Dustin MacFarlane’s primary focus was on Estate Planning when he started the firm, however as time passed, he saw the increasing need for a “Senior-Focused” practice in the Greater Sacramento area. Nearly 10 years after opening its doors, MacFarlane Legal changed its name to Senior Citizen Lawyer. Our goal is to ensure Seniors and their families are prepared and taken care of in the way that they wish to be.
