Serving the Needs of You & Your Family

We do everything we can to help you today so that you can protect your legacy tomorrow.



If you don’t have an estate plan, California does.

Do you really want the state controlling your assets?

Instead, work with an estate planning and trust attorney to take control of your estate and…

Avoid Probate

Living trusts are designed to avoid probate. Holding your valuable property in trust has the advantage of not being part of your probate estate after death.

Prevent Unnecessary Tax Burden

A flexibly-drafted living trust estate plan with tax planning can avoid putting an unnecessary tax burden on your beneficiaries.

Provide for Minors

An inheritance left in trust for a minor beneficiary can indicate who is going to manage and distribute the funds as well as the age at which the funds will be turned over to the beneficiary.

Gain Peace of Mind

A living trust can provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your assets and your heirs will be protected in the events that you unexpectedly become unable to handle your own financial affairs.

My wife and I were looking for an Bay Area attorney to handle our estate planning and found Daniel DuRee. He was personable, professional and very thorough. He explained everything in a way that made it easy to understand. We now have everything very well organized in a trust binder and most importantly, we have peace of mind. Norman, Clayton

I was impressed

I was impressed with not only Daniel's knowledge of living trusts but also with how he listened closely to our needs and helped us understand the (complicated) issues in plain English. These are great traits for an attorney. I would definitely go back to Daniel for estate planning needs and will recommend him to others in the future.
