Some people forego valuable attorney representation in preparing their estate planning documents, which ultimately results in their assets going through the costly probate process at death. This is completely avoidable if the investment is made in seeking proper counsel from the beginning.
COVID-19 Update: We are vaccinated and ready to assist you with your estate plan! Live appointments available.
Whether your estate is small or large, we will help you build the proper plan that is suitable to your needs. An initial consultation will allow you to get to know the attorney and will provide you with general legal information, which is not the same as legal advice- the application of law to an individual's specific circumstances. We will be pleased to provide legal advice on your specific situation after you accept and sign our attorney-client engagement agreement. Consultations do not include a review of your existing legal documents.
Once retained, we are your personal and private counsel who you are welcome to freely ask any questions knowing that your matters are confidential and backed by a legal education and experience in California probate courts. After your estate plan is completed, you will have peace of mind knowing that you have a place to return to for legal support in carrying out your important wishes.
The Law Offices of Kate Young, APC, is a boutique estate planning law firm that has been helping families and individuals in the area of wills and trusts, probate, estate planning, and inheritance planning for almost two decades. We assist and advise clients with small, mid-size, and large estates with the preparation of their revocable living trusts and vital estate planning documents. Only a licensed attorney can provide estate planning advice, and when it comes to preparing these important documents, it is important that the process is executed properly and completely. We also regularly handle probate matters, Trust administration, and decedent's estates from our offices in Monrovia, Simi Valley, and Burbank, California.
We currently offer appointments in-person and via phone, Zoom, or FaceTime. We still practice social distancing and require face masks to be worn during all appointments, regardless of vaccination status.
We have been providing quality legal counsel to families and individuals all over Southern California for 18 years. We understand that for most people, the first time that they meet with us is the first time they are dealing with preparing an estate plan, administering a Trust, or even meeting with a lawyer. Thus, we are known to do a little handholding, and explain how things work from a basic, educational point of view.
