There is a good chance that on certain matters I won't be the absolute rock bottom cheapest attorney you will find. However, I hope that my particular expertise, my accessibility to my clients, and my predictable, no surprise flat fees will lead to a good attorney-client relationship with you.
Probate fees are per CA law. Fixing Tax Problems are billed hourly. Wills and trusts prepared for a fixed fee.
In TAXATION, I began my career working for the IRS and I understand it from the inside out. I have a Masters Degree in Taxation and stay up to date on the changes in the Tax Law that specifically apply to your problems.
In PROBATE, I am experienced to get through the probate process as quickly as possible so that you can get your money and property as soon as you can.
For ESTATE PLANNING (wills and living trusts), I protect your assets from undue taxes so you can pass more along to your family. I have prepared estate plans for business owners, single persons, married couples with kids and without kids, for grandchildren, for those whose kids have special needs, for U.S. citizens and non-citizens, for small estates and for large estates, and for blended families.
In BUSINESS, you and I will discuss what business structure works best for you. I form corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and partnerships. I write contracts of all kinds. I review documents you already have and can explain to you what they mean. I act as your outside general counsel as-needed.
I have over 30 years experience helping people with their California PROBATES, finding relief and getting protection from their TAX PROBLEMS, or fulfilling their ESTATE PLANNING or BUSINESS TRANSACTION goals. Our work together will be enhanced by good communication and the rendering of services in a timely and cost-effective manner.
