An Estate Lawyer & Probate Lawyer for Los Angeles
With over 30 years of experience drafting Living Trusts, the Law Offices of Mark C. Sherwood can help you with all of your Estate Planning Needs. A living trust allows you more control over your assets, greater privacy, and perhaps most importantly, less chance that your family will have to deal with lengthy probate court procedures after you are gone. It allows a designated individual (known as a Successor Trustee) to manage your estate assets and distribute them to your chosen beneficiaries. We tailor make estate planning packages that include your individualized Living Trust, Pour Over Will, Durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Finance, together with all necessary transfer documents to fund your trust.
Our legal Team is dedicated to ensuring that you get the best possible outcome at the best possible price. Take control of your future and call for a free consultation.
Your 'Last Will & Testament' is a document that outlines your wishes with regards to providing for your family members and the distribution of your assets after you pass away.
A will is the primary means by which you can leave property to a person or entity including a blood relative, a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your estate is distributed, making decisions that might not reflect your desires.
Schedule your consultation today to ensure that your wishes will be carried out even after you are gone.
