Law Offices of Timothy D. Henry Overview
With a focus on aligning my clients’ affairs so that every imaginable situation is planned for, my clients gain the peace of mind they need to know that their family’s security will be protected in the event of incapacitation or death. Whether you need assistance establishing an estate plan that will safeguard your future and provide for your loved ones when you pass away, or if you need professional guidance through probate proceedings, I have the knowledge and experience to guide you every step of the way.
An estate plan is a powerful financial tool that allows you to remain in control of the future or your finances and assets should pass away. By means of a revocable living trust, you can maintain full control of trust assets during life and you can leave instructions for how they are to be used and by whom, upon your death. Estate planning is an ongoing process which should be a part of everyone’s overall financial plan, regardless of age or wealth. Since no one can predict accidents or illness, it’s better to get started sooner than later, especially if you’re married, have children, or any measurable assets.You simply cannot put a price tag on the peace of mind you gain from knowing that all of your affairs are in order. When the inevitable happens to you, your loved ones will be grateful that you took the time to plan in advance in order to protect them and the integrity of their legacy.
If you have been appointed an executor or administrator of a Santa Clara County estate, I can guide you through the probate process.

Probate proceedings are complex and can take eight months or longer, and it helps significantly to have a legal professional navigating you through the administration process.
