I enjoy making consumer bankruptcy law accessible to regular people in plain English on my Bay Area Bankruptcy Lawyer Blog.
Additionally, I frequently post articles on common California estate planning issues, such as wills and living trusts on the San Jose Estate Planning Lawyer Blog.
I hope you'll check them out, and subscribe to their RSS feeds.
