Santa Monica Will And Trust Lawyer

Valued Legal Counsel

At the Law Office Of Lawrence H. Damm, I provide smart legal solutions and valued counsel for my clients. With more than 25 years of legal experience and a master's degree in taxation, I help clients with estate planning, probate and taxation, and business entity formation. My office location is convenient for my Southern California clients, and as a one-attorney law firm, I am able to provide my clients with the personalized attention their legal matters deserve.

Estate Planning

As a Santa Monica will and trust attorney, I help clients with all of the essential documents for a comprehensive estate plan, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives

I also provide sound legal counsel regarding estate taxes, gifting tax and other important estate planning considerations.


I represent executors and trustees in a range of probate matters, including:

  • Trust administration
  • Post-death administration
  • Estate tax filing
  • Related tax compliance matters such as fiduciary income tax returns


Tax matters can be quite complex with many potential pitfalls that can go unseen. It is important to work with an experienced tax lawyer. I represent clients in tax matters that include:

  • Income tax
  • Gift tax
  • Estate tax
  • Other tax matters for businesses and individuals

Entity Formation

I provide legal counsel regarding business entity formation in the context of estate and tax planning. Determining the right entity (an LLP, LLC, sole proprietorship, etc.) can be extremely important for tax and estate planning purposes. I can help you understand the benefits and limitations of each type of entity so that you can make informed decisions that will meet your needs and accomplish your goals.
