Phyllis A. Oscar has been practicing law for over twenty years. She practices in the field of estate planning to help individuals and families gain peace of mind by “taking care of business.”
Prior to opening my solo practice, I was a Litigation Associate at Morrison and Foerster, LLP, and served as a Law Clerk in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. I also practiced employment law at the United States Postal Service and served as in-house counsel for a real estate investment firm. I graduated from Northeastern University School of Law.

I work with individuals and families to craft comprehensive, proactive plans for the future that take into account personal values, the elements of a life well-lived, and a vision of how they’d like to be remembered – their vision of lasting impact. I help my clients bring their lives into focus and build positive legacies for themselves and their families, particularly the myriad ways to contribute to the welfare of themselves, their families and friends, and the larger community.
I aim to bring together my diverse skills and talents when I work with clients. I have a background in complex commercial and international litigation, real estate litigation and transactions, and business and employment law, and planning for the future.
I’ve also practiced meditation for over thirty years and earned a Certificate in Mindfulness Facilitation from UCLA in 2011. As a result, I bring compassion and understanding to the potentially challenging explorations and conversations that may occur when addressing issues of meaning, contribution, and mortality.
My estate planning practice includes the preparation of wills, living trusts, powers of attorney for finances and health care; trust administration; conservatorships; probate. I continue to practice litigation, now in the field of Probate Law.
