The Probate Process
Probate is a court process which involves collecting a decedent's assets, notifying creditors, paying liabilities, and distributing the remaining assets to heirs. We work to guide executors and administrators navigate the probate process and the administration of a Decedent's estate.

Our litigation team has the probate litigation and trial experience to prosecute or defend probate and trust cases in all Southern California courts.
Executor & Trustee Representation
We will assist you if a friend or loved one has passed and you have been appointed as the executor / personal representative for the estate.
If you are a beneficiary of a Will or Trust and are being treated unfairly we will sue the executor or trustee and have them removed. We will recover money from the executor if he or she has stolen from the estate or trust.
