Will your spouse be provided for, or will your assets get caught up in the courts? Depending on the type of assets you own and the manner in which they are titled, the court may have to supervise your assets through probate, a long and expensive court process.

We make sure your family has a strong living trust plan for whatever happens. We understand and believe in the value of family and strive to do our best to ensure that yours is safe and well taken care of in case you or your loved one passes away.

We give you peace of mind, helping you avoid the cost and hassle of probate costs and conservatorships. Prior to your assets being distributed to your heirs, they typically go through a very long probate process that spans anywhere from 15 months to 3 years (or longer). This process is very costly as there are legal and executor fees as well as court costs that quickly add up. By having a solid living trust estate plan, expertly drafted, we can help your beneficiaries avoid all these extra fees, thereby allowing them to take full ownership of your assets and eliminating any additional grief, stress, and burdens during a difficult time.
