Have you heard about an Advance Directive and Power of Attorney, but weren’t quite sure how they worked or whether you needed one?

Have you ever wondered whether the living trust you made a decade or more ago, or in another state, still works?

Have you been told to consider a conservatorship for your disabled family member?

Have you wondered what “probate” is and how to avoid its costs and delays?

If so, you might just benefit from an appointment with one of the elder law and trust attorneys who volunteer their time every Monday afternoon for the Camarillo Health Care District’s senior law clinic.

Each week, seniors and their family members are eligible for three one-hour consultations with a local volunteer attorney experienced in these and related legal matters. Meetings can be in-person, by Zoom, or over the telephone, and there is no charge for the attorney’s time.

  • Estate planning
  • Conservatorship
  • Probate
  • Trust administration
  • Medi-Cal planning
  • Special needs
  • Family law and estate cross-over issues
  • Automobile law

If more needs to be done, such as a trust amendment or court petition, the attorney and client can discuss the costs of those steps and separate arrangements can be made. But for the vast majority of those who book appointments, the consultation is all that is needed to provide needed peace of mind.

Call 800-900-8582 to set up your free, one-hour appointment.
