A Wills Lawyer Who Meets Your Needs in San Francisco & San Mateo

Attorneys dedicated to helping you with your will

Even in complex estate plans, a will is still a central component. The will directs how the other components of an estate plan work together to provide for your loved ones after you are gone. That is why, as part of our comprehensive estate planning practice, our law firm of Fox, Shjeflo, Hartley & Babu LLP offers will drafting services to clients throughout Northern California. An experienced San Francisco wills lawyer from our firm can analyze your financial position, your family situation and your goals — and draft a clear and comprehensive will that meets your specific needs.

A San Mateo wills lawyer provides peace of mind

Many companies offer do-it-yourself form wills, claiming that you can save money by preparing a will yourself without the help of a wills attorney in San Francisco, CA. While this may seem tempting, it can often cost your loved ones in the end. Form wills use stock language that can often be unclear. This can lead to disagreements among beneficiaries as to the meaning of certain provisions. These disagreements can quickly expand into estate litigation, creating strife among your loved ones and putting a severe financial burden upon your estate.

In addition, form wills are not always completely comprehensive and may not address all the property in your estate. When the terms of the will do not cover estate property, the property must be distributed by percentages to family members in accordance with the California Probate Code. The probate process can lead to confusion and disputes over specific pieces of property.

When you work with a San Francisco wills attorney from Fox, Shjeflo, Hartley & Babu LLP, you can mitigate these risks. Our clients know that they can count on their will to be drafted by an experienced professional to meet their specific estate planning goals. Our estate planning attorneys work with clients to learn the details of their financial and family situation to construct an estate plan and will that addresses all their concerns.
