Creating a Will in Oakland, California

Alameda County Estate Planning

Whether you have numerous grandchild to think of or just recently got married, drafting a will is a key step to protecting your family's interests. A will allows you to state your final wishes in a clear, official legal document. As an estate planning lawyer, I have helped individuals draft wills for numerous years. I make it a priority to treat you with the respect and attention you deserve, ensuring your estate is taken care of right.

No matter what stage of life you are in, it is important to have some form of will drafted. When you enlist my legal services, you can rest assured that I will carefully review your situation. I want to keep the process as simple as possible for you, covering all the basics while still customizing it to your specific needs. A will allows you to give your family and loved ones peace of mind that your last wishes were followed. Even if you have very little property, you can include guardians, personal items, and any final words in your will.

Including Property in Your Will

A will can designate certain inheritors or beneficiaries you would like to pass on your possessions to.

When you create a will, you can use it to do the following:

  • Leave instructions for pets
  • Name guardians for minors (and any property they inherit)
  • Leave property to heirs (or organizations)
  • Designate an executor

While some wills can include burial or funeral instructions, it may be helpful to create a separate document for this. Your loved ones may not locate your will until several days after your funeral, which can be confusing. Overall, a will is a great tool for naming inheritors or guardians for your children or pets.

If you are ready to draft an effective will, contact my practice today at (415) 944-9406. Download and complete the corresponding intake form before our meeting.
