Estate Planning

An estate plan is important for every family and individual.  A properly crafted estate plan will ensure that, in your time of need, your loved ones are protected and cared for, your home mortgage and maintenance are managed, your personal bills and legal needs are handled, and your business continues without interruption.  An estate plan will also ensure that the medical treatment you receive honors your wishes and that, in the event of your passing, your loved ones and estate are protected and cared for in the most efficient and effective manner possible.  Finally, an estate plan may also help your loved ones avoid the costly and time intensive probate process.  


LGBTQ Estate Planning

While it is important for every person to establish an estate plan, it is especially vital for LGBTQ individuals and families.  The state and federal laws that govern the rights of LGBTQ individuals and families are complicated and are changing quickly.  While California and federal law both now offer marriage equality, and sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression are protected under California law, it is still imperative that LGBTQ individuals and couples establish estate plans that recognize, honor, and protect their personal needs and wishes, as well as their relationships to one another and to their children.

We are committed to protecting the rights and needs of the LGBTQ community.  We also have substantial experience in crafting estate plans that are tailored to the needs and concerns of LGBTQ individuals and couples.  Our office can help you protect you and your loved ones.
