Protecting Your Loved Ones and Your Assets

Every individual and family is different, but California State law treats every estate the same way. If you do not have an estate plan in place, your estate will be divided according to state law rather than your wishes.

As your lawyer, Louis Napoli will listen carefully to your questions and goals and help you understand how estate planning can achieve them. Planning your estate will allow you to do many things:

  • Make provisions for your children, grandchildren, spouse and other loved ones
  • Preserve your assets
  • Protect your assets from creditors
  • Minimize estate and gift taxes
  • Name guardians for minor children
  • Make charitable contributions
  • Plan for a pet
  • Establish your wishes should you become incapacitated or terminally ill

It is never too early to plan your estate and protect your loved ones. Contact us to find out how we can help you affordably and efficiently.

Finding the Right Estate Plan for Your Needs

Our estate planning practice is focused on finding the right solutions in your individual situation. Depending on the size of your estate and how you wish for it to be distributed in the future, we will recommend one or more of these documents:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance health care directives (sometimes called living wills)

We will take the time to explain how each document can help you. Depending on your estate planning goals, we will draft one or more of these documents for you. We invite you to visit our page answering some frequently asked questions about estate planning to learn more.
