Skilled Help With Estate Administration And Planning For The Future

We can help guide you through estate administration and help you plan for the future. We handle matters involving:

Estate plans: You may wonder why you need an estate plan. A comprehensive estate plan is essential to ensuring that your wishes will be carried out and your family's future will be provided for as you see fit.

Establishment of wills and trusts: No matter the size of your estate, we can help you create documents that clearly state your final wishes.

The probate process: We help guide families through probate, the process which validates a will and allows for the disbursement of an estate. We understand probate law, regularly practice in California's Probate Courts and pay specific attention to every detail. We can even take steps to avoid probate, or at least shorten the amount of time an estate spends tied up in probate.

Getting On The Path To A Brighter Financial Future

We provide a wide range of legal services designed to help people get out of debt and get a fresh financial start, including:

Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection: We will work closely with you to help determine whether you qualify for protection under Chapter 7. When your bankruptcy petition is filed, we will make certain that all eligible debts are discharged and that your assets are protected as fully as the law allows. We handle both personal and small business Chapter 7 filings.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection: If it is determined that a Chapter 13 filing is appropriate for your situation, we will handle all the necessary details to help you establish a plan of debt reorganization. We will serve as your advocate with the trustee, creditors and the court, ensuring that any payment plan is within your means.

Addressing bankruptcy myths: Many people are reluctant to seek bankruptcy help because of the many rumors about what they may lose and the impact on their credit record. We can help answer your questions and clear up any misconceptions about the long-term impact of a bankruptcy filing.

Foreclosure protection: If you have been threatened with foreclosure or if your mortgage payments have become unmanageable, we can help you work with your mortgage company or lender to restructure or modify the terms of your loan, allowing you to remain in your home.
