    There are attorneys in California that handle cases involving different areas of the law. And, there are many practitioners who specialize in areas like family law, criminal defense, tax or estate planning. It is your decision. However, it is not always easy being a general practitioner. Many general practitioners I know will associate with experts in certain legal fields, if they do not have the expertise. If you are already in law school in California, you will study The Rules of...

    You may ask your County Assessor's office about reducing your property tax. The procedures for this process may differ from County to County, so you need to check with your County Assessor's office. The information you supplied indicates that your home is in Davis, California. If your property is in Davis, the Yolo County website shows that Davis is in Yolo County. You can review the website for Yolo County, which lists the ASSESSOR under Government Departments. Information is provided by...

    This sounds like a complicated fact pattern that could involve several areas of California law. The question appears to be asked by someone from the City and County of San Francisco, CA (or, least, that is what is indicated below the question: "Asked 2 days ago - San Francisco"), and it involves the Office of the Public Guardian for San Francisco. You only provide a limited fact pattern. Based upon what you wrote, I agree with the two other attorneys who recommended that you seek the advice...

    Sorry for your loss and current difficulties. I cannot tell where you live or location of your mom's home or where your mom lived. My practice is limited to California. And, assuming all events are taking or have taken place in California, I agree with the other lawyers who answered your question by recommending that you seek an attorney: it is wise to seek counsel from an attorney who practices probate/estate planning or who has a specialization in Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law. In...

    I am not exactly certain what you mean by "senior legal help." And, perhaps, you are not quite sure how to describe the type of legal assistance that you need. I assume you consider yourself a senior citizen. What might be helpful to you in figuring out what type of legal help you need is by reviewing the website for the State Bar of California, which currently has a section entitled "Seniors and the Law - A Guide for Maturing Californians." The website states that one may order the print...

    I do not practice law in Ventura County where you live. There is a Bar Association in Ventura County, California. You can contact the local Bar Association and inquire about attorneys in your area that specialize or practice estate planning. You may contact the State Bar of California and inquire about attorneys in your area that are certified specialists in estate planning as well as inquire about the record of any attorney that you are considering using for your estate plan. The State Bar...
