Weber & O’Neill was established in 2016 when Attorney Shannon O’Neill purchased the existing law firm “Virginia L. Weber, Inc.” from Attorney Virginia Weber Laskowitz, who was in practice for over 36 years before retiring in May 2017.
Shannon O’Neill, a San Diego native, was exposed to the legal profession at an early age as she watched her father practice trust & estates law. Shannon attended San Diego State University where she received her bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and in 2014 was awarded her Juris Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
During law school, Shannon interned for the San Diego City Attorney’s Office in several of their departments, gaining invaluable trial experience. She also interned with the San Diego Family Justice Center, obtaining temporary restraining orders for victims of domestic violence. After passing the California bar exam, Shannon was hired to work with Virginia in her Ocean Beach office for approximately a year and a half prior to Virginia’s retirement.
Shannon’s practice is family focused and she takes a holistic and practical approach to estate planning.
Creating your estate plan during your lifetime will save yourself and your family from unnecessary court and attorney’s fees and will give you an avenue to discuss your wishes with your family members.
Our office can help guide you through this difficult time and can assist in organizing a decedent’s assets so that they may be distributed to the appropriate beneficiaries.
If your loved one passed away without a Trust, and has a home or other piece of real property where title is held in just their name, it is likely that their estate will need to be probated in order to sell the property or transfer it into the name of their heir(s).
If your loved one has estate planning documents such as a Will, Trust and Durable Power of Attorney, then obtaining a conservatorship to manage their affairs may not be necessary.
Guardianship of the Estate is filed to appoint someone to make financial decisions regarding a child’s income, money or other property and to preserve the estate until the child turns 18. Parents and non-parents can become guardians of a child’s estate.
Adoption is the legal process that permanently terminates a biological parent’s parental rights and transfers them to an adoptive parent.
