Advanced estate planning is a necessary step for those who have over $5 million in assets. This type of planning goes beyond a basic will and involves strategies to minimize taxes, protect assets and heirs, and ensure that health care and financial decisions are made according to the individual's wishes. Many people are surprised to learn that their estate is advanced and and should consult with a professional to ensure their assets are protected.
If a loved one becomes incapacitated or can no longer care for themselves, how can you help? And what is the legal process in California that gives you the power and authority to manage their health and personal affairs, along with necessary financial matters? One method provided in California law is a conservatorship.
At San Diego Legacy Law, we believe life is a gift.

When you choose to work with our estate planning attorney, you can be assured that we'll go beyond simple document preparation to help you make informed decisions about planning for long-term care needs, passing assets to heirs, minimizing tax liability, and much more.
Probate is the legal process of settling a person's estate. It typically involves a number of steps, including proving the validity of the will, inventorying the deceased person’s property, paying outstanding debts, and distributing assets to heirs according to the terms outlined in the will.
