The Sydney Law Firm, P.C. Clients – Welcome to CunninghamLegal

Welcome to CunninghamLegal – The Living Trust Lawyers

On September 1st, 2017, The Sydney Law Firm, P.C. was acquired by CunninghamLegal. Jeff Sydney and his wife, Alicia, decided it was the the right time for them to retire and pass the baton to our firm to serve his clients.

We are honored that Jeff Sydney has entrusted his successful, long-standing practice to us at CunninghamLegal. Our shared passion for the law and estate planning bode well for a smooth and seamless transition as Jeff heads to a well-deserved retirement.

Most important is that we assure you that your estate & financial planning and trust administration are in safe hands. For more than twenty-two years, CunninghamLegal has helped clients like you with living trusts, estate planning, trust administration, probate law, and Medi-Cal and VA benefits planning. Your existing estate plans will not be impacted by this transition, and the staff in Woodland Hills is here to help you and is at your disposal.

You may not have thought about your living trust and estate plan for some time, and we are happy to help you reconnect, re-evaluate, and update your plans.

We understand that the relationship you have with your lawyer is a personal one, and we look forward to meeting you and gaining your trust.

James L. Cunningham, Jr.
Attorney at Law

Thank You – From Jeff Sydney

After many years of practice, I have decided with my wife, Alicia, that it is time for me to retire. My last day in the office was August 31, 2017. It has been my pleasure and privilege to be of service to you and your family during my career.

I have given thoughtful consideration and have devoted much research to determine to whom I should entrust my practice. This has led me to Jim Cunningham, Jr., a second generation attorney who, like me, has dedicated his career to estate planning and is a California State Bar Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust, and Probate Law. I trust that you will enjoy meeting Jim and benefiting from the energy and commitment he and the attorneys on his team will bring to their relationship with you. The Woodland Hills office will continue as a part of CunninghamLegal.

This transition will in no way affect your existing estate plan or trust administration. Jim and I will work together to make this change as seamless and easy for you and your family as possible. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office to schedule an appointment, as we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.

Again, I have tremendously enjoyed working with our clients and friends, and am very pleased to be leaving everyone in very competent and caring hands with Jim Cunningham, Jr. and CunninghamLegal.

Warmest Regards,

Jeff Sydney
The Sydney Law Firm, P.C.
