Montecito Attorney John Ambrecht Named to Worth Top 100 List

Lawyer honored for "exceptional" work in estate and trust planning.

John W. Ambrecht, founder and owner of Ambrecht & Associates in Montecito, was recently selected to appear in Worth magazine’s exclusive annual list of “100 most exceptional attorneys.”

Ambrecht has lived and worked in Montecito since 1980. He lectures locally and nationally about the legal, psychological and emotional issues of estate, trust, family business and wealth succession planning. He has co-authored several articles and recently completed his first book with two other co-authors, For Love & Money: Protecting Family & Wealth in Estate and Succession Planning — A New Approach Blending Law and Psychology. The book aims to improve the succession-planning process to help families retain more of their assets through the generations.

While most of Ambrecht’s clients are in the tri-counties, his extensive, specialized experience in on-shore and off-shore asset protection, resolving tax controversy matters, and integrating sophisticated estate and tax planning with intergenerational family dynamics has attracted high-net worth clients from around the world. He is a member of two exclusive legal organizations, the American Council of Trust & Estate Council and the California Trust & Estate Counsellors.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
