San Jose, California Estate Planning Lawyer

Nothing gives people peace of mind like a well-crafted estate plan. Estate planning is not just for the rich. Everyone should consider the advantages estate planning offers.
Attorney Manassau will fully explain all of your estate planning options, while advising you regarding which options will make the most sense for your specific situation.
Estate Plan Benefits
Estate planning is more than just drafting a will. It includes the documents that will ensure that your wishes about your own health care are respected even if you are unable to voice them yourself. Estate plans also include documents that will allow the assets you worked so hard to earn or acquire are passed on in the way you wish.
An estate plan allows you to name guardians for your children, remember favorite charities, care for family members with special needs, and preserve your assets as much as possible.
What We Can Do For You?
Our law firm's founding attorney Elizabeth Manassau has an in-depth background representing clients with complex estate planning needs. She tailors her approach based on clients' unique goals in an effort to protect their assets and future. Consistently, she makes the legal process as seamless as possible by clearing explaining to clients their options, regarding:
- Trust administration
- Durable power of attorney
- Advanced health care directive
These documents let the probate judge and others know your wishes regarding transferring ownership of your assets after death. A will also names guardians for your minor children. If you don't take the time to make these decisions, the government will do it for you—at a significantly higher cost.
