Arroyo Grande Estate Planning & Probate Lawyer
Since starting my legal practice, Douglas M. Buchanan Attorney at Law, in 1997, I’ve offered responsive, personalized legal assistance for Arroyo Grande clients dealing with estate planning and corporate formation matters. I’m laser-focused on helping my clients achieve their legacy and business goals while ensuring that they enjoy a legally stable future. When I work with you, I enjoy taking the time to fully absorb the details of your particular situation, and I firmly believe in proactively communicating all the important legal aspects of your case to you as they arise.
Estate Planning & Probate
I specialize primarily in estate planning and probate matters, meaning that I value the process of getting to know my clients by listening to their goals and concerns. I am here to help you work through an array of important estate planning processes, such as creating a will, establishing a trust, transferring existing real estate to a trust, and putting comprehensive health directives in place. For families who need help navigating the probate process following the death of a loved one, I can offer you trusted legal guidance each step of the way.
In addition to providing exceptional legal guidance in estate planning and probate matters, I also specialize in business and corporate formation. Whether you are structuring a partnership, LLC, or S-Corp, or whether you need help with drafting shareholder or LLC membership agreements, I will work closely with you to make sure we successfully achieve your business goals.
