Make Prudent Decisions Today to Protect Your Hard-Earned Assets Tomorrow.
Estate planning is not only for the wealthy—everybody can benefit from ensuring their assets and finances are properly taken care of after their death. Although California has no death tax, the Federal death tax can be substantial. Without the proper planning, you and your family would be at great risk.
When a person passes on without leaving a clear estate plan, or any estate plan at all, the issue must be resolved through the difficult, stressful, and often emotional legal process known as probate. Probate can be extremely costly, problematic, and time consuming. Arguments are sparked over who should receive what leading to unintended distribution of your assets and major costs for everyone.
Although most people do not like to think of the future and what will happen to their property after they pass away, this is a natural reaction. We encourage you to take the initiative and get your assets and property in order as early as possible. For your own peace of mind as well as for the benefit of your loved ones, attorneys at First Class Counsel can help you avoid these complications by designing an estate plan just for you that explicitly follows your wishes.
