Attorney Nicholas P. Jellins, founder of The Jellins Group, has deep roots in the community and a history of service.  As the former mayor of Menlo Park, Nicholas had the opportunity to interact with many community leaders, and remains inspired to help the community by providing honest, practical, and efficient legal services to his clients. 

If you are in need of estate planning, Nicholas realizes planning is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, and will analyze your assets, listen to your needs, and create an individualized estate plan that makes sense for you.  If you are the fiduciary of an estate or trust, Nicholas works diligently to avoid delays, resolve conflicts, and efficiently administer the assets to those entitled to receive them.  Using his depth of knowledge and experience, Nicholas is ready to talk with you about your particular probate, trust, and estate planning needs.
