Beverly Hills Trusts And Estates

Beverly Hills trusts and estates are related, though they are by no means the same. Your estate is the sum total of all of your assets, including real estate, financial products, cash, personal belongings, and your share of assets jointly owned. In summary, your estate is everything that does not go with you when you die.

Trusts, on the other hand, are financial estate planning devices which allow a greater part of your estate to be passed, more easily, to your beneficiaries. Upon the event of your death, all assets titled to the trusts (rather than still in your name) may avoid probate. Any assets still in your name or not properly transferred to the trusts must go through probate.

Beverly Hills trusts and estates are the domains of Beverly Hills estate planning lawyers, or any attorney member to the State Bar of California. Any person wishing to enter legal practice in the state must be a member of the State Bar. Additionally, attorneys are not required to limit themselves to specializations within the law, though many do.

Professional Planning for Beverly Hills Trusts and Estates

Planning for Beverly Hills trusts and estates should always be handled by, or in close cooperation with, qualified attorneys. To help people find such attorneys, the State Bar certifies attorney referral services. (Avoid any such un-certified services.) You may also find your friends, neighbors, and business associates more helpful in finding Los Angeles legal help than you might think.
