WE FOCUS ONLY ON FAMILY-CENTERED LEGAL MATTERS
WILLS & TRUSTS – we help our clients achieve the peace of mind that comes from knowing their affairs are in order, their wishes will be carried out, and that their families will be able to stay out of Probate Court. We build personalized and effective estate plans for them through our refreshingly uncomplicated process — including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Medical Healthcare Directives, Living Wills, and Guardianships of Minor Children.
PROBATE & ESTATES – we counsel and steer our clients through the sometimes confusing and complex probate process of "executing" or "administering" the estate of a loved one, representing them in Probate Court as necessary (when there either is a Will or there is no Will), and advising them outside of court when their loved one passed away with an estate plan in place based on a Living Trust.
FAMILY LAW – we advise and guide our clients through the web of California's domestic relations laws, advising and/or representing them in Family Court with issues such as marriage, divorce, custody, child support, alimony, property settlements, prenuptial agreements, and mediation.
