Estate Planning

Estate planning offers you a legal way to control who receives your assents when you die, and who manages your finances, medical and personal care if you ever become incapacitated. It is a smart move, no matter how small or large your estate is. Everyone can benefit from having at least a simple will, and many should have additional documents drafted by an experienced estate planning lawyer. As a California Estate Planning Lawyer, David Collier can help you achieve peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be followed. Your legal representation begins with a call to David Collier.

Start now, with an initial consultation at the Santa Rosa law office of David J. Collier. His fees are reasonable, and you will get the individual attention you deserve from a Probate Attorney.

Trust Administration

Persons appointed by a loved one to administer their trust following death or due to incapacity may not fully understand all the regulations that apply to trusts.

In reality, this is a difficult job with many potential problems, including challenges in Probate. Contact David J. Collier, Attorney at Law, to get experienced legal advice for all trust administration matters. Your loved one has entrusted you with a most important job of managing their assets, property and financial affairs after their death, or because they are unable to do so themselves due to incapacity. Do the job right with exceptional legal assistance from David Collier.
