Donald P. Madsen was born and raised in Northern California, and Southern Oregon. He served a two year religious mission in Guatemala, Central America, where he learned to speak Spanish (se habla Español).
In 1989 he attended Brigham Young University where he played baseball for two years before deciding to dedicate himself to the study of Sociology and Law. He graduated with a Bachelor’s in science in Sociology in 1994.
Don attended McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific, while working as a law clerk for local attorneys. He graduated in 1999 where he was recognized by the Sacramento County Estate Planning Council for his achievements.
In 2002 Don began his sole proprietor firm. His focus then, as it is now, is on Estate Planning, including Wills, Trusts, Trust Administration, Conservatorships, and Probate. He is a member of the California Bar Association and the Sacramento County Bar Association. In 2012, he joined his long time friend and colleague Richard Sopp to form Wheatley, Sopp & Madsen, LLP.
Don especially enjoys working with his Spanish speaking clientele. He has been a speaker in the past few years at the Fiesta Educativa, a non-profit educational program put on each year for Spanish Speaking parents that have children with disabilities. He conducts his presentation on Conservatorships in Spanish.
Don’s passions outside of the office include coaching his four children in youth sports. He has coached youth basketball, baseball and football for several years. When he finds time for himself, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing Golf, and Tennis. You can often find Don and family hiking or mountain biking in the mountains of Northern California or Arizona where his dad lives. Don also currently plays Tennis on various USTA teams, and golfs when time permits.
