Probate Lawyer Serving Torrance, CA & Palos Verdes, CA Areas

Probate is the process whereby the Court oversees the administration of the estate of a person who has died, if his assets subject to probate exceed $150,000. Although this process may be avoided if a proper estate plan is in place, a probate is frequently needed to administer the affairs of the decedent and to resolve any issues that may arise among the beneficiaries and heirs.

When a probate is required, we strive to make the process as easy as possible for the family, and to handle matters efficiently and compassionately with minimum delays. Additional support can be provided for special circumstances, such as real estate sales or agreements among beneficiaries about alternate asset transfers.

Walt has experience in handling a variety of problems that may arise in a probate proceeding, including such things as Will contests, dealing with competing petitions to become administrator, and handling holdover tenants in estate properties.
