Proactive Planning For The Future
When you create an estate plan with the assistance of an experienced estate planning lawyer, you help safeguard your family against the many challenges life may throw at you. A carefully curated estate plan ensures your legacy will be honored and your family provided for no matter what happens. In the absence of a well-organized estate plan, your beneficiaries often lose a significant portion of the assets you intended to leave them to administration and legal fees and taxes. While many people turn to self-help resources to plan for the future, the safest way to guarantee your final wishes are honored is to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who is familiar with California laws and procedures. Attorney Kelsey Quaranto excels at helping clients build comprehensive solutions to their estate planning needs, including establishing revocable living trusts to ensure a smooth transfer of assets.
In addition to planning for your loved ones in the event of your death, it is also important to provide for your own continued personal care should you experience prolonged periods of incapacity. With dementia and other age-related illnesses on the rise, consulting an attorney to prepare for the final season of life has never been more crucial.
Protect your family’s future and make sure your legacy is preserved for the next generation with the help of estate planning lawyer Kelsey Quaranto.

Personalized Guidance Through California’s Probate Process
Managing the estate of a deceased loved one can be a complicated, intimidating, and emotionally fraught process for surviving family members. The California estate administration process can be relatively straight forward, if the decedent left a well-organized estate plan through effective planning, but incredibly challenging when there isn’t a proper plan in place. An estate’s executor or personal representative is tasked with finding and securing all assets, ensuring each asset is distributed to the correct heir, providing proper notification to all interested parties and paying all taxes and debts —all under the supervision of the court. It is a time-consuming and costly process. Fortunately, a probate administration lawyer can help navigate the probate code and rules of court and handle the heavy paperwork.
Under California Probate Code, estate administration involves a three-phase process starting with the appointment of an executor or personal representative and concluding with making final distributions to the appropriate beneficiaries. Probate lawyer Kelsey Quaranto uses her experience and analytical mind to help clients navigate each phase. She also brings compassion to the process. Her goal is to ease the burden of responsibility for the estate’s personal representative and streamline the probate process so that the family can focus on honoring the legacy of their lost loved one.
If a decedent prepared a trust, Attorney Kelsey Quaranto can also guide the trustee through the trust administration process. Similar to the role of executor or personal administrator, the trustee is tasked with gathering all trust assets, filing tax returns, and distributing assets to beneficiaries in accordance with the trust’s terms. Ms. Quaranto can help administer the trust in a fraction of the time and ensure all steps are completed in accordance with California law.
