We also provide expert legal advice and representation in the following areas:

  • Trust Amendments

  • Trust Administration

  • Wills

  • Powers of Attorney

  • Health Care Directives

  • Joint Tenancy Transfers

  • Guardianships

  • Conservatorships

A Revocable Living Trust is often an effective estate planning tool which warrants your consideration.

  • A Revocable Living Trust will avoid Probate thereby saving the average family substantial Probate fees and costs.

  • A Revocable Living Trust will provide for asset management if you become ill or incapacitated.

  • A Revocable Living Trust may help maximize tax savings in larger Husband and Wife estates.

  • Beware:   A Revocable Living Trust is a complicated legal document.  When considering a Trust, always confer with a California licensed attorney.  DO NOT buy “trust” from a non-attorney, “paralegal,” or other salesman.

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Ogilvie & Associates, we offer a confidential free initial consultation.  We take pride in listening to our clients.  We then analyze and discuss thoroughly the legal options available.
