Estate Planning And Probate Law Lawyers In Earp California

Earp, California is an unincorporated townsite in San Bernardino County in the Sonoran Desert close to the California/Arizona state line at the Colorado River in Parker Valley. It is named for famed western lawman Wyatt Earp who settled in the area with his second wife, Josephine Sarah Marcus. Earp was living in Vidal in 1906 and staked claims for both copper and gold mines near the base of the Whipple Mountains that same year. Earp spent the winters of his last years working the claims, and died in Los Angeles on January 13, 1929. Though there was never an actual town on the site of Earp, there is a post office near Earp's mining claims at the eastern terminus of Highway 62 near Parker, AZ signed as "Earp, California" with a ZIP code of 92242. For amusement only there is a tiny cemetery showing the fake grave of Wyatt Earp. In regards to telephone communications, the entire region on the California side falls under area code 760. Its location in relationship to the county seat makes Earp the farthest point from the county seat at more than 220 miles (350 km) away. Unofficial alternate names of the area are listed as Drenna and Drennan.

What is estate planning and probate law?

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Estate planning attorneys advise clients on their options for disposition of real and personal property after death, and create any number of necessary documents pertaining to the estate and finances of the client -- including wills and trusts. Estate planning law attorneys also assist clients in setting out their end-of-life health care wishes through living wills and health care powers of attorney.
