A Full-Service California Law Firm Committed to Clients in Brentwood and Contra Costa County
Since 1998, the dedicated professionals of the East County Family Law Group have been committed to making the finest legal services available to our clients.
When setting up an estate plan, our job isn't just to draft documents, but to facilitate your wishes and ensure your peace of mind. You can count on us to be a source of sound advice and helpful when drafting documents that protect your legal rights and interests. We make it easy to talk about what none of us wants to even consider. However, there is nothing more certain in life than death. Estate planning is not about the end of life but creating a plan that ensures that the life of your loved ones continues as smoothly as possible.
When a person passes away with just a Will, or no Will at all, the process by which that person's assets are transferred to third parties is through a court-managed process call probate. While most of our clients avoid probate by preparing a living trust, many others do not do so requiring that person's estate to go through probate, which can be a confusing, frustrating and time-consuming process. We are here to help you through that process.
When a person passes away leaving a trust, a successor trustee steps in to manage and administer the trust, gathers and consolidates trust assets, pays trust expenses and distributes assets as directed by the terms of the trust. However, being a successor trustee of a trust, especially a trust you may not have any involvement in the past, can be overwhelming. We help and advise you regarding this process and give you peace of mind that the process is being done in a competent and efficient manner.
