ABOUT ANDREA ASTON

TRUST AND ESTATE PLANNING ATTORNEY

andrea aston top estate attorney trust and estate lawyer or estate planning

My goal, in working with you on your estate plan, is to make things easy and stress free, and of course affordable.

 

An estate plan is really important so that you can ensure you

give what you want, to whom you want, when you want. 

 

But, I know most people put off estate planning for two reasons:

1.  Who wants to think about dying. 

2.  The fear that it will be expensive and agonizing because who likes dealing with lawyers.

 

I am here to tell you that I make things easy to understand.  I

want to bring you peace of mind by knowing you have planned properly.  And I treat you like I would treat a loved family-member.

I pride myself on being down-to-earth, being that attorney that  people actually like, while still being very knowledgeable about trust and estate law.

 

I am committed to helping people understand all of the legalese that can come into play when trusts, wills, and estate planning are discussed.  Every client is treated with patience, care and compassion.

I've been a practicing attorney since 1997 and learned the legal system from the ground level. 

 

I began my career as an assistant and worked my way up to an estate-planning attorney with my own practice.

 

My areas of expertise include trust and estate planning, asset protection, business formation, trust administration, and probate. 

I am an animal and nature lover.  I can be found running with my dog or spending time with my horse, which drove me to add an additional specialty to my practice;  specializing in trust and estate planning for clients with animals.

I graduated from John F. Kennedy University School of Law in 1996 and was admitted to the California State Bar in June 1997.

My passion continues to be making things easy for people;  

ensuring their wishes are documented and their estates are protected from undue taxation and misuse as best as possible.

Andrea, thank you for your patience and kindness towards my mother, Joyce, as she updated her living trust. It was a stressful time for her but you made it simple and easy. She walked away from our meeting with a load off of her mind.

Andrea puts trust into trust attorney. She settled my trust dispute against a slick L.A. lawyer and his corrupt fiduciary client.
