Hello, my name is George Derieg. I am a licensed attorney in the State of California.
I started out as a Deputy Public Defender, and I have personally handled thousands of criminal cases. When my wife gave birth to our first child, I quit my job as a public defender while out on paternity leave and started my own practice. I enjoy estate planning.
With estate planning, I get to know my clients and watch their families grow and expand financially and socially. Prospective clients aren't looking for a lawyer to do an estate plan, they are looking for a lifetime relationship with a human being who is reliable, not too expensive, and helps guide them and their assets through their lives in order to prevent a lot of very expensive and avoidable consequences.
The consequences of doing nothing include, probate which is very expensive, potential conservatorships, beneficiaries paying a large amount of money to the goverment in estate taxes etc...
My office will create a probate acoiding estate plan. But we do so much more, we will sit down with you and with your assets and find out what your goals are, what the best type of estate plan is needed. I have written hundreds of estate plans, and no two estates are the same, and we do not use boilerplate.
My law office is devoted to provided quality legal representation that exceeds clients expectations. I am very approachable, and easy to get along with. My goal is to make sure you leave my office sleeping better at night.
In the event you need probate services, I am your attorney. I have handled probate cases throughout the entire bay area, and Northern California. Probate can be complicated, and it is in your best interests to hire a lawyer who knows what he/she is doing. Probate cases have the potential of lasting years. I make sure that my probate cases don't last longer than one year, and I prefer to handle them within 6-7 months.
If you need an estate planning attorney, or a probate attorney, I invite you to contact my office today.
