an expert in his field, John has a great sense of compassion and humor which helps when you are dealing with serious topics like probate, wills and trusts! if you are in need of assistance in any of John’s practice areas, he will serve you very well. I would recommend him without hesitation to friends and family requiring legal services."
  • "After traveling across the country, during covid 19, John and his staff bent over backwards to ensure that we would spend no more time in California than absolutely necessary. We traveled to probate an estate and also a trust. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon, were able to meet with John on Wednesday and signed our last papers on Friday afternoon, allowing us to leave Sacramento on Saturday morning. John's paralegal, Haley Hanam was a God send, taking numerous calls from us and ALWAYS being able to answer our questions and expedite our legal papers. We would definitely recommend Goralka Law Firm to anyone needing legal assistance in the Sacramento area."
  • “This firm is extremely knowledgeable of anything and everything you need to know about protecting your assets, tax liability protection and preparing for the future; no matter what your age. They are up to date on every matter and have helped our family settle estates for our grandfather who had assets scattered all over, some of which we didn't even know about before Attorney Goralka found them. We couldn't be more grateful for all of his help and definitely would recommend him.”
