Laguna Beach Estate Planning Attorney

Welcome to Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC, a premier law firm serving Laguna Beach residents with Probate, Trusts and Estate Planning services. We realize that protecting what you’ve spent a life-time acquiring, while providing for your loved ones, is the number one priority.

Probate is a legal process of overseeing the distribution of a person’s estate upon death that is handled through Southern California Probate Courts. The probate process involves gathering all probate property of the decedent, payment of any debts, taxes or claims owed, ascertaining all rights to income, dividends and the like, settling any disputes, and then transferring the remaining assets to designated heirs.

The process of probate process can be long, complicated and unpleasant, and does require that an executor be designated to manage the transfer of property under the court’s supervision. Designating an executor is commonly done through the drafting of a will or revocable living trust. However, in the event there is no will or trust, a court-appointed conservator may be assigned to oversee and authorize end-of-life care decisions and financial affairs.

As experienced probate lawyers, we know how important it is to you that your final wishes be carried out as you desire. This is why it is essential that you seek qualified legal assistance for your probate administration needs. If your combined personal and real property exceeds $100,000 in value, you need more than a basic will; you need estate planning that ensures your finances and property are administered in accordance with your wishes.

The estate planning attorneys of Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC provide a complete range of estate planning services and options to clients throughout Orange County. We will work with you through the development and implementation of an estate plan that best suits your family and your wishes with dedicated expertise and outstanding personal service.
