ESTATE PLANNING

Thatcher | Law focuses on Estate Planning for families with small to medium sized estates.

Most of us struggle just to manage the day to day realities of our lives and that it is often hard to think about planning for a future that hard to imagine.  But if you have children, it is your absolute responsibility as a parent to think about and plan for their future -- even if you can't be in it. With proper estate planning, you can ensure that your children are protected.  From naming guardians, to establishing a trust to manage the assets that they may not yet be ready to control you can take control of the future and ensure that you remain an active part of your loved one's lives, even when you can't be there in person.

As part of our commitment to providing affordable legal services, Thatcher | Law provides Estate Planning Packages for a flat fee, with financing options available.  The necessary documents are reviewed in the article, Estate Planning Documents Every Parent Should Have and What They Do

Laura L. Thatcher's practice areas include Estate Planning, Bankruptcy and Family Law. Ms. Thatcher is committed making legal representation accessible to everyone. She is active in local charities and and maintains strong ties to the community.

She has been a member of the South Bay community for over 30 years. Her law practice is an extension of her ties to the South Bay.

Laura Thatcher has always helped her friends and neighbors with their legal needs. Her services included:

Preparing estate plans including living trusts and wills | Forming corporations and LLCs | Assisting with bankruptcy filings | Writing prenuptial agreements

Focusing her work on family issues was the driving force behind starting her own firm.

Her hobbies include baking, entertaining, reading, hiking with her family and playing with the family dog, Pepper and their three cats.

THE THATCHER LAW GROUP

Providing legal help to my family, friends and neighbors has always been the most meaningful part of the work I do. Since 2009, I have dedicated my practice to helping families in my community with their legal issues -- first as a solo practitioner, then with a partner and finally as the manager of The Thatcher Law Group.

The most important focus of The Thatcher Law Group is to help resolve the issues which affect your family. We are here to help you protect to your children and loved ones by creating responsible estate plans.   The Thatcher Law Group also assists families struggling with financial issues, from helping negotiate settlements with creditors to assisting with bankruptcy filings.  We are also available in family law related issues: whether you need legal assistance in the creation of a new family by drafting or reviewing prenuptial agreements and by helping you "reinvent" your family structure in an uncontested divorce.

Community Involvement

I am a member of the Hermosa Beach chapter of Rotary International as well as Sandpipers, a local community service organization focusing on our South Bay Community.  In addition I sing with the choir at the First United Methodist Church of Redondo Beach.

"I had Laura write up an employment contract for our first full-time employee. It was very imporant to me to protect my intellectural property that I have spent the past 5 years building, but also make sure this employee was treated fairly and respectively. Laura easily achieved both with flying colors. She cares about all her clients as well-- you can feel her passion for the business when you talk to her. I will be using her again and again and again."
