California Will & Trust is an estate planning, probate, and family law office serving busy families, seniors, and individuals.
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.
OUR CENTRAL LOCATION
Office Location – from our physical office in downtown Fairfield, California, sitting halfway between San Francisco and Sacramento, we are conveniently located to serve our clients throughout Northern California, from the Bay Area to the Central Valley, from the North Coast to the Gold Country, and even the lower Shasta Cascades. We are in the heart of Fairfield, just six blocks away from the Solano County Superior Court and nine blocks from Highway 12.
Technology and Remote/Virtual Meetings & Appearances – by leveraging today's easy-to-use electronic and virtual technology, many clients discover that they never have to leave the comfort of their own homes (or offices) to meet with us or review their paperwork. In many California counties, remote court appearances have become part of what has been named "the new normal," allowing us to represent clients up and down the State of California directly from our own office without incurring excessive travel costs, and making it easier for parties to appear in court without missing as much time away from work or having to hire expensive daycare. We've made court appearances as far south as San Diego, and as far north as Yreka in Siskiyou County.
Even some of our local clients right here in Solano County find themselves meeting with us online (using a free tool called Zoom), which can easily be installed on a computer, smart phone, or tablet, or accessed with a browser, because it's simply just more convenient for them. Emailing, drop boxing large documents, and e-signatures have become a routine part of our day-to-day practice.
We're Ready to Help – we're here and prepared to assist you when you need us. We'll help you take control of your future and put together that Will or Living Trust estate plan you've been meaning to create. We'll stand by your side and guide you through the Probate process or administering a trust if your loved one or friend has passed away. And we'll help you face the challenges of a family law matter. You can either get started online using the links on this website, or you can call us at (707) 207-4500 or (925) 465-2500.
