Practice areas

Probate Estates

When a loved one dies without a will, California law establishes the person's legal heirs.  The probate process is used to transfer assets and distribute a person's estate.

Other Estates

Even if your family member or friend established a will, it still needs to go through probate in some cases.  Even with a living trust, some assets may not be titled in the name of the trust.

Trust Administration

Our firm can advise trustees and beneficiaries about their legal rights and responsibilities.

Probate Litigation

We represent trustees, beneficiaries, and other interested parties in court proceedings so they can stay informed and be heard.

Wills & Trusts

Every adult needs a will to select the person who is responsible for handling his or her affairs after death.  In California, most homeowners need a trust to prevent the need for a costly probate court action after his or her death.

Beneficiary Deeds

California law recently changed to allow property owners to designate a person as the beneficiary of the person's real property.  A beneficiary deed is an alternative to a living trust that is a good option for some people.
