What is a "professional corporation" and what makes it unique?

A "professional corporation" is a corporate form that may render its professional services through licensed individuals in a particular profession. See Corp. Code § 13405(a). In California, professional corporations may only be formed to render services in the fields of law, medicine, dentistry, and accountancy. Thus, professional corporations are also subject to the regulation of the state agency that provides oversight over those professions. For example, a professional corporation formed for the special purpose of practicing dentistry would be subject to the regulation of the Dental Board of California. Similarly, a law corporation, as they are sometimes referred to, would be subject to the regulation of the State Bar of California.

What is "Funding the Trust" and Why is it Important?

After an individual's death, assets titled in the decedent's (the deceased individual) name must go through probate (a process in which the court supervises the distribution of the deceased's assets). By properly forming and "funding" your revocable trust, formal probate proceedings can potentially be avoided.
