Estate Planning Lawyers for Laguna Hills residents

Welcome to the estate planning, trust and probate law office of Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC. We believe that estate planning should be aimed at protecting what you have earned and providing for your loved ones. As such, our firm’s goal is to ensure that your estate plan accurately reflects your desires and safeguards your wealth.

Our basic estate planning services for individuals and families living in Laguna Hills include:

  • Revocable Living Trust,

  • Power of Attorney for Financial Matters,
  • Power of Attorney for Health Care (Advance Health Care Directive),
  • Certificate of Trust, Community/Separate Property Agreement (If Married), and

As skilled estate planning attorneys, we can provide the legal help you need, from assisting you with preparing a will or living trust to litigating an estate in probate court.

Probate Administration

Probate is the court-supervised process of proving a will, appointing an executor, and settling an estate. The probate process is designed to ensure that a person’s assets and estate are distributed and transferred in accordance to his/her will upon death, and that the will is valid. It also provides a mechanism for payment of outstanding debts and taxes of the estate. Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC works with our clients to avoid probate, as well as representing clients during court probate proceedings and with any related litigation.

Asset Protection

Another important aspect of estate planning includes asset protection strategies. Depending on your situation, protecting your assets can involve:

  • Conservatorship avoidance
  • Premarital and post-nuptial agreements
  • Reducing estate taxes and avoiding probate
  • Family limited partnerships and limited liability companies
  • Creating a charitable foundation or charitable remainder trust
  • Insurance trusts
  • Long term health care insurance
