Can anybody recommend a good estate attorney in San Francisco? We want to set up a will, and we undoubtedly need the whole estate-planning package (power of attorney, living trusts, etc). [more inside]

My husband and I are retired, in our early 60's, good health, no kids or close family and we don't have a will. I lie awake at night and worry about this. We don't own any property right now but do have a house full of furniture, some vintage art posters, joint mutual funds, IRA's, deferred comp, a leased car etc.
I was going to download a standard "will" form but my friend said we needed to get a living trust so the survivor wouldn't have to go through probate court which can be costly. Do we need to have an executor in either case?
Does anyone have any advice on what would be best for people like us - our assets are under 500k. We live in Illinois. Thanks!
