The probate process is highly intimidating. An experienced Oakland probate
attorney can help you navigate this process by knowing who to talk to,
what to say, and representing you in court or in family mediation. As
an experienced California probate attorney and former CPA, I represent
clients throughout the entire process from the initial appointment to
the final distribution of the assets.
Here are some of the ways I can help you during the probate process:
Dealing with disputes between family members (a common occurrence)
Negotiating solutions that, if at all possible, help you avoid costly civil
Resolving tax liabilities to ensure that property and other assets are
clear of tax obligations
Avoiding potential pitfalls involved in issues
Under California law, you're supposed to have an attorney representing
you during the probate process. While some exceptions are made, it's
not advisable. Probate occurs at a highly stressful, emotionally charged
time when those involved are prone to making poor decisions. Additionally,
probate proceedings have a strict time limit which, if not met, may eliminate
the possibility of getting a full and fair outcome. This makes it essential
that you contact a qualified advocate and get their advice early on.
I am a probate lawyer with over 20 years of experience helping clients
in the Alameda County area, and I can help you.
Don't Forget the Emotional Toll
It's an unfortunate fact of human nature that we make poor decisions
under stress. There are a thousand conflicting emotions in play. Having
a trusted probate attorney involved in the process can keep the understandably
traumatic emotions at bay. You have enough to contend with while you are
let me keep a clear head and handle all the tricky details. A probate attorney practiced in estate planning can act as a guide to
overcome the sometimes crippling emotions and help get the necessary legal
documents in place. Later on, these documents can prevent misunderstandings
or financial confusion.
When it comes to probate issues, it's essential to understand your
options and have a trusted advocate looking out for your best interests.
Clients who are left in the dark are rarely satisfied. I pride myself
on the personal attention my clients receive and know that they will act
in their best interests when they are fully aware and fully informed.
