Planning for the Future

Have you thought about what will happen to your loved ones after you pass? It may seem grim to think about now, but an estate plan will be critical for their future. At the Law Offices of James C. Shields, we want to help you gain peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be carried out after you are gone.

Don't be fooled into believing that only wealthy families need to worry about estate planning; no matter how modest your means may be, estate planning can help you ensure your final wishes are executed according to your will.

Help Your Family Avoid Probate

Estate planning can also help your family avoid the probate process once you are gone. This process can be costly, time-consuming, and difficult to navigate. That is why it is vital to work with an attorney who is intimately familiar with California laws and who understands how the court system works.

Probate deals with outstanding estate debts and the division of property and inheritances. Distributing assets to heirs and beneficiaries must be done according to the will of the deceased or the intestate laws of California, which is why you could greatly benefit from the counsel of an experienced lawyer.
