We encourage everyone to create, or review and update existing estate plans for peace of mind in the current national emergency

For nearly a quarter century
, we have assisted countless families like yours with their estate planning and succession needs.  Many of our clients consulted with multiple attorneys before choosing to work with our firm, and some of our best clients are lawyers themselves.  The reason for our success is that we continually research best practices in the estate planning field, and can provide more creative options and strategies to meet our clients' goals. 

The sudden illness or death of a loved one is an unthinkable event, and a terrible hardship on the rest of the family.  Should your family also have to worry about going to court, paying bills, and paying taxes too?  The greatest gift you can give your family is your guidance and planning, to help them through the most difficult times in their lives.

Attorneys Ernest Kim and his wife, Catherine Kim, are certified by the State Bar of California as  Specialists in Estate Planning, Trust, and Probate Law

The product of our many years of experience, our estate planning documents include proprietary provisions to minimize taxes, allow for changing circumstances, and protect your family's inheritance.  Utilizing state of the art estate planning software and cutting edge planning techniques, our estate planning documents are the most comprehensive and flexible plans that you can make for your family. 

We're proud to be a firm that doesn't just make trusts and estate plans.  We also work with trustees, executors, beneficiaries and heirs to see them through to the final endpoint of the process, and we have extensive experience with complex trust and probate litigation matters.   We've brought our experience from working on the complete spectrum of trusts and estate issues, to benefit our trust and estate planning clients.  We've seen to it that our Complete Trusts protect the families they were made for, even when unforeseen complications arise.  Our Complete Trusts have withstood or avoided litigation challenges and fulfilled the intention of our clients exactly as they wished, where other trusts have failed.   In this way, you could say that our clients benefit from the mistakes other estate planners have made in the past.

Your estate plan is the most important document you will ever sign.  The plan will dictate the distribution of your entire life's savings, provide for your family in case of your death or illness, and will profoundly affect the success and happiness of your children and future generations of your family.  With planning as important as this, doesn't your family deserve the best legal help available? 

We invite you to consult with us and discover why our clients refer to our trusts as the "complete" trust.
