Law Offices of Maria N. Jonsson - Trusts & Estates

A custom-designed estate plan can mean a peace of mind for you, and is the responsible thing to do for those who depend on you. Prudently planning your estate during life goes a long way after death. Each of us ultimately faces the reality of planning for life and death – and the goal is to do it efficiently, with utmost attention to fitting each person’s individual needs, and most notably – to anticipate and prevent conflict and costly litigation. My firm specializes exclusively in pre-death planning (estate planning) and post-death administration (trust administration and probate), conducted in an expeditious and cost-sensitive manner.

Santa Monica Plastics

santa monica plastics

Santa Monica Plastics, LLC is owned by Eric and Claudia Warren who established their company in Santa Monica, California in December of 2011. Bruce Zelesnik, the lead sales representative, with his significant plastics industry experience, has also been integral to the company.

Eric and Claudia express characteristic warmth and curiosity toward developing Santa Monica Plastics into a company that will play a major role in their love of lifelong learning. In this way they would like their company to be a hub for plastic goods and services and a place that inspires creativity, ingenuity, and community oriented values.

Their vision is to create a home base for brilliant designers, fabricators, plastic specialists, and sales representatives with a heart for integrity – to meet the plastic needs and interests of the public while flourishing in their careers. Since plastic has a wide variety of uses and is becoming increasingly environmental, there continues to be a multitude of ways for the Santa Monica Plastics team to grow more adept.

Ownership of Hastings Plastics changed hands in 2000 and later closed in 2011 when the property was sold to make way for the Expo Light Rail. Eric, having worked in fabrication for six-and-a-half years, and Bruce, having worked in sales since the mid-eighties, were encouraged by customers to continue the Hastings legacy. Together, with Claudia, they soon discovered the possibilities for starting a new company, and the idea for Santa Monica Plastics was born.
