Estate Planning

Careful and creative estate planning is crucial to preserving your wealth for your family’s future. Whether or not you realize it, you have an estate that will be subject to default laws of taxation and distribution that may not align with how you desire your estate to be distributed. As a consequence, your assets may be exposed to unanticipated traps that proper estate planning would eliminate.


Proper estate planning minimizes the risks of unwanted or unanticipated exposure of assets. This allows you to be assured that your family and heirs will be secure. Each estate plan needs to be individualized to suit your personal goals. At Ogden Law Firm, PC, our Modesto attorneys are skilled in estate planning and will provide you with the unique arrangement that best benefits you.

Client Reviews

Attorney Daniel Ogden and his staff were such a help during my estate/will planning. I contacted a couple of attorneys and simply did not feel comfortable using them. Not so with Mr. Ogden. He was thorough and knowledgeable, making us feel very comfortable and secure in the decisions we made...

Ingrid B.

If there was ever an attorney or legal office to trust, this is it! Dont bother going around town and getting the runaround from other people who will only partially represent you or overcharge for partial services. Daniel Ogden and his amazing staff are BY FAR the most competent and friendliest...

Jeremy E.

Daniel Ogden is a first class professional who listens acutely and makes great recommendations. Updating our estate documents was executed with skill and expediency. He is a credit to our community and to his profession.
