Welcome to Walnut Creek Elder Law - California Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorney

Welcome to the Law Offices of Michael J. Young. Our firm provides estate planning, Elder Law estate planning, long term care planning and planning for preservation of assets for individuals and couples. We also provide legal services for probate and trust administration, and assistance regarding Medi-Cal issues.

Our estate plans are specifically designed and tailored for each of our clients’ needs and goals. We view estate planning from two perspectives: the first is from the perspective of what happens if you die; the second is from the perspective of what happens if you don’t die. Although we all die, our senior population is living longer and longer. Mr. Young’s father, at this writing, is in his late 80’s. Several of our clients are in their 90’s. The goal in our estate planning is to have a view toward a very long life for our clients, the care of our clients and the preservation of their assets for themselves and their families for as long as possible.

Alzheimer’s disease unfortunately affects many of our clients. The estate plans regarding these individuals not only involves the preservation of assets for long term care, but also the involvement of family members and others who may ultimately care for the senior clients.

Walnut Creek Elder Law is located in the San Francisco bay area. Surrounding cities include Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Danville, San Ramon, Pleasant Hill, Brentwood and Concord. If you or a loved one lives in the bay area and needs to consult an attorney, please contact us.
