Responsive, Personalized Estate Planning Services

Your estate planning attorney at the Law Offices of Michael E. Marquez will work with you to develop a plan that meets your specific needs. We will listen to your concerns and recommend the documents you need to avoid probate and to assure your requirements are met.

Living Trust

A living trust can establish your wishes regarding your real estate, savings accounts, and other assets. A properly prepared trust can save your estate and your family thousands of dollars in unnecessary probate fees. A trust can also protect an estate from excessive estate taxes.

Living Wills, Advanced Health Care Directives and Powers of Attorney

A living will, an advanced health care directive, and a power of attorney can provide clear direction to family members, doctors, and beneficiaries about your final wishes. When properly executed, these documents will reduce the chances for confusion and legal disputes in the future. At our San Mateo County law firm, we draft enforceable estate documents and handle a wide range of estate preparations.

AB Trust

An AB trust can protect your family from paying a large estate tax after you pass away. This trust allows you to pass a large portion of your estate on to your children while still providing for your surviving spouse.

Pre-marital Agreements

A pre-marital or prenuptial agreement can save your assets from equitable division during a divorce. Our firm can draft a document that will help you protect your estate and assets.
