Hello, I’m Peter Stone, attorney and counselor at law. My career as an attorney and counselor at law began when I graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara. With decades of experience in the legal field, I specialize in estate planning, wills and trusts, power of attorney, healthcare directives and burial instructions.
Throughout my practice, I take care to always put my clients first in order to provide them with the best legal help they deserve. This is clearly evidenced from my rating of 8.6 by Avvo, based on Avvo’s trusted and propriety algorithm, my Client Distinction Award and BV Excellence award with the highest rating for ethics by martindale.com, the oldest, most reputable and trusted rating agency in the legal field.
I decided to specialize in estate planning, wills and trusts, power of attorney, healthcare directives and burial instructions after having a heart attack. During those trying times, I realized how important it is for every individual to have a binder with all the estate planning, insurance and financial information ready for his or her family, should the worst happen to them.
When my own father died, he did not have a trust, or any critical documents organized. My family was left scrambling to put all the essential documents together. Luckily, my mother pulled through the ordeal with me by her side, and with my help.
As California’s trusted emergency estate planning attorney and counselor at law, my goal is work closely with you to ensure you have everything organized for your spouse and family. This is to ensure that when you are deceased, your Will and Trust will avoid probate, so that it is easy for your family to continue their financial and legal affairs. Regardless of whether the deceased was healthy or sick, I am committed to fulfilling all your estate planning needs.
