Advance Health Care Directive
This advance health care directive document becomes very beneficial during times in which you become incapacitated or unable to make decisions for yourself. With this, you are preparing in advance—deciding who you would want to step in and make those health decisions for you, or even whether or not you would want your organs donated.


Not exactly sure about what a conservatorship is? This occurs when you become unable to take care of yourself. Someone is then appointed to step in, the conservator, to provide for your well-being. Whether you are the assigned conservator or you are inquiring more about the general process, our firm is here to assist!


Who will be responsible for your children if they were to lose both of their parents? To ensure that your children stay protected during any unforeseen instances, a guardianship may be a good thing to look into. Within this process, you are able to appoint a guardian to provide for the well-being of your children.

Last Will & Testament

If you are interested in creating a last will & testament, our Whittier estate planning attorney can. From who you want as your children's guardian to how you want your assets distributed, you are able to incorporate these requests into your will. Learn about the requirements involved and how to get started!

Living Trust

This legal document is created in order to ensure the protection of your assets. By appointing a trustee, they are able to oversee the distribution of your assets to your beneficiaries. From avoiding the probate process to keeping your affairs a private matter, there are many benefits in creating a living trust.

Powers of Attorney

By creating this written document, you are giving authority to an individual to act on your behalf. Whether you need assistance for a certain task (signing leasing documents) or for an on-going task (managing your property), you are given the freedom to specify your request. There is no need to take on these tasks alone; creating a power of attorney may help ease your mind and minimize your burdens.


Probate is a lengthy process involved in managing the affairs of the deceased. The probate court is responsible for overseeing this process and making sure that assets are distributed properly. Whether you are going through this process now or you just want more information, sign up for a free consultation!

Probate Administration

While probate is the legal proceeding in which title from the decedent is transferred to the heirs, a personal representative is appointed by the court to administrate the estate. If the decedent died with a will, this person is designated in the will and called the executor. If the person died without a will, then with probate administration the court appoints an administrator to manage the estate. Executors and administrators have the same duties despite their different title, which is to settle the decedent's estate.

Trust Administration

Trust administration involves the process that goes behind the maintenance of assets within a trust. From abiding by the requests of the trust to the possibility of facing litigation, being a trustee can be an overwhelming responsibility. Instead of dealing with this alone, we can give you the help that you need.
