Rancho Cucamonga
Estate Planning Lawyer

Preserving Your Legacy. Protecting Your Future.

The lawyer at James D. Madden, Attorney at Law is proud to offer estate planning services to our community. Whether you are seeking to establish a will that will give clear direction to your loved ones or a power of attorney that will dictate responsibilities if you were to become incapacitated, our firm is here to help.

Main Reasons You Need an Estate Plan:

  • Clear roadmap on how you would like your assets to be managed and distributed
  • Directions if you were no longer able to make your own financial and health decisions
  • Establish who will be in charge of managing and distributing your assets

Estate planning is more than just creating a will. While it does involve the distribution of assets after your passing, it also concerns decisions during a person’s lifetime—decisions involving finances, taxes, medical care, and more. An estate plan helps protect your rights and safeguard your assets during and after your life.

Create a carefully crafted estate plan to ensure your legacy is upheld!

Do I Need a Lawyer to Help with My Estate Plan?

Many people do not think they need an estate planning lawyer because their estate is small. In reality, anyone can benefit from this service. People who do not plan ahead or fail to create a valid estate plan will be at the mercy of a judge. This means their assets, possessions, and personal decisions rest in the hands of another. Without a valid estate plan, the judge will use intestate succession. The California court must determine how to distribute your assets and who to place in charge of management and distribution.
