Can Anyone Recommend An Experience Probate Attorney In California?

Asked about 1 year ago - Orange, CA

Well, a few attorneys on this site were kind enough to read my narrative about problems with my probate attorney and subsequent posting stating that he quit. I am now seeking recommendations for an experienced probate attorney. The house in probate is located in Brea, CA. The probate is filed in Orange County, CA. Unless I uncover unknown assets the estate is currently valued at $450,000-$500,000 (best guest). I reside in Las Vegas, NV. The home is presently in escrow and I am up against tight deadlines.

Especially since you are out of state, it is important that you have someone you can trust. If you provide me with the case number in Orange County I might be able to direct you further as well.

    Answered . Brea is in Orange County. You want an Orange County estate planning lawyer. Its not a large enough estate to attract someone from a great distance. Moreover, Orange County has some unique local rules which require someone who is familiar with the processes and clerical staff.
