How We Can Assist With Estate Planning and Administration

Our attorneys know the law. Just as importantly, they know how to apply it in your situation. Founding attorney Denise Eaton May has been in practice in California for more than 30 years. In that time, she has learned every nuance of estate planning and administration. Having represented countless individuals and families in the East Bay, she has also learned how to resolve common issues when building or administering an estate. She can use this legal knowledge and real-world experience to help you or your family confidently face the legal system.

We work closely with you as long as you need legal help. We know it can seem scary if you’ve never had to work through the legal system before – especially tackling end-of-life issues. That’s why you deserve to have a compassionate lawyer guide you step-by-step through the process, whether planning your own estate or ensuring a faithful administration of a loved one’s estate. At our firm, you’ll work directly with your attorney for the duration of your case, receiving individualized legal advice through probate mediation or litigation until your needs are met.

We find ways to streamline the process without compromising your legal interests. When planning your estate, you must be thorough and avoid pitfalls that can lead to misunderstandings. That doesn’t mean the process of building one has to be overwhelming. The same goes for estate administration: your loved one’s wishes are the highest priority, but no family wants to be needlessly dragged through the legal process. We’ll make sure you or your family gets through this time as quickly as possible without compromising the results you’re seeking from a lawyer in the first place.
