Los Angeles Estate Planning Attorney
Have You Planned for Your Estate?
With estate planning, you make arrangements for the handling upon death of your property which is called your estate. In addition to deciding who gets what, you may establish trusts to provide for children or grandchildren and avoid probate. You may execute legal documents to govern your medical treatment and to manage your financial affairs in the event of incapacity. It is vital that these actions be done under professional guidance to ensure that you avoid any ambiguity and resolve all relevant questions. Otherwise, you run the risk of not achieving what you want, or even worse, having your loved ones squabbling in court over what you intended. Furthermore, poor estate planning can result in unnecessary tax liability. For experienced estate planning in the greater Los Angeles area, you are urged to contact a Los Angeles estate planning attorney.
