The Law Offices of Ron Marquez

The Law Offices of Ron Marquez is a general practice firm that has served several businesses and individuals in a range of legal cases over the years. We know that every case is unique and complex; thus, we strive to provide personalized counsel in your matters.

If you need an attorney who approaches your legal concerns with compassion and dedication to looking out for your rights and interests, you’ve come to the right place.

Estate Planning

If you own assets, it’s important that you maintain a semblance of control over them even after you’ve departed. This is the best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones. In the event that you’re unable to do so, the management of your estate and assets will prove to be a burdensome difficulty.

If, in your lifetime, you had planned to distribute your assets a certain way but failed to do so, it may lead to trouble for your intended heirs later on. The attorney at the Law Offices of Ron Marquez makes sure you’re prepared for any unforeseen circumstances that would jeopardize your estate and assets. We handle your will or trust and assist you in your estate planning from the beginning of the process to the very end.

We, at the Law Offices of Ron Marquez, understand the importance of a legal framework that will dictate the future of your heirs and beneficiaries. We’re committed to helping you and are dedicated to working in your best interest.

Wills

If you own certain assets, it’s imperative that you have a will that dictates their division in the event of your passing. If you fail to communicate your wishes, your intended heirs may not receive what you had apportioned for them. In the absence of a will, the laws in your state decide on the distribution of your assets.

Working closely with our attorney, you can devise a will where you designate an executor, beneficiaries, and how your assets must be divided amongst them. We know how daunting and overwhelming this process can be.

That’s why we’re committed to walking you through each step and assuring you’re making the best decisions for yourself and your successors. Not only does our attorney walk you through the process of making your will, but he’ll also assist you in updating and revising it if the need arises.

Trust

Another means of transferring your assets, a trust can enable you to place the responsibility of handling your assets to an individual; this is held with the trustee for the benefit of your beneficiaries.

This is a viable option if you wish for the probate process to be foregone and the division and transfer to happen immediately.  At the Law Offices of Ron Marquez, we work with you to draw up a trust to appoint a trustee and hand over the distribution to them. This revocable document is subject to changes while you—the trustor—are still living.

Our attorney assists you in every way possible to ensure your property and assets are transferred in the way you wish them to be, sealing the deal with a declaration of trust.

Probate

Our attorney guides you in matters that follow the death of a loved one who has appointed you as the executioner for their will. Through the probate process, the will is given legal recognition and the process for the division of your assets commences shortly thereafter.

During this process, we provide you with legal advice on the administration and accounting of assets that needs to be done before it is transferred, in the event that a trust doesn’t exist. This court-administered process is necessary and we are committed to making it as smooth and easy for you and your beneficiaries.
