Signing a Contract
Estate & Gift Tax Planning

Estate Planning consists of creating legal documents to dispose of your assets at death and to deal with your health care and incapacity during your lifetime. 

Special Needs Trusts

The Special Needs Trust or Supplemental Needs Trust (“SNT”) provides a unique opportunity to maximize the quality of life for a child with a disability.  

Special Needs Trusts
Elder Law - Living Trust
Elder Law

For those individuals facing long term care in a nursing home, Elder Law Attorneys in California can preserve assets for a well spouse so that he or she does not become impoverished financially. 

Often transferring the family home to a Living Trust can protect that asset from a subsequent Medi-Cal estate claim. The goal is to qualify the incapacitated spouse for Medi-Cal while preserving family assets.
