Conservatorship of Estate/Person

Conservatorship of Minors/Special Needs Children

Conservatorship Due to Incapacity

Where estate planning documents were not in place, situations arise where a conservatorship may become necessary. In this scenario, a judge appoints a responsible person or organization (the “conservator”) to care for an adult (the “conservatee”) who cannot care for him/herself or manage his/her own finances. We guide clients through each step of this process to make sure that your loved one is taken care of properly.

Advantages of a Living Trust


Save Time: In California, the average probate lasts 12 months, and can last longer if the estate is contested.


Save Money: Probate fees are established by California statutes. Probate can cost your estate tens of thousands of dollars.


Protect Privacy: A trust keeps your estate matters private, whereas a probate makes them public record.


Provide for Minor Children: A trust allows parents to designate a guardian for minor children and avoid the foster care system.


Avoid a Conservatorship:
If you become ill or incapacitated, your successor trustee can manage your affairs without the intervention of a court.
