Firm Overview

Attorney Robert P. Bergman is a Board Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law (State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.) In practice since 1980, Bob's practice focuses on estate planning for individuals and families, especially those with young children. Coordinated planning avoids Conservatorship during life, and Probate at death. Asset protection planning is available for the inheritance received by a surviving spouse, partner, children or other heirs, and is also available to protect retirement plans from creditors after the original owner has died.
Bob also specializes in gathering loose assets into trusts after the death of the trust owner without going through the Probate process (i.e. a "Heggstad" petition), and fixing irrevocable trusts that need to be modified or terminated.
