Estate Planning Attorneys San Diego

Estate planning laws have had to change dramatically over the years. At one time, estate planning meant hiring an attorney and having a will that would go through probate and, if a person was married, titling property jointly with a spouse. It conjured up visions of death and of wealthy families gathered in attorneys’ wood-paneled offices listening to wills being read. It suggested that the wealthy should plan so that they could avoid estate taxes. Changes nationally and in California laws, and the growth of those aged 65+ in San Diego, all contributed to changing views of finance, lifestyle, privacy, nontraditional families, and longevity of life have made estate planning far more interesting and, frankly, more compelling for a larger group of people than ever before.
