Estate Planning Attorneys in Santa Monica, California

Many goals associated with estate planning are common across the spectrum of people with substantial assets. Yours may include ensuring that property will be distributed according to your wishes, limiting your tax liability and preserving as much wealth as possible for your loved ones, and putting the right person in charge of your affairs.

Additionally, avoiding probate court, preventing any need for a conservatorship should you become incapacitated, and documenting your personal choices about treatment in an end-of-life situation are also be important objectives.

We can help explain all the estate planning options available to you to ensure that your future is secure and your assets are protected.
