Essential Estate Planning Services
For most of our people, the foundation of their estate plan is a revocable living trust, which transfers your property into a trust for your benefit during your lifetime. You have total control of the assets in your trust during your lifetime. If you become incapacitated, the assets are there fore your benefit. After you pass away, the trustee taking over management of your assets will manage and distribute your assets to whom you want, in the way you want, and when you want, as reflected in your trust.
There are a number of benefits to a revocable living trust. This trust can prevent your estate from being subject to probate, a time-consuming and needlessly expensive process. Another major benefit of a revocable living trust is that you can control it during your lifetime. Our Sacramento estate planning lawyers have many years of experience preparing revocable living trusts. Let us put our experience to work for you.

How to Get Started
When you contact our Sacramento estate planning lawyers to schedule your no obligation initial consultation, our client services representative will provide you with all of the materials you need, including our intake family wealth inventory, where you provide us with an introduction to your personal and financial situation.
Your estate plan should be able to keep pace with your life and changing circumstances. We strongly advise each client to stop in at least once every three years to ensure their estate plan reflects the changes that may have occurred in their lives. For clients who want a more frequent review of their plans, we offer cost-effective client care programs.
We also welcome you to attend one of our estate planning seminars. In addition, we offer weeknight and Saturday appointments. Our Sacramento estate planning lawyers’ goal is to make the estate planning process as easy and convenient as possible. Contact us for a consultation today.
