Sacramento, CA Firm Handling Wills, Trusts & Estates

Wealth preservation and asset protection by an estate planning attorney

A little planning now can go a long way toward protecting your assets for future generations-and protecting those future generations from costly probate. At the Bedell Law Office, we help clients plan ahead with professional estate planning services that include will and trust drafting, probate administration and litigation, asset protection and tax planning and guidance for executors and trustees. Whether we're drafting a special-needs trust or clarifying the responsibilities of an executor, we navigate clients through the tax implications and legal formalities of estate planning. We serve individuals and couples in Sacramento, San Benito, Placer, Monterey, Yolo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and Alameda counties and throughout Northern California-with extensive experience in estate planning for middle-aged, newly retired and same-sex couples.

While a comprehensive estate plan provides security for you and your loved ones, it requires the meticulous attention and foresight of an experienced attorney. With more than a decade of experience, founding member Jeffrey I. Bedell develops tax-sensitive estate plans that are customized to the unique needs and objectives of each client. From addressing concerns about death taxes to implementing asset-protection measures, we offer:

- Professionalism: Every person's family and situation is different. All our services are focused on your individual situation.

Knowledgeable on a variety of effective estate planning techniques

Estate planning is a complex process that, when performed thoroughly, involves a variety of legal documents and actions. The Bedell Law Office mitigates the potential for ambiguities or unintended distribution of assets by implementing individualized strategies for the following estate planning techniques:

- Wills: An important part of any estate plan, a will reduces the potential for adverse legal, financial and tax consequences to your estate.

- Trusts: Whether used to reduce tax liability or to help avoid the family member disputes so prevalent in probate cases, drafting a trust has several notable benefits for estate planning.

- Probate administration and litigation: Generally necessary in California if a person has more than $150,000 in assets held in their name when they die, probate can be a costly and complicated process.

- Asset protection and tax planning: Through techniques such as gifts of property, insurance and retirement plans, you can optimize the security of your assets and legally deter creditors.

- Responsibilities of executors and trustees: If a loved one dies with a will or trust, the responsibilities of executors and trustees can seem overwhelming without legal counsel.

  • In the wonderful film, "The Descendants" starring George Clooney, an important topic in estate planning is tackled:  incapacity.  Without giving away too much of the plot, part of the story deals with him caring for his wife who is lying in a coma in a hospital bed.  When people think about  estate planning, they tend […]
