If more people realized everything they could accomplish with a well-though out estate plan, there is no doubt more people would stop procrastinating and get started on their plan. A comprehensive estate plan offers you the opportunity to do so much more than just decide who will receive your assets when you are gone. Among other things, your plan can help you grow those assets throughout your lifetime and make sure they are used to provide for your loved ones at the end of your life. Choosing the right attorney to help you create your plan is a key component to the plan’s success. The estate planning attorneys at Dennis M. Sandoval, A Professional Law Corporation would be honored to be selected to help you with your Menifee, California plan.
About 30 miles southeast of Riverside, you will find the City of Menifee, California. The city encompasses approximately 50 square miles and is home to just over 91,000 residents.
The area now known as Menifee was once inhabited by the Luiseño people. Like much of California, the area eventually fell under the control of Spain in the 18th century. As a result of the Mexican-American War, the area was ultimately ceded to the United States by Mexico in 1850. During that time period, farming was a way of life for most people living in the area. The discovery of quartz in the 1880s by a miner named Luther Menifee (for which the town was named) led to a shift to mining for many residents of Menifee.
Planned development in Menifee didn’t really take off until almost a century later in the 1960s. A building contractor from Phoenix, Arizona began construction of Sun City, an active retirement community modeled after a similar development by the same name in Arizona. Menifee’s growth continued as a master-planned community throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Although a lack of resources slowed that initial growth, growth has once again picked up with new home construction close to large parks, lakes, and amenities. In 2008, Menifee was incorporated, establishing Riverside County’s 26th city. Today, Menifee is recognized as one of the top 10 cities for growth in southern California.
