Jill Mazirow Eshman, J.D., LL.M.


J Eshman Law, a boutique law firm established in 2005, provides legal guidance pertaining to business matters, real estate, estate planning, probate and trust administration. Jill is a deeply experienced and highly responsive business and personal lawyer. She serves clients in San Francisco and Los Angeles, California and Sun Valley, Idaho.

Jill advises business clients on matters involving entity formation, governance, financing, mergers and acquisitions, real estate purchase, sales, leasing, and the sale of a company either through an asset sale or stock sale.

As a personal lawyer, she represents individuals investing in real estate and operating businesses and guides them through ownership issues including partnership and operating agreements, purchasing a home, an investment property, or investing in a friend’s business. A significant part of Jill’s practice is guiding clients through the important and necessary estate planning process and trust administration. With her planning process, her clients and their families feel comfort that financial matters and estate planning goals have been addressed and organized to reduce stress, and that the client’s team of trusted advisors are available to counsel on a regular basis, not just in a time of crisis.

She is a member of the California State Bar, Bar Association of San Francisco, the Idaho State Bar, and the American Bar Association. Jill is also a member of the San Francisco Estate Planning Council and WealthCounsel, LLC, a nationwide collaboration of trust and estate planning attorneys and other legal, tax and business professionals.

Jill is also a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

Jill started practicing law in California as a transactional real estate attorney at Loeb & Loeb, and subsequently at Mayer, Brown & Platt. Her expertise in business law and finance was refined in her work as legal counsel for the business and entertainment banking department of Mercantile National Bank. In Idaho, Jill served as the Hearing Examiner for Blaine County for four years.

She obtained her Master of Laws in Taxation (LL.M.) from NYU in order to give her clients more options for sophisticated estate planning and to provide tax sensitive guidance to clients in their business and real estate transactions.

Jill, a native of Los Angeles, enjoys hiking, cycling and skiing with her husband and their two daughters. She is also a certified Yoga Instructor. Jill splits her time between her favorite places – the mountains in Sun Valley, Idaho, the city of San Francisco and her hometown of Los Angeles.

Jill currently is a member of the Board of Directors of the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation.
