Helping you plan for your future with confidence
For over 35 years, the law practice of Roger P. Kokores A Professional Corporation has helped individuals accomplish their estate planning, trusts and estate goals in Palo Alto and the surrounding Bay Area. We provide every client the highest quality legal services in a compassionate, timely, effective, and personalized manner for all types of estate planning situations, regardless of your net worth or the complexity of your case.   

The practice focuses on the following areas:

  • Estate planning ― Regardless of the size or complexity of your estate, we can assist with wills, trusts, guardianships, powers of attorney, advance health care directives, powers of appointment, and other documents to protect you in case of accident, disability, illness or death. 
  • Probate ― We understand how hard it is to begin the legal process after a loved one dies. We can assist and guide you with the entire process of probate in the administration of a decedent’s will or estate if no will, and transferring a decedent’s property to the beneficiaries.
  • Trust administration ― The objective is to ensure the goals and wishes of the trustor are achieved as provided in the trust document while satisfying the requirements of state law. We can assist  trustees with this process.

When we meet, we take the time necessary to get to know you and to understand your situation fully. We educate you on your planning or administration options and carefully explain the work that is needed to meet your objectives. In this manner you can make informed decisions. Together, we determine the best course of action based on your particular circumstances and goals and craft a plan to accomplish your wishes. 

Whether you are making a valid estate plan to protect your family and assets, creating a trust or carrying out a deceased loved one’s wishes in probate, your interests are our top priority.
