Wills, Living Trusts, Probate, Trust Administration

The Law Office of David W. Knecht prepares Wills, Living Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, and Advance Health Care Directives to meet his clients’ estate planning needs.  Working in the building that housed the esteemed Law Office of  Dobbins, Thompson, Weir, and Stephenson, Mr. Knecht and his associate attorneys continue to provide estate planning services to the greater Vaca Valley region.

Trust Administration and Probate

At the Law Office of David W. Knecht, we help trustees and executors administer trusts and probates.  For the new trustee or executor, the process can be confusing and overwhelming, especially when added to the already difficult experience of losing a loved one.  We will spend time with you explaining the process and tasks involved in successfully administering a trust or probate estate.

Wills and Revocable Trusts

Mr. Knecht will meet with you to discuss your situation and whether or not a revocable, or living, trust is right for you.  Trusts are often appropriate to achieve goals including probate avoidance, federal estate tax minimization, and greater flexibility in creating distribution plans for specific beneficiaries.

Trust and Will Litigation

We represent clients in trust litigation and will contests, representing trustees, executors, beneficiaries, and other interested parties.
