ESTATE PLANNING ATTORNEY

Do you have an estate plan, and if so, is it up to date? Have you lost a loved one who named you as the trustee of their living trust or the executor of their last will? Do you need to transfer real property in California? At the Law Offices of Eric A. Rudolph we deal with these matters – and more.

Everyone should have an estate plan. We can help you set up an estate plan to suit your needs, provide for your loved ones and protect your assets. If you already have an estate plan, have you recently reviewed it? We can help you prepare your estate plan or update your existing estate plan. Whether you need a Durable Power of Attorney, a Revocable Living Trust or a Basic Will, or if you need to amend your existing trust, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you and your loved ones through the estate planning process.

After the passing of a loved one who named you as trustee of their living trust or executor of their last will, certain steps must be taken to comply with the California Probate Code. If your loved one left his or her assets in a Revocable Living Trust and named you as the trustee, you will need to administer the trust. If your loved one left behind a Last Will and named you as the executor, you will likely need to probate the estate. The process for administering a trust or probating a will is very different and requires proper handling by you as the trustee or executor. Trust administration and probate are often complicated and confusing, and can seem overwhelming at times. We can help you minimize or completely eliminate the complications and confusion by offering you competent and capable legal assistance and guidance throughout the trust administration or probate process.
