Estate Planning Benefits
Estate planning can give you and your family the assurance and security of knowing that you are prepared for the unexpected. Many people think of estate planning only as a way to prepare for their passing. However, with proper planning it provides instructions to manage your estate should you become incapacitated. Another misconception is that Estate Plans are only for the “wealthy”. Estate planning is not just for the elite few. Proper planning provides benefits to families of any income level.
At the Law Offices of E. Vincent Wood, I will listen to your needs and concerns first and before I begin to develop your customized plan. I will explain the implications of making particular choices so that you can make fully informed decisions. There is no “One Size Fits All” template that works for everyone. Customizing your estate planning documents will ensure both avoidance of the probate courts and that your wishes are carried out.
My goal is to ensure that your spouse, children and all other chosen beneficiaries receive the assets that you intend for them. This becomes even more important when planning in the case of blended families or subsequent marriages.

Custom and Creative Legal Advice
Estate planning in California can be very complex because each plan is unique. I approach each plan differently since the needs of traditional, non-traditional, and of blended families all offer different challenges. Competent legal advice is critical to navigating through each unique plan.
