no commitments up front.

Do you own a home or a car, or have a bank account? If so, congratulations, you have an estate.

This means that upon your passing, your belongings will need to go somewhere. Wouldn’t you rather dictate where your belongings go?

If you don’t put your wishes down in writing, the government has an expensive and inefficient way to distribute your belongings, and it might not be where you want it to go.

If you aren't sure about this process or the cost, simply contact us and we'd be happy to give you some clarification.


In The Know


What They Said


“I have worked with Justin on several different probate matters for my clients. Justin is a wonderful probate attorney. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the probate process, he is very kind and compassionate to clients who are dealing with very difficult situations. I highly recommend Justin as a probate attorney in both California and Nevada.” 

- Jason Lococo

Why It Matters


“Making a Trust is only for rich people.”

“My kids will just figure it out when I am gone.”

"I am in my 40's, I don’t need an estate plan yet, I’m young.” 

These are phrases that we hear far too often when discussing estate planning with families, but it's misconceptions such as these that can create divisive issues within families which will only take your inheritance away from your family, where is rightfully belongs, and puts it into the pockets of probate attorneys. 

Our mission at The Carson Tahoe Estate Planning Center, LLC., is to ensure that your estate avoids probate and goes where you want it to go. 

Do you own a house?

Then it is likely that you need a trust to protect this asset from going to probate.


Do you have minor children?

Then you should create a nomination of guardians for them in the event that both parents are not there. It’s easy to believe that the grandparents will play nice together after such a tragic event, but that is rarely the case.


Do you have family heirlooms that your children might fight over?

Make sure that you designate where specific items go in your will or trust to avoid any possible family squabbles, because yes, they will fight over the smallest of things. I have gone to court over a cuckoo clock, yes, a cuckoo clock. 

We have all heard a nightmare story from a friend or someone who has gone through a probate of their own. They are not enjoyable experiences, and the saddest part is that they are completely avoidable.
