Trusts and Estates

Our San Jose, California trusts and estates attorneys take our clients step-by-step through the estate planning process, from the basics to the most complex planning concepts. We work to remove uncertainty by guiding our clients through the range of wills and trusts available to meet their needs and wishes. Based in Silicon Valley, our trusts and estates practice extends throughout California.

Our consistent approach is to protect and preserve estate assets for our clients and their future beneficiaries, as well as to assist families through the process of trust administration. By taking the appropriate estate planning steps, our clients’ wishes are carried out and their estate planning goals are attained. For clients choosing trust planning, we also are able to avoid the public, time consuming, and costly process of probate.
