Mr. Bauman has over 23 years of probate, trust and estate planning experience. Linda, my paralegal, has over 34 years of San Diego and Los Angeles probate and trust administration experience. A combined 57 plus years of experience available to you.
What if it Goes to Trial?
Mr. Bauman has tried 13 jury trials to verdict. He has tried trust and court bench trials to decision. He has been appointed Practice Administrator and probate administrator by judges of the San Diego Superior Court.
There are trust and probate lawyers who do not care for the trial experience. If your case goes to trial, you will need to hire a second attorney, a trial attorney, to get up to speed to prepare for trial at a substantial expense to you. We do it all, start to finish.
We know your case from day one. Every fact, every witness, every detail. I will personally handle your case from beginning to end.
Trial is not our first choice. Statistically, approximately 80% of probate cases settle. As a credentialed mediator we know the value of an early settlement both in terms of the emotions stress on the families and the high cost of probate litigation. Mr. Bauman studied negotiation under Professor Roger Fisher at the Harvard Negotiation Project.
We are uniquely qualified to add client value as we know our tax. Mr. Bauman holds an advanced LL.M. degree in taxation and has been certified by the State Bar of California as a specialist in taxation law.
