Fullerton Probate and Estate Planning Lawyer

Many people are uncomfortable talking about what will happen after they die. Although these conversations can be difficult, they are important ones to have and they shouldn't be put off. At my firm — the Law Office of Barbara J. Dibble — I try my best to put people at ease when talking about their wills or other legal matters.

When you talk with me about estate planning, I will take the time to learn the details of your legal situation as well as your goals. I will explain in clear and simple terms what I recommend to help you achieve your goals, including what will happen with your assets after you pass away and how your affairs should be handled if your health declines and you are unable to make decisions on your own.

Understanding Your Needs

I focus my practice primarily on estate planning and probate matters. I will help you understand the different strategies available to you, and will work with you to determine which approach is best for you. I will then prepare and execute the documents necessary to put your plan in place, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance medical directives.

I handle all matters related to probate and trust administration, so that you can settle the estate of a loved one, or properly manage a trust. I offer guidance in estate tax planning, and represent beneficiaries in estate matters. I also assist clients in setting up California corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs).

I handle a broad spectrum of legal matters and invite you to see my practice area overview page to learn more about the full scope of my practice. I have solid relationships with other lawyers in Orange County; if I am unable to handle your matter for any reason, I will take the time to provide you with a referral to highly qualified outside counsel.
