Estate planning doesn’t have to break your estate.

Many people are afraid to consult an Estate Planning attorney because they feel legal services might be cost prohibitive, or because they feel that their estate is too small to need estate planning.

Neither statement is true. Everyone needs a plan.

 

Practice Areas

Estate Planning

While all attorneys are trained in multiple focuses of the law, we have focused our practice to areas that deal specifically with Estate Planning. Estate Planning is a process designed to help you manage and preserve your assets while you are alive, and to conserve and control their distribution after your death according to your goals and objectives. Everyone needs an estate plan!

Trusts

If you own real estate and live in California, you should probably have a trust. If you have minor children or adult children that have problems with health, dependency or finances you should consider a trust to manage the assets you leave behind for their support.

Wills

A will tells the world how you want your assets distributed when you die. Dying without a will means you have no say over who receives your assets, and can leave your heirs and the court system the complex and costly job of wrangling over who should get what.

Durable Power of Attorney

When someone is unable to manage their own financial affairs a Durable Power of Attorney is necessary. If there isn’t an agent named then it is possible that a court proceeding would be required to allow someone to be able to pay your bills and deal with your financial accounts.

Advanced Health Care Directive

An advanced health care directive authorizes the person you name to make medical decisions on your behalf when you are unable to. If you don’t have one in place then your next of kin will be able to make some medical decisions for you, but there are risks involved.
