Probate & Estate Planning

When a loved one dies, it is an emotional and challenging time, as family, friends, and relatives struggle to deal with their loss and handle the resulting legal implications. Often, one of the most pressing and complex legal issues is probate administration—the legal process of transferring the decedent's property or estate upon death. While the probate process can be time-consuming, difficult, and expensive, we work closely with family members to ensure a smooth and pleasant transfer of the deceased loved one's assets and estate. We encourage our clients to consider early planning options and purse viable alternatives that allow for the transfer of assets upon or before death in such a manner that avoids the probate process altogether. Careful estate planning is key and can ease the burden placed on loved ones at the time of your passing, avoiding unnecessary conflict and dispute.

At Valore & Gordillo, we are eager to work with clients and explore the following legal options that are available to them to plan for the later years in life:

  • Revocable living trust
  • Durable power of attorney
  • Living will
  • Special and supplemental needs trusts
  • Right of survivorship

Our clients work directly with a qualified estate planning attorney, who can help them to understand their options and make the best decisions for their situation. With years of significant experience working with clients of diverse backgrounds, including those with modest assets and sizeable estates, we understand the law and the possible pitfalls. We can anticipate potential challenges and draft sound and effective legal documents that protect our clients' assets, ensure their financial wellbeing during the remainder of their lifetime, and provide for the transfer of their assets to the beneficiaries of their choosing under their own terms and in the way that they see fit. Our attorneys take the time needed to become thoroughly acquainted with our clients, their personal situation, and the goals they desire to achieve.

If you are dealing with the loss of a loved one or want to consider early planning options, contact the qualified and experienced attorneys at Valore & Gordillo. Rest assured knowing your future and family are in good hands. Contact us today.
