Probate and Estate Administration

Help You Need to Successfully Navigate a Loved One’s Estate Through Probate –
Quickly and Effectively


Probate is the legal process through which a person’s legal and financial affairs are completed and resolved after their death. In California, probate is conducted in the county where the deceased individual lived. Probate can occur whether or not the person had a will in place at their time of death.

Probate is a time-consuming and involved process, taking between eleven months and three years to complete, depending on the complexity of issues to be resolved, and the county in which the descendent resided at the time of death. Our experienced and knowledgeable probate attorneys in Orange County understand how confusing and frustrating the probate process can be. We will proactively assist you with collecting estate assets, addressing estate liabilities and creditors, selling real property and other assets, as well as answering questions and giving you legal guidance throughout the process. You can trust your estate will be properly administered and closed, and that your inheritance will be placed in the hands of the beneficiaries as quickly as possible.

What are the potential costs involved in probate?

Probate expenses may include court fees, legal fees, executor fees, appraiser fees, and more fees at times. We understand transparency and cost-effectiveness are important to our clients. This is why our attorneys work diligently to minimize costs by leveraging our expertise, employing efficient processes, and ensuring that all aspects of the probate process are handled in the most cost-effective manner possible.
