Vista Will And Trust Lawyer

Many California residents save estate planning for their old age. This is unfortunate, because creating estate plans earlier in life protects you and your family. Estate planning accomplishes more than simply determining who will eventually get your assets. Wills and trusts protect your loved ones from unnecessary taxation, uncertainty, and conflict during probate.

Paul V. L. Campo is an experienced lawyer who can help you and your family avoid the pitfalls that result from poor estate planning.

Don't Wait For The Last Minute To Draft A Will

A will is more than a document that directs the disposition of your property after death. Wills are integral part of comprehensive estate plans. For example, you can designate the guardians of your minor children in your will.

All parents of minor children in North San Diego County should have wills in order to designate a guardian.

If you die without a last will and testament, a court will make final decisions about the distribution of your property and the care of your children.

In addition to drafting wills, we prepare supplementary documents for our clients, such as advance health care directives and powers of attorney.

Do You Need A Living Trust?

While wills are a necessity, many Californians need to protect their assets and heirs through living trusts. It is a myth that trusts are just for the very wealthy.

Trusts offer many benefits as part of a well-designed estate plan, in addition to their traditional purpose of minimizing estate taxes.

We have extensive experience drafting trusts in order to help our clients protect their heirs and save time and money. A trust may allow you or your beneficiaries to:

  • Avoid probate
  • Reduce estate taxes
  • Plan for future medical needs
  • Protect a vulnerable or financially immature beneficiary
  • Make complex distributions, which can be important for blended families
  • Keep the details of the estate's distribution confidential
  • Make donations to charity

At the law office of Paul V. L. Campo, we will help you develop an estate plan that best suits your unique needs and goals.
