California Estate Planning and Elder Abuse Attorneys: The Importance of Having an Estate Plan, Will, and Power of Attorney in Place

ATTORNEY NEWSLETTER

Estate Plans Are All About Protecting Loved Ones

Keep Your Plan Current

The Importance of Powers of Attorney

Estate planning is all about protecting your and your loved ones as you age. Revocable Living Trust arrangements and Powers of Attorney can protect you while you’re alive but no longer able to manage your own affairs effectively. Valid Trusts and Wills ensure that at your death your assets pass to the beneficiaries you choose; without an estate plan the courts will often decide who gets your assets.   The estate planning team at Evans Law Firm, Inc. can work with you to develop the estate plan and Power of Attorney arrangements that are best for you.  Call us today at (415)441-8669.

Whether your estate plan is simple or more complex, our lawyers will help you identify all the issues that may pertain to your particular situation. We will address the issues or concerns you may have about estate planning and advise what steps you need to take to ensure that your assets are disposed of at your death in the way your want them to be.  Advance planning is critical here; too often our litigators see the damage to family and loved ones where there isn’t a valid Will or trust in place that accurately reflects the decedent’s wishes.  You can save your family a lot of heartache and loss by having a valid estate plan in place before your death.

The estate planning lawyers at Evans Law Firm provides the following estate planning packages:

  • Will Package (includes Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and Advance Health Care Directive):
    • Individual $1,500
    • Couple $2,500
  • Living Trust Package (includes Revocable Living Trust, Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and Advance Health Care Directive):
    • Individual $2,500
    • Couple $3,500

If your estate plan requires additional advice or work beyond our basic packages, hourly rates will apply. For a more detailed description of our estate planning services see the Estate Planning page under Practice Areas on our website: https://www.evanslaw.com/practice-areas/estate-planning/.
