Comprehensive Estate Law Services
Anyone with children, a home or investments needs to have an estate plan. When this important step is skipped, then California law makes important decisions on who gets what. Failing to take time for estate planning can also cause disputes among loved ones.
I am estate planning attorney Rossana Mitchell. At my Chino Hills firm, the Law Offices of Rossana Mitchell, I use my experience to help you complete a comprehensive estate plan tailored just for your needs. My firm helps Los Angeles-area couples and families from Riverside and Orange counties to the Inland Empire.
The Components Of An Estate Plan
Because the personal and financial situation of each client is different, I will work to understand your goals during an initial consultation. Based on your needs, the estate plan may include:
- A will with a guardian provision for young families
- A living trust that allows control over assets during a lifetime and avoids probate
- Financial power of attorney and medical directives
If you have an estate plan already in place, it is a good idea to review it after finalizing a divorce or the birth or adoption of a baby. Planning is essential after any remarriage that blends families as well.
Why Disputes Arise After A Death
Often, when proper planning has not been completed, disputes are more common. Even when there is a will, arguments among siblings may come up. For instance, was a parent competent to alter provisions in the last years or did an executor properly account for all the estate property?
In many cases, I can negotiate a solution that meets your goals. But when required I know how to pursue estate litigation with the strongest argument to support your position.
