San Jose Estate Planning Attorney

Helping You Plan for the Future

When it comes to plans for the future of your estate, it is extremely important to be prepared. Failing to make the appropriate arrangements now could end up leaving your loved ones with many financial and legal complications after you pass away or become disabled or incapacitated. With the help of a capable San Jose estate planning lawyer, you could receive the assistance you need to draft up a will that clearly outlines how you would like your assets to be distributed. A skilled legal professional will also be able to help with other important estate planning documents.

At the Law Offices of Timothy D. Henry, our legal team works closely with clients to help them create personalized estate plans that fully reflect their needs and their wishes. We highly encourage clients to write wills, as these are very important legal documents t that establish which assets will be left to which individuals once the previous estate holder is no longer around. Furthermore, wills can be used to establish future guardianship for minor children or incapacitated dependents who are left behind.

They are also many other ways that our firm can help clients plan ahead. Setting up a revocable living trust is an additional way that individuals can ensure that their estates are distributed to their loved ones in a controlled fashion. Furthermore, we are able to help individuals who want to set up powers of attorney (establishing who will make important decisions for the individual when he or she is incapacitated) and advance health care directives (establishing the individual's wishes for future life support and medical treatment).

High-Quality Legal Support for the Probate Process

In addition to individuals who are setting up own wills and estate plans, our team works with many families who are working through estate issues once their loved ones have already passed on. When wills are not created properly, this probate process (or the process of legally validating and executing a will in court) can become overly time-consuming and expensive. We provide guidance throughout the estate administration process, helping our clients to make sure that the right paperwork is submitted to the probate court and that the estate is distributed correctly. Our firm also helps with trust administration.
