Informative, reasonably priced legal services attuned to our clients’ needs
Guthrie & Harrison, formerly known as Guthrie & McCaleb, has been at the same address, 3650 Auburn Boulevard, Sacramento, CA, for nearly 50 years. A family-oriented firm, they pride themselves on providing informative, reasonably priced legal services that are attuned to their clients' needs.
Wills & Trusts
Because many of the dissolution documents and estate documents we handle need to have notarized signatures, we provide a notary public in the office at no extra expense for our represented clients.
We can also be retained to simply write a letter for you, as sometimes people respond better to a letter written by an attorney. This service would be determined on an hourly basis.

A mother of two grown daughters, Ms. Harrison is well-suited to the practice of family law and has the background and wherewithal to deal with sensitive issues that naturally arise in such a practice.

Focused on Family Law, Probate, Wills, and Trusts
One of our main focus areas is family law. This covers many issues, including divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and adoption. We can represent you in a single matter or single hearing to keep costs low.
We also create estate documents. A Will sets out the distribution of your assets after death through court probate. A Revocable Trust also names your beneficiaries but gives you more flexibility during your lifetime and generally avoids probate.
