C4 Legal Document Assistance is now Lazar Legal Solutions and Mediation


A new website will be coming soon, but until then all services remain the same, as does our phone number:




The Law Office of Joshua Lazar, Esq. & Associates can help with estate planning in Santa Maria but C4 is more affordable


Our team will help you create and file all the appropriate documents to the court to help you get your loved one’s estate transferred properly. If there are issues among family and the distribution of assets we provide mediation services to assist in dealing with those issues. That is all done for a flat fee, not a percentage of the estate.


We know that you have worked hard to buy a house, build a business and create something to pass on to your family and loved ones. Our team can help create documents so that the assets generated by years of hard work can be preserved as your legacy. An estate plan addressing your priorities and needs can make sure that your assets are protected, and ultimately divided and distributed as you wanted them.

Using tools to create documents like wills and trusts, you protect your wealth, and in turn, your family. Additionally, you may need tools to handle other issues, should you become ill or require help, like a medical and financial power of attorney.


  • Living trust: You help your heirs avoid probate for assets such as your home, other real estate holdings, savings, vehicles, business stock and so on.
  • Pour-over will: Used with a living trust, it transfers property intentionally or inadvertently left outside the trust, to the trust.
  • Financial powers of attorney: This document protects you if you are injured or become ill and are unable to take care of your finances.
  • Advance health care directive: With this, you can name someone to make decisions about your health care in the event you become incapacitated. It also makes clear your wishes regarding health care, organ donation, disposition or remains, and whether or not to be resuscitated in the event that you have no chance of recovery.
  • Revocable transfer on death deed: A legal tool enabling you to transfer real property to the person of your choice, revocable by you at any time.


For business owners, a  thoughtfully structured succession plan is an important component of estate planning. These succession plans are critical to the  financial well-being of your family, and the continued success of the business that has provided for them.
