About Thompson | Von Tungeln

At Thompson | Von Tungeln, A P.C., located in Lancaster, California, we craft thoroughly customized estate plans that integrate our sophisticated understanding of trusts, incapacity planning, and estate and gift tax strategies with your short-term requirements and long-range goals. We also maintain and revise existing estate plans to keep pace with new regulations and your changing circumstances and objectives. For more information, contact an experienced estate planning attorney at our Antelope Valley law firm.

All of our custom estate plans are tailored to your particular needs after we have developed an understanding of your goals, your assets, and your risks. We work with you to make sure you understand your alternatives and the pros and cons of each. Our lawyers will never show you a canned estate plan based on software, simple calculations, and a superficial checklist. We build your estate plan from scratch with your goals and precise concerns foremost in mind every step of the way.
