To put it simply, Probate is the court-supervised administration of a decedent’s estate. Unfortunately, there is nothing simple about Probate in California. It is an expensive, time-consuming, highly public and often frustrating process, made all the more difficult by the grief that accompanies losing a love one. Fees are set by statute in the California Probate Code. While much of our practice is devoted to helping our clients avoid probate entirely, we can lead your family through the process with compassion and understanding when probate is required.
