Probate and Estate Administration

Probate is the court process of administering a decedent's estate.  It begins with petitioning the Superior Court in the county where the decedent died, and moves on to appointing an administrator or Executor, marshaling assets, filing a periodic accounting, determining rightful heirs, distributing assets, and so much more.  If you have experienced the death of a family member, you may have discovered that their bank accounts were "frozen" and you were not able to handle certain accounts or property without proper court authorization.


Only an experienced lawyer can navigate you through the probate process efficiently.  The court system can be overwhelming and stressful for someone who is not familiar with it, but we are here to help.  We have probated multiple cases in Los Angeles County, Ventura County, Orange County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County, and firmly believe that having a little hindsight gives a a lot of foresight.

Please contact us for a consultation if you have an estate that you need help with.  We will walk you through a standard timeline and the fees involved.  Our mission is to make the experience as streamlined for you while you are already dealing with the grief process itself.  Choosing competent counsel is the best investment you will make if you have to get anything through the court system.


It is imperative for us to discuss your particular estate and situation as early in the process as possible.
