Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning

However a will requires the court process of probate to conclude the decedent's affairs.  A San Francisco lawyer can provide you with alternatives to probate such as a probate avoidance trust.  This can save your loved ones considerable expense and difficulties in settling your affairs and carrying out your wishes.   You should contact a Northern California estate planning lawyer for resolution of these legal issues.
