Willis, Trusts, Advance Medical Directives, Living Wills, Power of Attorney, Family Trusts and Modifications to existing documents
Michael Norton began writing wills and trusts for family and friends as soon as he passed the bar in 2006. This quickly grew into an area of law he knew well. In 2012 his mother was diagnosed with a serious medical condition and the importance and effect of these documents was on full display.
Our law firm will draft and tailor these documents to your family's specific needs. The boiler plate documents you find or buy online are not tailored to your needs and in some cases are not even legally valid in California. There are steps that must be taken after you receive the document to make it legally valid. We will be sure you have a final, legally valid, document that meets your needs.
Attorney Norton understands the importance of these documents for all people but given that his mom was a nurse, his dad a marine and his close, family ties to first responders, he wants to be sure that those who put there lives on the line for the community, are taken care of. Michael also has 3 kids of his own and understands a parents desire to provide and protect them.
