How should you go about choosing the best estate lawyer to craft your Living Trust?
For starters, you need an attorney with specific expertise in California estate planning law. Lots of lawyers do estate plans on the side, and any lawyer can list themselves as “Estate Attorney, California.” But in this rapidly-changing field, part-time just doesn’t work. The laws and tax strategies evolve too quickly, and mistakes can be catastrophic, decades down the line.
For example, the stunning changes brought by California Prop 19 made it far too easy to lose your family home tax caps under Prop 13. In your estate plans, you can accidentally undercut the SSI benefits of a loved one, or fail to properly leverage retirement accounts in your Estate Plan.
