Alameda County, CA, March 21, 2019 — Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos, LLP of Pleasanton and Randick O’Dea Tooliatos Vermont & Sargent of Castro Valley are pleased to announce the merger of their firms, effective April 1, 2019. The combined firm’s name, Randick O’Dea Tooliatos Vermont & Sargent, LLP, also recognizes the significant contributions of Phillip Vermont, a long-time partner of the Randick firm. Randick O’Dea Tooliatos Vermont & Sargent maintains offices in Castro Valley and Pleasanton, serving the greater East Bay/Tri-Valley community.
Sargent Law’s practice areas include estate planning, probate, trust administration, business law, Medi-Cal and Veteran’s Pension Planning. These areas of law will further complement the practice areas of Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos which handles business law, real estate, civil litigation, trust and estate planning and administration, tax law and tax planning, and intellectual property law. Both firms look forward to offering their clients additional experience and an expanded range of legal services in a cost effective manner to best achieve their clients’ legal needs.
Hannah Sargent founded the Sargent firm in 2012. She has grown her firm at a remarkable pace and gained an outstanding reputation as a skilled probate and estate planning attorney in Alameda County.
Nick Tooliatos, managing partner of Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos, LLP, said the combined experience and resources of the newly expanded firm underscore its standing as a go-to law firm in the East Bay and Tri-Valley community.
Tooliatos and Sargent, both Army veterans, met one day after a court hearing and quickly bonded based on their prior military service. That chance meeting led to several cases that they handled together, and the realization that a partnership was a natural next step. “When we discovered that our attorneys and practice areas were so complementary, uniting our firms made sense,” said Mr. Tooliatos. “Together, we offer legal counsel to meet a wide range of needs for clients in the East Bay, and we look forward to working in unison to meet those needs.”
