Maureen B. Isaacson
Maureen was born in Detroit, Michigan, and she has been practicing law for over 30 years. She was in private practice in Michigan from 1977 until 1985, when she moved to California and established a private practice in that state. Maureen is recognized as a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law by the State Bar of California's Board of Legal Specialization. For the past twelve years, Maureen's practice has focused on representing individuals and families in the areas of estate planning, trust administration, probate, elder law, premarital and post-marital agreements, business succession planning, gift giving (charitable or otherwise), entity formation and other related transactional matters.
Maureen assists her clients in estate planning by creating estate plans suited to their needs that will accomplish their goals and honor their wishes in an orderly and tax efficient manner. Whether it's the preparation of a single document, basic plan (which often includes a will, revocable trust, durable power of attorney and an advance health care directive), or a more sophisticated plan (which may include special needs trusts, life insurance trusts, sophisticated revocable and/or irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts and other vehicles for charitable giving, premarital and post marital agreements, cohabitation agreement, business succession documents, etc.) Maureen works closely with the client to ensure the plank is tailored to the clients's needs and wishes.
In addition to estate planning, Maureen also represents individuals, as executors, administrators, trustees and beneficiaries, in the transfer of wealth and administration of decedent's estates, the probate of an estate, or the establishment, funding and/or administration of a trust.
