Santa Cruz Family Law Attorney

Estate Planning

The Law Office of Thomas S. Stinson also offers services in the drafting of estate plan documents such as wills and trusts, and assists families with the administration of estates upon a loved one’s passing. Drafting documents to effectuate an estate plan offers the opportunity to dictate how an estate is bequeathed upon death. When a person dies without such documents in place, California has procedures that will dictate how a deceased person’s property will be distributed. This is called intestate succession. Drafting documents such as wills and trusts and creating an estate plan avoid this scenario. Depending on the size of an estate, and the assets involved, estate planning can also present opportunities to implement tax avoidance strategies. Tom’s education and corporate finance background gives him the propensity to understand the complex issues considered in estate succession planning and can effectively counsel on available options to best effectuate individuals’ and families’ desires to bequeath their estate.
