Trusts and Estates Attorney in Marin County
Scott Lafranchi is an attorney in Marin County who practices in the areas of trusts & estates, real estate, and entity formation. Scott specializes in estate planning, trust administration, and probate. Every adult should have an estate plan with at least a Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and Healthcare Directive. If an adult passes away or is incapacitated without all of these documents in place, then their children may not be in the custody of the preferred guardians, their assets will potentially not be distributed the way they want, and their affairs may be handled by a court instead of by the people of their choosing. Most people in the Bay Area also need a Trust to avoid probate because they have assets worth more than $150,000. Thoughtful estate planning and concise estate administration are essential to caring for your loved ones and protecting your assets.
Mr. Lafranchi’s principal focus is to put his clients at ease in an efficient and ethical manner.
Scott lives in Marin with his wife, Theresa, and their daughters, Alice and Ashley. Mr. Lafranchi’s family came to Marin several generations ago from Valle Maggia, of Canton Ticino, the Italian-dialect speaking part of Switzerland.
Usually, Mr. Lafranchi’s fees for family estate plans (family trust, wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, temporary child care authorization, general assignment, and deeding home to trust) costs about $2,600 total ($330/hour).
$300/hour for all other services except statutory probate fees and evictions ($280/hour).
