If you have a probate problem or simply need answers to your questions, contact an experienced probate attorney at Elder Law Services of California today for a free initial consultation by calling 1-800 403-6078.
To get the most out of your first meeting with your probate attorney you should have answers to the following questions beforehand:
What is being probated? Is it a will, a trust or something else?
What is your role in the probate matter? Are you preparing the will? Are you the executor? The heir? Or someone else?
What services would you want your probate attorney to perform? Your probate attorney can help prepare wills and living wills, probate administration and litigation, assist with will contests, provide advice, help revoke previous wills or trusts, arrange for payment of the deceased person’s debts, and distribute property to the heirs.
Questions you will want to ask during your meeting include:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What is the next step?
