Revocable Trust AttorneyAn experienced San Diego estate planning attorney can structure your assets and wealth to provide protection while reducing or eliminating tax consequences. Many people assume that all they need to plan their estate is a will. Unfortunately, if you pass away with nothing more than a will the consequences include:

  • • a long and costly probate proceeding for your beneficiaries
  • • public exposure of your financial affairs
  • • devastating tax consequences


Only a trust allows you to maintain control over your assets while you are alive and control how those assets will be distributed after your death. Allen Barron, Inc. and Janathan L. Allen, APC provide comprehensive estate planning, tax planning and financial advisory services for clients of all income and asset levels. With offices in San Diego and San Francisco, we represent clients throughout California.

A Complete Estate Plan Protecting Your Assets And Your Beneficiaries

San Diego Estate Planning and Trust AttorneyFor most clients, a complete estate plan will include one or more trusts, a pour-over will, a durable power of attorney for assets and an advance health care directive.

A properly executed estate plan allows you to control your assets while you are alive. It also spells out what you want to happen if you become disabled and unable to communicate your wishes. After you die, your trust can protect your beneficiaries from taxation, creditors and ex-spouses.

Taxation and fees in probate are based upon appraised value, not equity. The cost of an average home in the San Diego area puts the expense of probate exponentially above the cost of a trust. Unlike wills, trusts do not go through the California probate process. This can save you as much as 15 percent of the present value of your estate, which is what most probate lawyers charge to probate assets distributed by a will. When you keep assets in a trust, your family’s private financial information will also remain private.
