Oakland, California Estate Planning Lawyers
Our Law Firm Has Been Serving Clients since 1948!
A good estate plan protects your assets and personal decisions, provides for your loved ones, and gives you peace of mind. Failure to plan appropriately could cost your estate money that would otherwise have been passed on to your heirs. At a minimum, an estate plan should include a will, power of attorney, and health care directive. Depending on your situation and needs, a living trust and other planning options can achieve your goals.
