Estate Planning Lawyer in Ventura
At the Law Office of Robert M. Baskin, you will meet with a skilled Estate Planning Attorney who will thoroughly discuss and review all of your options for preserving and protecting your assets for future generations.
We have substantial experience utilizing a broad range of Estate Planning techniques, including (but not limited to) the following:
Advanced Health Care Directive – to inform your physicians and family members about your wishes regarding the type of treatment you will receive in case of catastrophic injury or illness
Business Succession Planning – to ensure that your family business is able to continue uninterrupted upon incapacitation or death
Charitable Trust Planning – to minimize Estate Tax liability and provide funds for any charitable organizations to which you wish to contribute
Asset Protection Trusts – trusts such as Dynasty Trusts to protect your assets from creditors or third party liability
Medi-Cal Protective Trusts – to preserve your assets for your beneficiaries should you become incapacitated or require long-term medical care or nursing home care
Irrevocable Trusts – designed for long-term management of your assets, and also used for purposes of asset protection
Revocable Trusts – trusts which are set up during the grantor’s lifetime and administered for the grantor’s benefit until death, and naming beneficiaries who will benefit upon the grantor’s death. A properly drafted trust can prevent the expensive costs of Probating a Will upon death.
Spendthrift Trusts – a trust that will provide for the care and living expenses of the named beneficiary, and administered by another individual to ensure that the beneficiary will not spend all of the trust assets in a short time period.
Power of Attorney – a document which gives named individuals the ability to manage your affairs and finances in case of incapacity or severe illness.
Wills – a document that will provide for the distribution of assets through the Probate Court upon death. A properly drafted Trust may be executed in place of a Will to avoid the expense of Probating a Will.

Our goal is always to help our clients create an Estate Plan to protect assets, minimize tax liability, and ensure that your heirs and beneficiaries are provided for properly.
