Preston Estate Planning, A.P.L.C. is a full service estate planning law firm that has been in practice for nearly 40 years.
If you establish a living trust, a trusts administration attorney at Preston Estate Planning will help you manage and fund that trust throughout your lifetime. When the time comes, an estate settlement attorney at Preston Estate Planning can resolve any debt or tax issues remaining with your estate and will help your family eventually close the estate. Probate is the legal process that resolves someone’s legal and financial affairs after death. The decedent’s taxes and creditors are paid, and what remains of the assets is distributed to the beneficiaries. Probate and the help of a good California probate attorney are required when someone who owned substantial assets dies without a will or with only a will.
An estate plan will largely determine what happens in life’s most vulnerable moments – those moments when we face disability or death. That’s why it is so important to have the guidance of an estate planning attorney who can help you develop the estate plan that’s right for you and your family. You’ve worked hard for what you’ve earned, so you can’t settle for an estate plan that doesn’t protect your assets and provide properly for your loved ones. At Preston Estate Planning, we have crafted more than 20,000 estate plans over almost four decades of experience.
