Helping You Provide For Your Family

Klein DeNatale Goldner, with offices in Bakersfield and Fresno, California, provides a full range of estate planning services. We draft and amend wills, create trusts and advise our clients regarding other estate law matters. Though we provide services to people from all walks of life, our firm has particular experience in estate planning matters involving business owners and high-asset individuals.

Drafting Wills

A will can accomplish many beneficial objectives. It can provide instructions about how your assets are to be distributed after your death. A will can designate a guardian for your minor children in the event of your death. A will can provide a legacy for your children and the satisfaction of knowing that you have done the best you could for them.

When you come to our office, your attorney will listen carefully as you describe your financial situation, your family and your long-term goals. We will then draft a will designed to help you achieve those goals. A significant event in your life, such as marriage, the birth of a child or divorce, should cause you to revisit your estate plan. As your life changes, we can update your will and other estate documents for a reasonable fee.

Creating Trusts

Various types of trusts can be established to accomplish a number of goals, such as the protection of assets, the controlled distribution of assets and reduction in taxation. Our estate trust lawyers have years of experience in the creation and administration of trusts, including:

  • Living trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Life insurance trusts
  • All types of revocable and irrevocable trusts

In addition to creating a trust, our lawyers can also educate trustees regarding their fiduciary duties and trust administration procedures.
