I am a Conservatorship Attorney in Walnut Creek, California. I have committed my practice to experienced legal services in probate, trust administration, conservatorships and estate administration.

I can help you if you need an Estate Plan, if you are seeking or opposing a conservatorship in Contra Costa County, if you're seeking skilled counsel in probate matters or need help with the legal steps involved with Living Trust Administration after a living trust owner has died.

How I Help:?

I help plan the Orderly distribution of your estate to reduce administrative costs and avoid Probate.

I handle all aspects of the administration from the appointment of the administrator to the disbursement of the assets. I actively seek to avoid unnecessary conflict while efficiently administrating the Estate through final distribution.

I also handle all of the legal steps needed for Living Trust Administration after a living trust owner has died including: advising the successor trustee, preparing all of the legal notices, preparing a complete inventory and valuation for all assets, notifying creditors, paying creditors, and handling creditor’s claims, preparing an accounting and distribution plan, preparing deeds and all necessary legal documents to transfer title, helping in the preparation of the estate and trust tax returns, if the trust law allows, reallocation of the assets into new trusts for the best possible tax benefits.
