I hope that you will find the information on this site clear to understand and helpful. It is meant for California residents as I am and have been licensed to practice law in the State of California for more than twenty nine years.

My goal as an attorney is to provide my clients both in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange Counties and throughout the state of California with a variety of estate planning resources, exceptional, budget conscious guidance and unparallelled professional representation.

When you contact my office, I want you to feel comfortable discussing every issue which may concern you and your family. I will provide you with information which you will need to make informed decisions. Whether your needs include writing a will, creating a trust, preparing an Advance Health Care Directive, dealing with the affairs of loved ones who have passed away, helping living relatives who are incapacitated or are in need of greater assistance due to age or medical conditions, helping elders with their personal and financial affairs or planning for the special needs of disabled persons in the form of special needs trusts, I can be of service.

If you are about to become a trustee, executor, conservator or guardian or you are already serving in one of those roles and you need advice about how to perform your duties properly and legally or if you are struggling with complex issues involving disputes about conservatorships, guardianships, trusts or wills my office can be of invaluable help.

With close to three decades of experience preparing simple and complex wills, living trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, powers of attorney, Advance Health Care Directives and living wills for our clients, you can count on clear, practical and cost conscious advice. If a loved one passes away, we will handle the probate administration of the estate or, if the deceased had a trust, the administration of the trust with or without court supervision as the facts require.

My office prides itself on our ability to assists clients who wish to plan in advance for their future needs in the event of a possible future disability or incapacity. Incapacity planning along with estate planning takes into account such things as making arrangements for the continuation of a business you might own upon your disability.

Should the need for probate litigation in a contested case unfortunately arise (including will contests, trust contests, conservatorship or guardianship contests) I am ready to represent you vigorously. I often and successfully represent beneficiaries in litigation cases which regularly are resolved by mediation, arbitration and, as a last resort, court trial.

Having personally served as a trustee of a special needs trust and as counsel for numerous trustees, executors, conservators and guardians over the past more than twenty eight years I bring substantial legal experience and practical familiarity with the law and with the practicalities of these tasks to the table.

In this day and age where change is ongoing and the standards for what constitutes "quality" are seemingly on the decline, I know that there is still a place and a demand for uncompromisingly high legal standards, thoughtful, responsive and deliberate efforts, and tireless work to achieve the best possible outcome for my clientele. I deliver those services daily to my clientele.

If you'd like to discuss how I may be of service to you, please call (818) 501-8355 or contact me online at DavidBaum@probatelawca.com and permit my probate law expertise work for you. There is no better time than now to start planning for your future and for the futures of those who mean the most to you.

I look forward to being of service to you.
