Weaving asset preservation within customized and high-quality estate planning.

Welcome to Your Estate Planning Lawyer in San Diego

At Cheever Law, APC I am committed to providing professional, high-quality legal services to clients all over California in the areas of Estate Planning and Business Planning, differentiating myself through:

  • Highest Quality Legal Representation
  • Professional excellence
  • Honest Communication
  • Customized Personal Attention

Cheever Law, APC provides a full range of of estate planning services from the Core Essentials Estate Plan to the advanced Asset Protection Complex Plan. Representation begins with a confidential assessment of property and client wishes on structure of an estate plan.  Thereafter, an analysis of tax impacts, recommendations on alternative techniques and the preparation of documents necessary to carry out the chosen plan will be completed.  For families experiencing the loss of a loved one, I represent trustees, executors and beneficiaries in Trust Administration and Probate matters.

I help families preserve their wealth for future generations, avoid the arduous process of government intervention (probate) by putting a plan in place to ease the pain on family members at death and minimize exposure to estate taxes.  I provide peace of mind knowing your estate plan will actually work for you, your family and your assets in the event of incapacity and at death.  

For families that are suffering the loss of a loved one, I represent the Trustee during Trust Administration or if no plan was put into place, I represent the Personal Representative in the probate and guide the family through the process. 

My practice also includes Small Business Planning and Business Succession Planning.  I work with small business owners to help them navigate the legal landscape and handling all aspects of business planning to ensure your business is protected and your entity is in compliance to avoid any potential personal liability.
