West Contra Costa County Estate Planning Attorney

For more than 35 years, David A. Brown practiced law in the El Cerrito and Richmond area, relocating to the Hilltop Office Park in 2006. Having practiced in the San Francisco and San Pablo Bay areas since 1980, I have developed firm roots in the community and fully understand the concerns of area residents and the necessity of planning for the future. Estate planning is not just about how the estate property is handled after your death, but also ensuring your wishes for health care directives are followed should you become incapacitated. Planning for the future as well as the "what ifs" in life can be one of the most important things you do for your family. You have worked hard all your life and with an appropriate estate plan you can ensure that hard work benefits your loved ones and future generations. The more planning you do now the fewer burdens your family members will have to deal with later on.
