Trusts, Estates & Probates

Trusts & Estates

We have over 40 years of combined estate planning experience with estates as large as $350 million. Each estate plan is crafted while taking into consideration the client's goals and culture, transfer taxes, estate taxes, capital gains, gift, generation skipping taxes, and the relevant codes.

Call us today regarding your unique assets and goals. We have a successful history of transferring intellectual property, real estate, companies and various other assets to the intended beneficiary(ies).


Probate is a formal court proceeding that means "proving" the will or establishing the validity of a will. Probate is often necessary to flush out assets of an estate without clear settlor or testamentary intent. Probate also serves to clear transfers for assets in dispute or assets left out of a trust agreement - among other functions. 

Call us today to discuss your probate needs.


Costs vary based on the complexity and the nature of the assets. A typical estate plan in California with real estate should include a Trust Agreement, Pour Over Will(s), Certification of Trust, Comprehensive Transfer Document, General Durable Power(s) of Attorney for Financial Matters, Advance Health Care Directive(s), and transferring the real property (and likely other assets) into the Trust Agreement. A typical estate plan under $3 million will cost approximately $2,375, which includes notary and recording.
