Protecting The People You Love And The Assets You Own Through Thoughtful Planning

Estate Planning in Los Angeles and Ventura CountiesAt the Law Offices of Esther Hopkins, P.C., we focus on estate planning, business planning and closely related areas. In essence, we help our clients find answers to tough questions, such as:

  • How can I ensure that my loved ones are protected and provided for in the event of my disability or death?
  • How can I protect my assets, and the assets that I leave to my heirs, against creditors, predators and other potential threats?
  • How can I prevent family disputes upon my disability, incapacity and death?
  • How can I make sure that people of my choosing will have the authority to make financial and medical decisions for me if I become incapacitated?
  • What should I do if my loved one dies or becomes incapacitated?
  • What is involved in probating an estate or administering a trust?
  • What will happen to my business if something happens to me?
  • How can I minimize estate and other taxes and leave more to my loved ones?

To help you find answers to questions like these and many more, we will work closely with you to gain a thorough understanding of your concerns, goals and hopes for the future. We will also explain your options in plain English, not confusing “Legalese.” Then we will design a customized plan to help you achieve your goals, and ultimately, enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a plan in place for the future.
