“An estate plan is more than simply a way to transfer assets to heirs after death,” says Steven Oakley, “A well-designed estate plan offers a number of benefits, including tax planning, advanced healthcare decisions, and avoiding costly legal and court battles.”
Oakley also warns against the common estate planning mistakes people make, “Procrastination, incorrectly titling property, failing to update beneficiary plans, failure to use available tax exemptions, and not planning for disability are all pitfalls that can derail families when they need peace of mind the most.” Oakley continues, “It is important to remember that, if you don’t have an estate plan, the State of California and the IRS will create one for you.”
Attorney Steven Oakley received his law degree from UCLA School of Law in 1995 and is admitted to practice before all California courts and the U.S. District Court for the central district of California. He is a member of the State Bar’s Trusts and Estates Section and Wealth Counsel, LLC.
