Gregory Ashcraft, Esq.
Greg is an Estate Planning attorney in the firm. When he is not helping families create, implement, or execute plans to protect his clients’ assets and family members, he is busy with four children. He and his wife, Rachel, love music and met at Murrieta Valley High School when they were in choir together. They still sing regularly at church where Rachel is the church’s choir director. Their kids have followed in their musical footsteps and demand that their parents play the music from Hamilton while the whole family sings the lyrics at the top of their lungs.
