Estate Planning

Why should people do estate planning?

A simple starting point – to protect your assets from the reach of probate court.

Let’s do the math.

The probate attorney fees are set by California statute. The current rates are:

  • 4% of the first $100,000 of your estate
  • 3% of the next $100,000
  • 2% of the next $800,000
  • 1% of the next $9 million
  • 0.5% of the next $15 million
  • + Extra fees for more complicated cases

Another important reason is so that you can control how your estate is allocated after you are dead or incapacitated.
