you need a lawyer who handles wills and trusts especially if you have children. Further, you may want a trust to avoid probate.

I recommend Steve Kremer (415) 292-7230 of San Francisco.

In a ordinary course of their practice many family lawyers on some occasions have probably prepared Living Trusts and Wills. Nevertheless, the more prudent action would be to employ the services of a practictioner who performs services in this particular area. There are many possible approaches to be considered and many changes are possible based upon if you are married, not married, how many children you have, if they are minors or adults and related tax complications as related to estate planning to minimize or eliminate future taxes.
