Shanner Law

Estate Planning

Our goal is to provide clients with peace of mind and sound counsel as they plan for the future.  To do this we will prepare for you the fundamental estate planning documents that every person needs, including a living trust, pour-over will, power of attorney, health care directive, and who will take care of your children if that need arises.  As attorneys who have families we know first-hand how critical having these documents is.


If a person dies with a will, or without a will, or without a living trust in California, Probate is the legal process through which that person’s estate is distributed to their heirs and beneficiaries.

Our firm represents surviving spouses and family members through the probate process from start to finish. This can be an especially hard time for the surviving family members and we provide them with the utmost respect and care to see them through this process as easily and as stress free as possible to get them the results and relief they need. Our goal is to take the stress and worry from our clients so they do not need to concern themselves with the court process and instead to focus on their quality of life and well-being.


Our firm has filed over 2,000 bankruptcy cases. We file Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 cases. We file bankruptcy cases to give people fresh financial starts. We derive great joy seeing the stress that is removed when a person hires us and gets a fresh financial start. Filing a bankruptcy ends creditor calls, ends lawsuits, and ends garnishments, stops foreclosures, repossessions and much, much more. The bankruptcy laws are fundamental rights provided to us by The United States Constitution. Our firm will thoroughly explain these rights to you and help determine if bankruptcy is the right solution for you.
