Estate Administration Attorneys: Taking the Stress Out of Probate
Probate is the formal process of distributing assets to beneficiaries. It is usually necessary where there is a will or when a person dies without a will. The goal of estate planning is to maximize what a person leaves his or her beneficiaries while minimizing the time and expense associated with the probate process. We create trusts and other estate planning tools that proactively deal with these problems to avoid probate.
However, avoiding probate is not always an option for some people.
With over 30 years of experience handling probate matters, our Los Angeles probate attorneys understand the intricacies of California probate. We guide our clients through each stage. At the Law Office of Hugh Duff Robertson P.C., we also advise personal representatives and beneficiaries in all steps of a probate proceeding to help avoid allegations of breach of fiduciary duty and other disputes. We strive to take the stress and uncertainty out of the probate process.
While the majority of probate cases in California resolve without difficulty, there are times when disputes arise or need to be taken in order to effectively distribute an estate. Many issues can occur during the probate process that can jeopardize the timely resolution of administering an estate.
Our probate litigation lawyers are skilled at protecting the interests of clients in even the most complex probate dispute cases. Some of the most common disputes we handle include:
- Will contests
- Beneficiary/survivor contests
- Challenges to a party’s capacity
- Allegations of undue influence
- Widow allowances
