Welcome to Family Security Law Group, APC

Thousand Oaks Estate Planning Attorneys

At Family Security Law Group, we practice estate planning from a unique perspective, a personal perspective. Our boutique law firm has been cultivated by attorneys who, shaped by their own challenges, have devoted themselves to navigating others over the roads we have traveled. We are here to guide you safely past the pitfalls and accompany you to a place of security, knowing that you

and your loved ones are protected. Our Thousand Oaks Estate Planning firm offers an unparalleled level of service, backed by over 60 years of collective experience counseling more than 1,500 families, but what sets us apart is the comfort and connection our clients feel, knowing that they are working with a lawyer who has stood in their shoes. Our 5 star client reviews reflect our commitment.

Empathy is a Cornerstone of Our Firm’s Philosophy

The firm was created in 1984 from our founder’s deep desire for other families never-encounter the despair his own mother experienced when avoidable estate taxes had to be paid in her parents’ estate. Our current members include an attorney whose husband faced a near death drowning and another attorney, who as a young mother, received a life-altering diagnosis and had to ask herself, “was I prepared for that?” and “would my spouse and my children have been okay if things had turned out differently?” Those are tough questions to answer, but we can tell you from experience that answering them after the fact is far more difficult than addressing them proactively. For those, and all the other tough questions, our Thousand Oaks Estate Planning Law firm is here for you.

Our legal team considers it a privilege to guide clients through the decisions they face when preparing an estate plan and strive to listen and communicate with warmth and compassion . . . because we’ve been there.

Marisha was amazing in helping my wife and I create our Living Trust. She was incredibly patient and knowledgeable-- she answered all our questions and made last minute changes even on the day when we went in to sign the paperwork! I highly recommend this firm to handle your estate planning needs.

We contacted Marisha Charbonnet because we needed new estate planning prior to some upcoming events. Problem was we needed it fast. She was very accommodating to our situation, took the time for an extended meeting and put together the required documents quickly. She was terrific to work with, very thorough and explained all our options in a very understandable way. We absolutely plan to continue working with her as our situation changes. Very grateful for such kind and competent assistance.

Marisha helped us with setting up an estate plan and wills. Everything was very thorough and easy. We appreciated their help navigating this seemingly daunting process that turned out to be easier than expected.

Marisha and her legal assistant, Becky, were extremely efficient, patient, and knowledgeable. The documents we required (trust, wills, health care power of attorney, financial power of attorney) were completed in a timely manner. My husband and I left the office feeling very secure that our written instructions, in case of our inability to care for ourselves and upon our deaths, were precise, ensuring the least possible stress for our children. We cannot recommend her more highly.

The Family Security Law Group, was one of three firms my wife and I interviewed via zoom to do our Estate planning. Family Security Law returned my first inquiry email with a day and set up the meeting for the next day. The other firms took 4 to 7 days for me to even get a response. Family Security Law was a last resort after the waiting frustration and some research from some of their clients. In fact all the interviews ended up happening on the same afternoon. After those interviews I had no question on who I was going to select, Marisha had no hesitation in her answers to our questions. It was obvious to us she knew her Job, California law and other issues extremely well. I am so pleased I decided on this firm to work up our Estate. While they were not the cheapest and also not the most expensive they did cover all the bases, treated us with care, respect and and provided us with an excellent finished project easy to follow that will allow our estate to be passed on to our Kids. Marisha Charbonnet was our Attorney, extremely knowledgeable, pleasant to work with, organized and professional and the finished project was way more than what I had even thought of. My wife and I are so very pleased to have work with Marisha and I must say we would not hesitate to call her a friend. Family Security Law Group excided my expectations and I highly recommend this firm as well as Marisha to handle anyone's Estate plans. Mel and Diana Tufto

We just did our family trust package (trust, will, power of attorney for assets and health care) with a local Thousand Oaks, CA Trust Attorney, Marisha Charbonnet. Ms. Charbonnet answered all our questions, and explained everything in detail. She is experienced, knowledgeable, and responsive. Ms. Charbonnet and her staff made the entire process very pleasant. I would recommend her to anyone with estate planning questions.
