Susan B. Geffen has helped hundreds of families with their estate planning.

Is a Living Trust just for the wealthy? No. If you own a home, have children, wish to leave your assets to whomever you choose, then you should consider having a living trust prepared for you.

Susan provides a variety of services, including:

Wills and Trusts

Wills and Trusts are legal instruments that you can use to direct who will receive your estate and how they will receive it. Without a Will or Trust in Los Angeles and the South Bay area, your estate will be distributed according to the California’s probate statutes and the fees will be taken from of your estate, which typically takes several months.

Powers of Attorney

When you create a power of attorney in Los Angeles and the South Bay area, you designate a trusted individual to make medical and financial decisions for you in case you become unable to make those decisions for yourself. Often, spouses name each other in powers of attorney.

Advance Health Care Directives

Also called a “living will,” an advance health care directive gives instructions for your family and doctor to follow in case you ever fall into a persistent vegetative state or other situation where you are unable to make your own health care decisions. It lets your physician, family and friends know your health care preferences, including the types of special treatment you want or don’t want at the end of life, your desire for diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and organ donation.

By considering your options early in Los Angeles, you can ensure the quality of life that is important to you and avoid having your family “guess” your wishes or having to make critical medical care decisions for you under stress or in emotional turmoil.

My father found Susan's Elder Law advertisement and we called her office to schedule an appointment for consultation for a family trust. Her office asked for basic information to include the address of my parent's home. To my surprise, Susan came to my parent's home rather than have them make the trip to her Redondo office. My parents are 85 and 80 years old. Susan charged us a very reasonable rate, really worked hard to make this as quick and painless as possible and showed considerable patience - considering my parents' ages and health. In the end - everything went well and we were very pleased with Susan's friendliness, professionalism and thoroughness.
Thank you!
