About Us

Meet Your Attorney

Kathryn Taps, Esq.

Kathryn is the founding attorney of LifeLadder Legal Advisory, and she feels privileged to lead her clients through a more approachable, more holistic estate planning process, tailored to the priorities and objectives of young professionals and growing families.

After her husband lost three close family members in less than two and half years, Kathryn gained the valuable experience of standing in her client’s shoes. She learned first-hand where the traditional estate planning process is failing – failing even those who try their best to plan ahead.

Also, having two little boys in the last four years has made her keenly aware that loving and protecting our children is the best kind of life-long responsibility.

In creating LifeLadder, Kathryn has transformed these lessons into better practice methods, by focusing on educating her clients and accompanying them through the successes and growing pains on the ladder of their lives.

She lives in Orange County with her husband, her two sons, her Bengal cat Ashby, and her Shepherd-mix rescue's Chloe and Olive. She is licensed to practice law in California.
