Estate Planning, Simple Wills & Trust

Compassionate Estate Planning Lawyer in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties

will or trust
Estate planning is a duty that should neither be taken lightly nor neglected. Any adult who has property or other assets should look into options for wills and trusts. Doing so is essential if you care about protecting your loved ones and providing for them in the event of your passing. The Law Offices of Margaret S. Tillinghast can provide a lawyer to assist with the process and help you establish a plan. The benefits of hiring an attorney to help create an estate include:
  • Controlling how assets are distributed
  • Preventing probate from becoming necessary
  • Reducing or eliminating estate taxes
  • Establishing heirs 

Setting up Wills and Trusts Through Mediation

A mediator to help establish a will or a trust can greatly simplify the process. Mediated estate planning services can help families negotiate the process. A trust allows heirs to bypass probate, whereas a will typically goes through the probate court. Generally, trusts are more expensive than simple wills. 

Serving the San Francisco and San Mateo Areas

Many people neglect responsibilities such as estate planning because they do not think it will be a necessity anytime soon.
