Hayward Wills and Trusts Lawyer

The Tavare Law Group serves Hayward, Castro Valley, Oakland, and surrounding areas. We provide asset protection, Probate services, estate planning and administration, and trust services for individuals and their families throughout the Bay Area. We pride ourselves on the one-on-one attention that we give to our clients, as well as the money, time, and effort we save them by making sure we have all of their estate needs covered.
Our firm was established in 2012 by estate planning attorney Melanie Tavare. Melanie was raised in Berkeley and has lived and practiced in the Bay Area since then, founding her own firm after working in a high volume firm for years; she decided that this would allow her to spend more time with each client.

 

Our Estate Planning Services
You can rely on The Tavare Law Group for all of your estate planning needs. Some of our many services include:

 

  • Drafting powers of attorney;
  • Probate
  • Creating trusts (living trusts, etc.);
  • Elder law planning (protection of seniors’ assets and healthcare, long-term care planning, Medi-Cal, VA benefits, etc.);
  • Advising estate freezes;
  • Establishing family foundations for charitable giving;
  • Preparing wills and trusts;
  • Asset and estate tax protection;
  • Protection from probate (an expensive courtroom process);
  • Assisting executors and trustees in estate and trust administration;
  • Wealth transfer planning;
  • Addressing trust disputes; and
  • Special needs trusts and conservatorships.

 

Many of our clients come to us before and even during life-changing circumstances, such as after they start a family or a business, lose a loved one, receive a long-term health diagnosis, or need to establish guardianship for minor children or children with special needs.

 

Long-Term Care Medi-Cal

Long-Term Care Medi-Cal helps pay for skilled nursing care for eligible seniors over the age of 65, disabled individuals, or those who receive Supplemental Security Income. However, in order to qualify, applicants can not own more than a certain amount of non-exempt assets, and work-related retirement plans are also taken into account when determining eligibility. Working with an attorney will help ensure that a senior member of your family receives assistance from this program.

 

Contact Us Today

It is important to get started on estate planning as early as possible and to keep your estate planning documents updated as your circumstances change. The last thing that you want is to leave your loved ones and their futures unprotected. Contact us today for a free consultation to find out more about our services; we do not simply meet with families and provide them.
