Guidance Through the Entire Probate Process

Administering an estate, also known as probate, can be a long and complex process. After a death, there are many details that need to be settled. We are ready to help you through each step in the probate process which may include:

  • Transferring real estate
  • Transferring property to designated beneficiaries
  • Filing necessary paperwork with the court
  • Paying outstanding debts

The probate process varies from estate to estate. If the deceased died without a will (if the decease died "intestate"), the process becomes more complex. Our firm is ready to represent you no matter what unique circumstances apply.

We also represent clients in the summary administration process in California.
