Helping San Francisco Clients With Wills And Probate

Planning ahead regarding estate issues is very important as a person decides how his or her assets will be distributed upon death.

There are certain steps that can be taken to protect family members and heirs and preserve estates. Effective estate planning can encompass the drafting of a will, power of attorney, trust or other estate planning instruments, as well as the utilization of disability protection measures and estate tax planning techniques. Many parents also want to protect their children's inheritance from the threat of divorce, lawsuits and bankruptcy.

Our office assists clients with their estate goals and with the probate of estates. Contact our law office to discuss your legal needs, including:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Probate and estate administration
  • Conservatorships
  • Administration of living trusts

In our probate and estate practice, our goal is to help clients protect their family members and the people they care about, preserve their assets and obtain peace of mind. A validly executed will, along with other estate planning documents, can enable you to distribute your assets to your intended beneficiaries and make certain that your wishes are respected. Certain estate planning documents, such as power of attorney instruments and advanced medical directives, can protect your assets and your family and address your medical care issues in the event that you should become incapacitated due to injury or illness.

We offer comprehensive services to help guide clients smoothly through the probate process and to avoid unnecessary delays or legal entanglements. In certain cases, we can also help clients take advantage of legal measures designed to avoid the necessity of a full probate.
