Davis Estate Planning Lawyer
California Probate Lawyer
"Counseling with consideration, clarity and compassion"
Serving Yolo County, Sacramento County, Solano County and Other Areas Throughout California
Everyone should have an estate plan. Whether you are single, married with a family, or preparing for retirement, a properly drafted and executed estate plan allows you to protect yourself, your family and to provide a brighter future for everyone you care about. Without a proper estate plan, if something happens to you and you aren't able to make health or legal decisions for yourself or your children (if your children are minors), then your wishes, if unknown or not fully understood by others, may not be carried out as you would have liked. However, with a little forethought and the assistance of an experienced estate planning attorney, you can protect your interests and make sure your wishes are known and will be followed.
At the Law Office of Laura Stodden Parker, I help people throughout California plan for their future transitions. Having a proper estate plan put in place now will contribute to continued positive future relationships among family members as well as relieve a great deal of the stress and emotion that accompany related decisions. My goal is to help clients protect their hard-earned assets for family, friends and the charitable organizations they want to benefit. I'm focused on creating a plan that is specifically tailored to meeting the needs of you and your family.
Protecting Your Assets by Planning Your Future
In my office, my priority is to help you prepare an estate plan that fully reflects your situation and your wishes. After hearing your story and learning about your family, I will assist you with:
- Drafting an effective will and/or trust that defines your wishes.
- Selecting appropriate individuals to serve as your trustee, executor, agent for healthcare, or as guardian for your children.
- Planning now to avoid probate, and related expenses.
- Planning for possible incapacity and developing a health care directive.
- Organizing your current finances to minimize estate taxes upon your death.
Whether your estate is worth $500,000 or $5 million, we will create a plan that you feel comfortable with, that you understand, that protects your investments and provides for the future of you and your family.
Why Estate Planning?
Typically, my clients are people who are actively engaged in providing for their families and communities. They wish to leave a legacy behind for those they love and care about, a mark on the world that shows they were a part of it. I find their stories uplifting and their enthusiasm inspiring. And, although it can be difficult to work through the loss of a loved one, I have the opportunity to show families, through their loved one's estate plan, the care and devotion their loved ones possessed for them. These are just some reasons I find estate planning to be a very fulfilling area of the law.
