Clients seeking experienced legal counsel to handle critical estate law cases find professionalism, dedication and skillful representation at our law firm. Attorney Amy Gostanian is certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization in estate planning and probate law. All of us at the firm — lawyers, paralegals and support staff — are committed to meeting our clients' needs. We aim to help clients protect assets through meticulous application of the law and careful analysis of unique issues affecting each case.
Our practice areas also include will contests, court accountings and prosecution and defense of claims of negligence by trustees, executors, and agents under financial powers of attorney. The Law Offices of Amy Gostanian handles spousal property petitions, Heggstad Petitions, 850 Petitions and other complex remedies to legal problems involved in estate litigation.
In addition, we help clients through the processes of creating and updating estate plans. A carefully drafted will or trust can prevent will contests and probate litigation. A revocable living trust can facilitate a smooth transfer of assets at a time when a family may be under stress after the death of a loved one. With knowledge of what can go wrong, we can help craft the plan to avoid those minefields.
