Fair Isn’t Always Equal and Vice Versa

Here are some situations in which some parents might think an equal division isn’t necessarily the fairest result.

Our family library is wall to wall to wall books - mostly my husband’s but also some of mine and the kids’ books. These are part of our estate and we’ve made provision for their distribution if something happens to us. Do you have a collection of books or coins or stamps or such? Tell your #estateplanningattorney. She can help you make a plan💁🏻‍♀️ #willsandtrusts #lawyermom #revocabletrust #estateplan

Most of us know about our right to remain silent and not self incriminate from watching cop shows. It’s an important right when it comes to criminal procedures but keeping quiet in other types of proceedings may not be in your best interest. How to know the difference? Ask your #attorney. Having legal counsel is always recommended. And of course, when it comes to your #estateplan it’s best to not be silent but to take advantage of your right to communicate legally and appropriately in protection of your dignity in case of incapacity; your family and finances in case of death. #estateplanningattorney #willsandtrusts #revocablelivingtrust

Are we still decorating our homes for the holidays this year in quarantine? I’ll admit, I’m not a huge seasonal decorator but normally enjoy having a few touches of joy around the house to welcome friends and family. // As you consider the end of the year and #friendsandfamily and #tax planning, it can be helpful to know your #estateplan more than likely won’t change seasonally but if you don’t have a plan, now is a good time to put one in place and if you haven’t reviewed yours with an #estateplanningattorney in years now is a good time to ask for a *free* review.

Fall 2020. Now is a good time to review your #estateplan and make any changes. If you haven’t worked on your own estate plan with your #estateplanningattorney don’t worry, the State of California has one in mind for you. It’s called #intestate #probate and it’s a public court process which may not be what you want and it’ll cost way more than you want and take a lot longer than your beneficiaries want. Want to avoid it? Speak to an #estateplanninglawyer She can help💁🏻‍♀️ #lawyermom #revocablelivingtrusts #willsandtrusts

My kids are getting old enough to be delegated packing their own stuff. Except then we end up with stuff like this: my 👦🏼💙 son packed himself some reading material & fav toys ... & dumbbells...🤔😅😂 What does this have to do with your #estateplan? Even though many clients have been educated to the benefits of having a #revocabletrust they don’t always know what assets go into the trust and how. That is why our clients not only get their plan done with us, they also get instructions on which assets go where and how to title them. #willsandtrusts #nationalsonday #trustfunding #beneficiarydesignation

The very act of preparing your #estateplan is a worthy endeavor: educating yourselves to the various possibilities and working with your spouse and #attorney to ensure your wishes are legally communicated and your joint (& separate) assets are preserved is crucial. Reviewing your plan to make sure it still fits your life and circumstances and assets as they may change is super important. Finding an #estateplanningattorney who will offer her time to review your plan with you every few years is everything! Let us know if we can help be that #lawyer for you💁🏻‍♀️ #willsandtrusts #revocabletrust #lawyermom

Do you have art as part of your #estate? Investment pieces (costly and cultivated) or nostalgic pieces (painted by your kids)? Either way, tell your #estateplanningattorney so she can help you devise them properly. #lawyermom #willsandtrusts #revocabletrust #tangiblepersonalproperty #art #estateart

California traffic is #notorious ... well, at least #precovid19 it was. You know what else is slow, costly, and frustrating? Probate court. Even during #precedentedtimes the courts are so heavily impacted probate cases take a long time but now the backlog and wait times are extraordinarily longer. Want to avoid the #probatecourt? Work with a knowledgeable #estateplanningattorney to draft your estate plan to protect you and your family and your assets in case of your incapacity or death. #lawyermom #willsandtrusts #revocablelivingtrust

As an attorney, I’d love to see the terms and conditions for 2021 because we hope they bring back #precedentedtimes but as a #grownup #human I can advise you there are no promises on how 2021 or even tomorrow will go. So get your #estateplan done because tomorrow is not promised and 2021 is only 101 days away. #termsandconditions #livelife #planyourestate #estate #lawyermom #estateplanningattorney #sufficientuntotheday

When I was a baby lawyer and had a baby daughter, I carried snacks with me everywhere. Snacks consisted of grown up food in smaller pieces - something to broaden her palette but not overwhelm her. If you’ve put off #estateplanning because it’s too overwhelming or too expensive, please reach out to your #estateplanningattorney We can break it down into manageable pieces and keep it within your budget with a finance plan. #lawyermom #willsandtrusts #estateplan

This slide about why clients choose to avoid #probate was accurate when I made it for a seminar #prepandemic Now the issues described in it are even more compacted and complicated. Want to avoid probate problems and complications? Discuss your #estate plan with your #estateplanningattorney and ask if a #revocablelivingtrust is right for you. #lawyermom #willsandtrusts #estateplan

Why I do what I do....

How many of us know adults who would like a career do over? I sure do, but I am not one of them. My career has been better than I expected. Truly! I have raised my kids and supported my PhD student husband and helped friends during their most trying times.

When I decided to practice law, as a young girl with big ideas, I expected I’d work long hours and fight heavy battles in court. Indeed, my first few years of practice I did that. And now I do something even better! I help people avoid court and conflict. You know that saying “an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure?” That is my life-work... my career.

I work with individuals, families, churches, businesses and non-profits to plan and protect their interests and their life-work. I help them avoid, resolve, and maneuver through conflict.

As an estate planning; probate; trust; and administration attorney, I can help you prevent, avoid, resolve, and maneuver your assets and interests to safety.
