The Importance of Updating Your Estate Plan
Estate planning laws are changing. It is important that you review your existing estate plan to ensure that it is up to date and that you are receiving the full benefits of these new rules. Depending on your particular situation, it may be prudent for you to revise your current credit shelter trusts in order to take advantage of the new estate tax exemptions.
Our firm can help you review or amend a trust or any aspect of your estate plan. Our goal is to help our clients take the necessary steps to avoid probate and ensure that their wishes are carried out after they are gone. If you are already facing probate or need assistance with trust administration, either as a trustee or beneficiary, we can assist you with this as well. Our Los Angeles estate planning and probate lawyer offers compassionate, personalized legal counsel tailored to your unique needs. Don’t pay the high price of regret; contact the Law Offices of Maria N. Jonsson, PC today.
The Only Thing More Expensive than a Custom-Drafted Estate Plan Is Regret
While many people put off estate planning, believing the process to be complicated and lengthy, we cannot overstate the importance of this legal task. A solid estate plan can protect your family and loved ones from a difficult probate process and conflicts that may arise after you are gone. At the Law Offices of Maria N. Jonsson, PC, we can help you with all aspects of estate planning, including small estate planning, wills and trusts, trust review and amendment, funding your trust, establishing powers of attorney, and creating health care directives and pour-over wills. We also assist our clients with prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, as well as cohabitation agreements, business entity formation, business succession planning, and much more.
