Providing You With Assurance For Your Future

As a skilled estate planning attorney that has served the Irvine, California, and Englewood, Colorado areas for more than 30 years, I have seen a wide range of clients with varying needs, wants, and estates.

You don't have to be "rich" to establish a will or living trust, and you don't need to be near retirement to establish a power of attorney. The sooner you can put a clear, proactive plan in place, the less chance of your family having to go through the complicated and expensive probate process after you pass.

If you own a house, a car, investments and savings, it will need to be allocated once you pass away. Properly creating a living trust that proactively fulfills your needs and desires is the best way to maximizing the benefit to your heirs and prepare for if you outlive your capacity. A proactive living trust plan anticipates your changing needs and does not need to react in this ever-changing world.

Once your child turns 18, they are considered an adult.

Whether you're looking to helping with their finances or ensuring they receive appropriate medical care, my College Bound POA package can prepare for unexpected events and emergencies.
