Hi. I’m Steve Wedeking. I became a Personal Family Lawyer because I am passionate about helping parents make sure their kids and assets are taken care of if the unthinkable happens to them.
I’m here in Lakeside to help San Diego County families in-person and families throughout California virtually understand and navigate the maze of legal and financial decisions you face in protecting your family.
I focus on providing families with the guidance and the support they need to help us create an estate plan that protects their children and safeguards their wealth
Whether you are married or single, a traditional family or a blended one, starting out or looking back on a life well-lived, I will help you design plan that incorporates your history, future goals, and values so that you have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are safe, and your assets are secure for generations to come.
Put another way, we do estate planning that works and we don’t do anything else. Your plan will be based on your family’s dynamics and your needs.
I love educating my community on the topics of wills, trusts, kids protection planning in both in-person events and live webinars. I’ve been featured in SuperLawyers. I am an active member of the Lakeside campus of Skyline Church as well the Lakeside Chamber of Commerce and the San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce.
And, most importantly, I am dad to Jack, Lauren, and Evan Rose and husband to Jamie.
Steve is someone who I instantly trusted and liked from the first moment we met because he is so genuine, knowledgeable, and helpful. It is always hard not to smile around Steve because he is so positive, energetic, and enthusiastic about estate planning which shines through in the services he provides his clients. There are many attorneys out there who can put together estate plans but none that I would trust more than Steve!
We begin with a comprehensive inventory of everything you own, and everyone you love, and consider it all in a working meeting, called a Family Wealth Planning Session, to guide you to clarify your financial life and legacy goals before we draft a single document.
We work with you throughout every life stage to map out the most likely scenarios for you and the people you love, planning for each as your life, the law, and your assets change over time.
Our Life & Legacy Planning process ensures everything that matters most -- from your financial assets to your values, insights, stories and experience -- are captured and documented during your life and cared for over the generations to come.
Transparency in our process, and our fees … all of which are flat fees, agreed to in advance, based on your choices and with no surprises, ensuring we stay on the same side of the table - supporting you to make a lifetime of great decisions - every step of the way.
Our systems help you get clear and organized, overcoming the exact issues that keep most estate plans from actually working when they are needed most. We help you leave your family with a gift of love, and not a mess.
One-and-done estate plans focused only on money are a recipe for a big mess. We help you throughout every stage of life and be there for the people you love, when you can’t be.
