Why Choose California Probate and Trust, PC
Our practice was opened as MacFarlane Legal in 2009. Dustin MacFarlane’s primary focus was on Estate Planning when he started the firm, however as time passed, he saw the increasing need for a “Senior- Focused” practice in the Greater Sacramento area. Nearly 10 years after opening it’s doors, MacFarlane Legal changed its name to California Probate and Trust, PC. Our goal is to ensure Seniors and their families are prepared and taken care of in the way that they wish to be.
If you’re incapacitated, you don’t want the state of California to make decisions for you. You can’t expect the state to have your best interests in mind, so you need to protect yourself with a Durable Power of Attorney.
There is a myth that estate planning is uncomfortable or depressing, but it’s actually empowering. Your estate attorney at California Probate and Trust, PC will help you clarify roles, distribute assets, and limit taxes.
A revocable trust is a document that allows you to choose how your assets are distributed upon death. You can retain control of the trust while you are alive and even make changes if you wish.
Probate is a long legal process, often lasting over a year. While some estates easily move through probate, others face tax disputes, questions about the will, financial problems, and heavy debt.
Do you want to maintain control of your assets while alive, provide for your loved ones upon death, and make the process as easy for your family as possible? A living trust might be the ideal estate planning document for you.
Making a last will and testament will give you control over how your estate is distributed. Beyond that, you can use your will to determine who will care for your minor children and so much more.

You want what’s best for your family. That includes creating an estate plan, so they won’t have to argue with the courts or each other after you pass away. As a seasoned attorney, R. Dustin McFarlane will help you create the documents you need.

Meet Dustin MacFarlane
Dustin MacFarlane wanted to be an attorney from the age of five when he first started watching Perry Mason reruns with his mother. After he graduated high school and completed a Christian mission in Pennsylvania, his previously undetermined law practice area began to crystallize. During the mission, he developed his faith in God; learned the importance of work, service, and family; and recognized the value of having a higher purpose other than just working for a dollar.
