South Bay Area, California, Probate Lawyer
Real Estate · Estate Planning · Probate · Business Law
My name is David E. Simon, and I have been a lawyer for more than 40 years. I represent clients throughout Los Angeles County and the South Bay Area in California. For more information on my practice, please contact my law office to schedule a free initial consultation in probate, estate planning, and personal injury.
I represent clients in the following types of legal matters:
Real estate litigation: I represent buyers and sellers in residential or commercial real estate matters. I am a licensed real estate broker in California, with vast real estate litigation experience, including cases involving claims of breach of contract, breach of sale, nondisclosure issues, broker or agent disputes, boundary line disputes, ownership disputes, and zoning or permit issues. My seven years on the Manhattan Beach Planning Commission give me a perspective not shared by many attorneys.
Estate planning: I have a robust estate planning practice built on helping people create a comprehensive estate plan that outlines health care, financial wishes and a plan for the distribution of assets at death. I draft instruments such as wills and trusts, powers of attorney, guardianships and conservatorships, and health care directives.
Estate administration: I represent administrators and named or potential beneficiaries in the probate process and probate litigation, whether the decedent died intestate or had a will. I assist in obtaining the exemptions from real property tax increases where possible. I have handled many sales of real property from estates if desired by the personal representative.
Trust administration: I assist trust administrators to help them understand their role and obligations, and I offer counsel on how to minimize liability exposure for the estate. I make sure the required legal notices are timely given.
Personal injury: I represent victims of injuries resulting from car accidents, animal attacks, pedestrian accidents, and slips and falls. I also handle premises liability claims and wrongful death suits; in addition, I represent victims of car accidents with uninsured motorists.
Business law: I handle business formation and incorporations, LLCs, corporate business, drafting and reviewing documents.
Civil litigation: I litigate claims such as breach of contract and failure to pay on a note.
