undefinedHelping You Make Informed Decisions

Educating our client on the essence of estate planning is priority one. It is imperative that you are able to make informed decisions about matters as important as who may make medical decisions for you (if you are incapacitated); who may sign instead of you (as your Power of Attorney Agent); who will take care of your minor children (if you die), or how will your assets get distributed after you are deceased. Information is power and when it comes to estate planning, there is no “do-over” after one is deceased. For this reason, it is even more important to know how estate planning relates to you, your family, and those who depend on you so that you and your family can avoid the ultimate cost—regret!

undefinedWhy Estate Planning Matters

Estate planning issues typically arise following the death or incapacity of a family member, divorce, marriage, the birth of a child, or receiving an inheritance, to name a few. It concerns virtually everyone at some point in their life.

Smart estate planning generally results in an expeditious, cost-efficient, and conflict-free post-death administration. A custom-designed estate plan brings peace of mind and is the responsible thing to do for those who depend on you. At the Law Offices of Maria N. Jonsson, PC, we can identify your most important objectives and implement practical solutions to reach your legacy goals.

undefinedEstate Planning Matters We Handle

Our Los Angeles estate planning attorney is dedicated exclusively to pre-death planning issues, including wills, living trusts, powers of attorney for financial management or health care, prenuptial and cohabitation agreements; and post-death administration matters, such as probate, trust administration, beneficiary, trustee and executor representation, and small estate administration. We bring a decade and a half of experience representing trustees, executors, and beneficiaries and helping families navigate the probate court process.

We can also assist you in modifying irrevocable trusts, working with banks, brokerage firms, insurance companies, retirement plan administrators, oil and mineral rights administrators, county assessor’s offices, the Bureau of Public Debt (related to bond certificates), escrow and title companies, and more.

Our goal is to help you pass on your assets and legacy to your desired beneficiaries. Whether you are setting up a new estate plan, updating an existing one, or administering a trust or estate after the death of a loved one, each administration is unique. We strive to bring it to completion in the most expeditious and cost-sensitive manner.
