A will is a final written declaration of the “testator,” who names a person, called the “executor,” to manage the distribution of the testator’s estate for the benefit of the named “beneficiaries” at the time of death and according to the testators expressed instructions and intent. The primary goal of having a legally accurate and enforceable will is to avoid the unpredictability and expense of having to resolve contested issues through Probate court.
Having your will and trust carefully drafted by an experienced elder law attorney will help you avoid probate. To learn more about how to avoid probate, schedule a free initial consultation by calling: 818-538-2095 or simply contact us online.
Generally, conservatorships are established for people who no longer have the mental capacity to make important decisions concerning their own welfare. For many elders, the loss of capacity can arise from normal aging or brought on by progressive stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The elder’s incapacity can also be the result of a serious accident or illness. For many elders, having the court appoint an independent conservator to manage the elder’s affairs is often perceived as an unwelcome intrusion into the elder’s independence and privacy.
One way to avoid having to set up a conservatorship is through a Durable Power of Attorney. This way, someone the testator chooses and trusts can step in on your behalf to make important decisions for you.

If you become incapacitated and can no longer make sound decisions about your welfare, by choosing a previously designated person (POA) to act as your Power of Attorney, the designee will be legally authorized to make legal and financial decisions on your behalf. To learn more about the advantages of having a Durable Power of Attorney, schedule a free initial consultation by calling: 818-538-2095 or simply contact us online.
Under California law, you have the right to express your health care wishes and to have them followed in medical situations when you are unable to make these decisions yourself.
An “Advance Health Care Directive” (Also called a Living Will) confers authority typically to a loved to make important health care choices for you, such as end-of-life care, should you be terminally ill. It also covers decisions such as whether you would agree to undergo diagnostic testing, certain surgical procedures, and whether you are open to organ donation. By having your Advance Health Care Directive prepared while you still have your full mental capacity to make such choices, you can have the people you trust make highly personal choices on your behalf. To learn more about Advanced Health Care Directives, schedule a free initial consultation by calling: 818-538-2095 or simply contact us online.
As elder law attorneys we represent clients that are going through inheritance disputes arising out of probate, trust, and estate distribution proceedings. Ideally, the goal is to avoid will-contests and estate litigation through early and careful estate planning. However, should disputes arise between intended and unintended beneficiaries, you will want to have an experienced elder litigator in your corner.
