also known as Ed Goodson, Edward W. Goodson
I have dedicated myself to estate, trust, and probate-related cases since 2001, representing trustees, executors, beneficiaries, conservators, and guardians in trust and estate administration matters of many types, and in many probate courts throughout California.
I'm a proud father of two talented college students, an avid skier, and a political junkie.
Since 1986 I have played tuba with the California Repercussions, a semi-professional pep band made up mostly of alumni of the UC Davis Marching Band and the UC Berkeley Marching Band. Go Bears!
I am also active with the Society for Creative Anachronism ( SCA ).

I commend Mr. Goodson for discussing the fact that it is possible to hire a probate lawyer in California for less than the maximum allowable fee set by statute. I practice probate law in Nevada where my firm of Reed & Mansfield successfully offers discount rates and excellent personal service for probate cases. Occasionally I get clients who have to do probates in both California and Nevada and often these clients have been brainwashed by California lawyers that "all lawyers in California charge the same amount for a probate," so no point price shopping.
