Estate Planning Firm in Southern California
Protect Your Loved Ones' Tomorrows — Starting Today
Our attorneys help clients in Southern California craft conscientious and comprehensive estate plans. Establishing an estate plan can be an act of love, because these plans also allow clients to protect their loved ones. This is achieved by ensuring that their wishes will be carried out rather than the default procedures set forth by the state in the event of a death or inability to care for oneself.
Our estate planning firm can help you safeguard your legacy with any of the following:
- Wills: A will is a legal document that designates how you want to distribute your estate and to whom. Having a properly crafted will and revising it routinely can minimize any potential conflicts or disputes between family members.
- Trusts: A trust dictates the transfer of property to your designated beneficiary. Trusts can also be a good way to avoid probate, which is costly and time-consuming. With trusts, you can benefit from more privacy, estate tax benefits, and legally binding asset distribution.
For some people, having both a will and a trust offers more protection over all aspects of your estate. At Wadhwani & Shanfeld, we have seen firsthand the negative results an improper or non-existent estate plan can have on family members and one's legacy. We encourage you to protect your family and your loved ones by taking action today.

Plan Your Estate with Our Southern California Estate Planning Attorneys
If you have questions about setting up an estate plan, our firm can help you. There is a common misconception regarding estate planning that individuals have to be wealthy, elderly, or ill. This is not the case. No matter what type of assets you own – personal collections, cars, bank accounts, homes – you should consider estate planning. These legal documents are designed to protect your assets, distributing them to whoever you wish. They can also establish guardianship, conservatorship, or powers of attorney should you be unable to make decision, or pass away.
As hands-on attorneys, we work closely with clients to create basic estate plans. Learn why we have over 15,000 satisfied clients and a strong record of success. Call Wadhwani & Shanfeld to discuss your estate goals in a free case consultation!
