Estate Planning for You and Your Family
Everyone needs some type of estate plan to protect their family, to make sure their assets go to their loved ones and for “just in case” documents like health care directives and durable powers of attorney. Most Californians choose a living trust so their family will be spared the high cost and hassles of probate.
Because we are not an online document factory, and not a big impersonal law firm, our attorneys take the time to get to know you and design a custom estate plan just for you and your family. And because we have been doing estate planning for over 25 years, we’ve developed an easy process to make estate planning simple.
We make estate planning simple, not complicated. The best estate plan is one that meets your family's unique needs, that you understand and that you can rely on - not a one size fits all fill in the blank plan. We have helped thousands of California clients protect their families with smart and efficient solutions.

If you don't have children, you can be creative in how you want to distribute your assets, whether to family, friends or your favorite charities. An estate plan will also allow your spouse or others to make health care decisions for you if you can't and to manage your assets for you if you become incapacitated.
