LOS ANGELES WILLS ATTORNEY
Protect your families future and talk with an estate planning attorney today.
Wajda Law Group can assist you in composing your will. Our estate planning attorneys in Los Angeles and Southern California are highly familiar with the proceedings in these jurisdictions. Also referred to as a Last Will and Testament, is a legal document in which you give specific instructions to be carried out after your death. For example, you may direct the distribution of your assets (your money and property), and give your choice of guardians for your children. It becomes irrevocable upon death but can be changed any time prior as long as the creator, called a testator, is of sound mind. In your will, you can name:
- Beneficiaries – This is the person(s) or place(s) you wish to receive your assets. You may name almost anyone or any group (family members, friends, spouse, domestic partner or charitable organizations, for example) as a beneficiary. Once this is done you may list specific gifts, such as jewelry or a certain sum of money, to be distributed to specific beneficiaries. Or, you can list all of your assets as a general gift to a specific beneficiary or class of beneficiaries (ie: your children).
- An Executor – This is the person(s) or institution that you will put in charge of collecting and managing your assets; paying any debts, expenses, and taxes that might be due; and then, with the court’s approval, distributing your assets to your beneficiaries according to the instructions in your will. Your executor serves a very important role and has significant responsibilities. It can be a time-consuming job. You should choose your executor carefully.
- A guardian for your minor children – You may nominate a person to be responsible for your child’s or children’s personal care if you and/or your spouse happen to pass on before a minor child turns eighteen. You may also name a guardian—who may or may not be the same person—to be responsible for managing any assets given to a child, until he or she reaches the age of eighteen.
A will is the basic starting point and something that EVERYONE should have in place. Keep in mind that a will is just part of the estate planning process. And whether your estate is large or small, you need a simple will in place to ensure your wishes are carried out, and your family is protected, beyond your lifetime.

Nicholas M. Wajda came highly recommend by Legal Zoom. After talking to him regarding my situation, I knew I could trust him. He listened and had a caring tone in his voice. My situation is now settled and I couldn't have done it without Nicholas Wajda help. I Highly recommend him. Ps. You can always get him on the phone. Great service.
It took a while to decide to file for bankruptcy. First I had a bad experience with an attorney who was incompetent. Once I found Mr. Wajda I knew I was in good hands. He was very polite and professional from the first time I called him. By the way he answers all his calls himself and returns calls promptly. He made everything go smoothly and in no time I got a discharge of my debts. I recommend him highly. Thank you Nick.
The best!!!! Very smooth transition the best of it was I was able to make monthly payments till I had it paid to start my BK-Chap 7 and then sent reminders to me for a payment what ever I was able to afford that month that helped me out so much that I was able to do the BK now When I would send a email with a question I got a fast response I just got my discharge and I'm very thankful to Michael for his understanding and for letting this entire ordeal be so smooth I highly recommend this firm
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR DEBT AND MOVE TOWARD FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the second most common chapter for individuals. Chapter 13 permits a debtor to repay his or her debts over a period of three to five years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy can also be used to save a vehicle or a home if a debtor has fallen behind on payments. In certain situations, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can even eliminate the junior mortgages on a property.

WHEN SHOULD YOU HIRE A FORECLOSURE ATTORNEY?
When it comes to foreclosure, hiring an attorney early in the process helps ensure that you have more options available to you than what might be available later in the foreclosure process. For example, the lawyer can help you work out a deal with the lender that will allow you to stay in the home, or, if necessary, fight the foreclosure in court. If you wait too long, however, it might be too late to stop the process.
