Proper estate planning is not about preparing a set of “documents”– it’s about providing solutions for people and their loved ones. Nevertheless, many law firms meet only briefly with their clients and churn out boilerplate revocable living trusts with limited provisions and a “one-size fits all” mentality for a cut-rate fee. We don’t. We take the time to get to know our clients and understand their estate planning needs and provide personalized solutions that achieve their particular goals and objectives.
We know that the most important part of the estate planning process is you and your family. We will walk you through the estate planning process and ensure that all of your important estate planning goals and objectives are achieved. We can provide personalized and comprehensive estate planning that will protect your loved ones’ inheritance from being lost to divorce, creditors, predators, lawsuits, and immaturity.
Together, we will create an estate plan that protects you and your family from the nightmare of probate and conservatorship/guardianship proceedings. You will control your property while you are alive, and give what you have to whom you want, the way you want and when you want. You will have peace of mind knowing that in the event you become disabled or incapacitated you and your loved ones will be taken care of in the way you want, and upon your death your accumulated assets will go to your loved ones easily and without unnecessary court costs and attorney’s fees.
The biggest mistake people make is not having a plan at all. If you don’t make a plan, the State of California has a plan for you. It involves public probate, conservatorship and/or guardianship proceedings that are costly, time consuming and may or may not be in accord with your wishes.
