Everyone needs estate planning — but not everyone’s estate planning needs are the same. At the Bedell Law Office, we create tailored and effective estate plans for individuals and couples in the greater Sacramento area. Estate planning helps prevent the unnecessary and expensive court proceedings that can occur without the proper foresight. Attorney Jeffrey I. Bedell has experience implementing asset-protection methods to ensure your assets transfer to the heirs you choose. If you have children, Mr. Bedell helps you provide thorough instructions for how they are cared for upon your death or incapacity. No matter what your estate planning needs, the Bedell Law Office preserves your assets for future generations. We serve clients of all backgrounds in Sacramento, San Benito, Santa Cruz and throughout the Northern California region.
Many of our clients are middle-aged people who have accumulated assets over the years and want those assets distributed properly when they’re gone. The Bedell Law Office drafts comprehensive estate plans to help clients protect hard-earned assets such as houses, cars, bank accounts and investment accounts. We thoroughly address concerns such as assigning a personal guardian to children under 18 and specifying the distribution of assets among your spouse, your grown children and other beneficiaries, such as a charity. To ease the burden on your family should you become incapacitated, we help you create durable powers of attorney and a health care directive. We draft, review and revise revocable trusts to prevent a costly probate, and we advise you on various trusts and gift-giving plans to reduce estate taxes.
