Attorney William Hayes provided excellent service and guidance in regards to my inquiry. He was very informative and answered all my questions during the phone appointment. I appreciate it greatly!

Although I did not retain the law firm the staff and William Hayes provided great service and guidance. The phone appointments were easy. Reaching them was easy. The information provided by William Hayes was greatly appreciated. It was unfortunately too late as another member of the family retained an attorney and it seemed it would be handled fairly so I decided not to contest. Thank you kindly to a great law firm who still provided guidance even though they were not retained.

Medi-Cal, Trusts, Probate, & Elder Law

ESTATE PLANNING AND MEDICAID PLANNING ATTORNEYS - LIVING TRUSTS, WILLS, PROBATE, TRUST ADMINISTRATION, ASSET PROTECTION, SPECIAL NEEDS, AND MEDICAID PLANNING

We are estate planning attorneys whose mission is to provide clients who wish to make sure that the assets that they have spent a lifetime creating are protected for the client as well as for those friends, family and institutions who may benefit from those assets one day. When you visit or call our office, we want you to feel comfortable discussing such important issues concerning both you and your family. We want to arm you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your family’s future.

Through the use of Living Trusts, Wills (simple & complex), Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Irrevocable Trusts, Family Limited Partnerships, and Charitable Gifting Strategies, our firm helps families preserve their wealth for future generations, minimize estate taxes, and avoid the expense and nightmare of probate.

LEGACY PLANNING
Legacy Planning is a more holistic approach to estate planning. We help clients preserve their financial wealth and their legacy, including their life stories and family heirlooms, for future generations. Our non-traditional planning methods include special provisions and protections in Living Trusts, Wills (simple & complex), Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Irrevocable Trusts, Family Limited Partnerships, and Charitable Gifting Strategies. This planning also includes minimizing estate taxes, avoiding the expense and nightmare of probate, protecting against remarriage after death of the 1st spouse, and protecting beneficiaries from a possible future divorce.

FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESSES 
Our law firm offers estate planning assistance for the unique needs of Family Businesses. We help clients preserve this important part of their legacy for future generations.

ESTATE PLANNING FOR THE LGBT COMMUNITY 
We offer guidance and assistance to members of the LGBT Community on their unique estate planning needs. This includes assistance in setting up Living Trusts, and Health Care Directives.

Our law firm helps clients create a plan to handle their affairs in the event of an incapacity before they pass away. This includes planning to avoid a Living Probate or Guardianship proceeding.

Our law firm has experience in the complex area of estate planning with IRAs and other retirement plans. We help ensure clients and their beneficiaries are protected by employing tax reduction techniques.

ELDER LAW & MEDICAID SERVICES 
We help clients qualify for government medical benefits legally and ensure their estates are preserved for their families, instead of their nest egg being wiped out by high nursing home expenses.

We help clients who are small business owners and those who are most susceptible to being sued by assisting with Lawsuit and Asset Protection. We also assist with Business Succession Planning and Small Business Planning. Some of the tools and strategies used are Family Limited Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies and Buy-Sell Agreements.

Our firm cares about the welfare of your pets. Your beloved pets need to be protected in the event you are no longer there to take care of them. Estate Planning and implementing a Pet’s Trust can ensure that your pets are provided for after your death.

We offer assistance to clients who have special needs family members by creating Special Needs Estate Plans. These tailored plans help them preserve government benefits while having their loved one cared for in all areas of their life: financial, educational and medical, and most importantly, their emotional and personal needs in the future.

TRUST ADMINISTRATION & PROBATE
We help families who have experienced the loss of a loved one with the ensuing Probate or Trust Administration process.

We help clients preserve their wealth and achieve their long-term financial goals. We work closely with clients’ financial advisors to make sure their estate plan and their financial plan are coordinated and meet the clients goals.

We provide instant access to your estate planning and other vital documents through DocuBank. This service provides 24/7/365 access to your information which family members and friends may need in the event of emergency.
