Let’s Plan for the Future
No one wants to think about the inevitable. Unfortunately, life is unpredictable and the worst may come when you least expect it. Preparing a Trust or a Will to account for your assets is an important undertaking you owe to those you care about. Drafting a comprehensive estate plan will make the difference between letting your loved ones know you care and having them spend exorbitant amounts of money probating your estate. Omid John Afati provides an intimate and personal service to help you feel confident that your loved ones are accounted for long after you’re gone.
Most people don’t realize that a Trustee of a Trust bears the brunt of the responsibilities of preserving its assets, opening them to serious liabilities. All too often Trustees get into trouble because they take some action that can be considered a conflict of interest. Fortunately, if the Trustee preserves the assets of the estate the right way, the Trustee can protect himself or herself from potential lawsuits. Omid John Afati provides legal consultation as well as legal defense in the event a Trustee becomes the target of a legal action.
Losing a loved one can be both mentally and emotionally stressful. Unfortunately, the process of receiving the inheritance isn’t always as straightforward as one might think. If an individual is named as the beneficiary in a Will or a Trust, or is the lawful heir to an estate under California law, then that person is entitled to what was bequeathed to them by the decedent. Omid John Afati provides comprehensive legal representation to ensure that the right actions are taken for the beneficiary to receive the property that they are entitled to.
