NAVIGATING THE PROBATE PROCESS

Finalizing a deceased’s estate following his or her death

Southern California Probate Law

Navigating the Complex Probate Process

Probate is the legal term used to describe the process involved in finalizing a deceased’s estate following his or her death. The probate process can be highly complex depending on a number of circumstances. After a loved one’s passing, family members are best served working with an attorney who understands how to make the process as fluid and efficient as possible.

At the law firm of Holstrom, Block, & Parke, APLC we represent family members, trustees, executors, and other parties in probate matters. With offices conveniently located throughout Southern California, we are prepared to help you with any need you may have. The probate attorneys at our firm are prepared to help you navigate and address any disputes that arise throughout every step of the probate process.

This can involve:

  • Notifying creditors, beneficiaries, and other interested parties
  • Inventorying and appraising assets
  • Collecting payments, debts and income owed
  • Filing and paying taxes
  • Paying debts
  • Distributing assets to beneficiaries

Protect Their Legacy with a Probate Lawyer

When a will is clear, the outcome is usually clear as well. Unfortunately, when your loved one lacks a valid or enforceable will, the probate process can become uncertain and painful. Probate can devolve into a free-for-all with siblings, children, spouses, and debt collectors fighting for a piece of the estate. Our attorneys have seen this happen far too often.

You can avoid the added pain and stress of prolonged probate.

Hiring a probate attorney accomplishes a few key things. One, it ensures a smoother process. Our lawyers have decades of experience in complex financial matters involving estate planning, taxes, and family law—we are equipped for virtually any obstacle in the probate process. As a result, you can trust us to make probate faster and easier for you.

Two, having a lawyer clarifies your goals and ensures your voice is heard in court—aggressively, if necessary. We utilize over 200 years of experience to create legal solutions that turn your objectives into legitimate legal maneuvers.

Three, lawyers can honor your loved one’s final wishes. Even without a formal will, you may understand what your loved one wanted most for his or her family. Our attorneys fight to ensure your loved one’s wishes are fulfilled at every step.
