Not having your affairs in order can lead to expensive and catastrophic results.
Do not wait for an emergency. Estate planning avoids unintended consequences and empowers you to make informed decisions in the best interest of you and your loved ones.

With effective estate planning, we seek to avoid probate court. But issues can arise that must be resolved by a probate court.
We handle a wide range of probate issues, including wills/trusts, trust disputes, financial wrongdoing, elder abuse, conservatorships, and more.
ADMINISTRATION OF WILLS & TRUSTS
Trust administration is a private affair. For trustees and beneficiaries, we provide legal services related to trust administration and the management of trust assets.
For probate estates, we assist executors and personal representatives with the probate process: from opening to closing and all the important steps in between.
We handle various issues involving commercial, residential, and rural property.
Our services include property contracts, leases, codes and compliance, transactions, land use, nuisances, easements and right-aways, HOAs, landlord-tenant, and litigation involving harm to property, persons, and businesses.
We litigate to enforce your rights, to compel lawful action, to prevent harm, to recover money and other losses, and to defend you against adverse claims.
We represent a diverse clientele in a wide range of legal disputes involving trusts and estates, commercial and residential property, and harm to persons, property, business, and finances.
In both civil and probate courts, we have successfully represented individuals and businesses throughout the Bay area and beyond.
If you have a legal issue, question, or concern, you should immediately seek legal consultation.
The law does not favor those who fail to take action to protect their rights and interests. And if you wait too long, the statute of limitations may prevent you from taking legal action. Therefore, do not wait.
