When someone dies, assets must be collected and bills paid. Whether or not there is a will, a personal representative must be appointed to administer the estate in accordance with the law. If you are facing probate, you need qualified legal counsel to deal with administrative questions, court hearings and tax matters. Our lawyers can help you find the simplest, most cost-effective way to bring the estate to a successful conclusion. Call The Burbank Firm, L.C. for an initial consultation.
Planning your estate now will greatly aid your loved ones. You may avoid probate completely by using a living trust or avoid confusion by having a clearly written will. Your planning can reduce the time, cost, and frustration of probate. Whether you need a living will, living trust, power of attorney or any other document, we can help. Our estate planning lawyers work with you to create an estate plan that carries out your wishes and that is appropriate for your needs.
When adults cannot make decisions for themselves or handle their finances, someone has to take on this responsibility for them. Establishing a conservatorship allows someone to make decisions on behalf of an incompetent adult. At times, living trusts or powers of attorney can accomplish the same goal. We can guide you to the best option for your situation; including petitioning the Court for a conservatorship should it be necessary.
We can help you determine whether a living (revocable) trust, a special needs trust, or some other trust arrangement will best serve your goals by avoiding probate, minimizing tax liability, or ensuring safeguards for the transfer of assets.
Our lawyers also use their skills and financial acumen to aid clients in business law matters. From business formation to liquidation, contract disputes and employment issues, we have decades of experience. If you have a problem, it is likely that we have handled a similar situation for another client. We can identify problems early enough so that they can be avoided.
Commercial Real Estate
Some of our business clients are landlords. It has been our pleasure to assist them with their leases, sales and purchases. We also handle matters for commercial tenants by negotiating leases and helping them resolve landlord disputes.
