I practice as a Living Trust Lawyer and Estate Planning Lawyer through The Ziskin Law Corp, with the assistance of my wife Hinda, who is not an attorney. While I do the actual planning, Hinda contributes a women's perspective and life experience that many clients find invaluable. It turns out that two heads (particularly when one is a lot cuter than mine) really are better than one. CLICK HERE for My Qualifications
In my Family Wealth Strategies(sm) practice, I feel privileged to help my clients plan for ways to pass their wealth to their heirs in ways that encourage preservation of their values. As part of that planning, I help clients take steps to legally reduce the impact of estate, gift and income taxes. I also help my clients protect their wealth from creditors and predators. Ultimately, this planning results in high quality customized estate and business planning documents that effectuate the planning I help my clients develop.
Hinda and I work with my clients out of our home in Sherman Oaks, California. Most of our consultations are held in our living room, or around our dining room table, with our dog snoring at Hinda's feet. We believe this informal atmosphere contributes to an open and frank dialog with our clients about their desires and concerns for themselves and their heirs. Practicing from our home has the added benefit of giving us an overhead structure that allows us to keep our fees reasonable in the context of the high level of experience and expertise I bring and the amount of time spent making sure clients receive the planning that THEY choose.
I also meet with some clients at temporary office in other parts of California and do occasional consultations at clients' homes (sometimes at an additional cost).
Hinda and I make ourselves available for consultations during both normal business hours, as well as evenings and weekends when we can accomodate special client needs.
