Steven Derryberry in Lancaster, CA is the BEST probate attorney I have worked with EVER. He is one of those rare attorneys who listens to his clients and puts the clients’ best interests first. (In my case, even though it was potentially at his expense.) He was compassionately blunt when he needed to be and absolutely brilliant when I needed suggestions about how to handle my deceased sister’s upside-down mortgaged house in probate. Steven has an excellent relationship with the Lancaster, CA courts which is extremely important in probate. I trust him so he's also going to do my simple revocable trust so my daughter doesn’t have to go through the shenanigans I had to deal with the first attorney I hired. I recommend Steven Derryberry to anyone in regards to estate planning.
