Tax, Business Succession, and Estate Planning Attorneys


Beacon LLP

Established at the beginning of 2023 by Steven Trytten and Erica B. Deutsch, Beacon LLP provides estate, tax, and business succession planning for California clients from our office in Pasadena, California. The formation of this firm was the natural “next step” for our practice. At Beacon, we focus on client service and personalized attention. Our well-integrated team shares a depth of expertise and standard-setting best practices developed over a decade of working together.

We Are Client-Oriented

Our philosophy is simple – we provide the level of individual service and accessibility we would want as a client. We take pride in tailoring our work specifically to the needs and unique circumstances of each client. While we are known for our innovation, creativity, and sophistication in designing estate plans and tax-saving transactions for clients, we haven’t forgotten how to explain things in plain English so our clients feel comfortable before proceeding.

Our Skills Speak for Themselves

Our team has a combined 50+ years of experience in the tax and estate planning field. Steve is a CPA, MBA, ACTEC fellow, and CA specialist in both Taxation and Estate Planning and Probate. Erica is a CA specialist in Estate Planning and Probate and has an LLM in Estate Planning. Our attorneys have received various recognitions over the years, including being named as distinguished attorneys by Best Lawyers of America, Super Lawyers, and Pasadena Magazine’s Top Lawyers.

Our Collaborative Approach

People are the center of our practice. While other firms may enlist a one-size-fits-all approach, we make it a point to tailor our strategies to each client. By collaborating directly with our clients and other experts in our network, our team is able to optimize our legal advice in accordance with each client's unique goals and ideal results. When you work with us, you can trust that your voice will be valued and heard and that we will guide you forward with intent.
