Free, No-Obligation Consultation for Youngman Ericsson Scott Clients

Are your estate documents up to date? Over time, assets change, the family evolves, and health issues arise—often rendering plans dangerously obsolete. Significant changes in estate law came in recent years (including the 2021 Prop 19 changes to Prop 13!) which may well require adjustments to your plan. We are happy to meet with Youngman Ericsson Scott clients for a free consultation via phone or Zoom. Contact us with the form or just give us a call at (925) 930-6000.
