Estate Planning And Administration

Quality Legal Advice To Help You Plan For The Future

When it comes to something as important as protecting your financial success or smoothly carrying out a loved one's wishes, you simply can't afford anything less than quality, compassionate help from an experienced lawyer.

At our firm, our clients are at the center of everything we do. From helping people who have never thought about their estate plans begin the process of building one, to working with families who feel overwhelmed by the estate and probate administration process, our number one goal is to always give our clients peace of mind that we will protect what matters most to them. We do this in several ways:

  • Our attorneys know the law. Just as importantly, they know how to apply it in your situation. Founding attorney Denise Eaton May has been in practice in California for more than 30 years, and in that time has learned every nuance to the area of estate planning and administration. Having represented countless individuals and families in the East Bay, she has also learned how to resolve the common issues that arise when building or administering an estate. She can use this legal knowledge and real-world experience to help you or your family face the legal system with confidence.
  • We work closely with you as long as you need legal help. If you've never had to work through the legal system before - especially tackling end-of-life issues - we know it can seem scary. That's why you deserve to have a compassionate lawyer guide you step-by-step through the process, whether you're planning your own estate or ensuring a faithful administration of a loved one's estate. At our firm, you'll work directly with your attorney for the duration of your case, receiving individualized legal advice until your needs are met.
  • We find ways to streamline the process without compromising your legal interests. If you're planning your estate, you need it to be thorough and avoid pitfalls that can lead to misunderstandings down the road. That doesn't mean the process of building one has to be overwhelming. The same goes for estate administration: Your loved one's wishes are the highest priority, but no family wants to be needlessly dragged through the legal process. We'll make sure you or your family gets through this time as quickly as possible without compromising the results you're seeking from a lawyer in the first place.
