If You’ve Recently Lost A Loved One & Are Facing Probate, We Can Help You Navigate & Simplify The Process.
If you are visiting this page because a family member of yours has passed away, allow our team to express our deepest sympathies. Dealing with death can be extremely difficult emotionally, but many people are surprised at how legally complex it can become if their loved one did not have an estate plan in place. In California, if someone passes away without an estate plan - even if they had a will - their estate will likely have to go through a court process known as probate before any of their assets can be legally transferred to their beneficiaries. This means that if your loved one’s estate has to go through probate, their house may not be able to be renovated or sold, their bank accounts may not be able to be accessed, and their other possessions may not be able to legally be renamed until the process is complete You and the other beneficiaries will also likely not be able to receive your share of the inheritance until then, even if it is specified in the will.
As you may have already inferred, probate is notoriously complicated, confusing, expensive, and time-consuming; it requires extensive paperwork and frequent communication with the courts and with creditors. Any mistakes made along the way can lead to personal liability or prolong the process. Probate cases can also be prone to cause conflict among family members. When you’re grieving, legalities are the last thing you want to deal with, and probably the last thing you have time for as you are making funeral arrangments and taking care of all of the other practicalities that go hand-in-hand with someone’s passing. That’s why you need the help of experienced Calabasas probate lawyers who can guide you every step of the way through the process.

When I contacted and asked the attorney for some advice, I immediately felt a great sense of unconditional support, and found the office environment to be very peaceful with a very professional front desk and staff. I appreciate all his help and heartwarming support. Thank you so much.
We were fortunate enough to get in contact with the attorneys: we had a water leak in our house and homeowner insurance was not helpful. From the moment we met with Russell, we knew right away that we are in good hands. He took his time to go with us over the issues that we had with insurance. He was very understanding and patient, every week he gave us updates on the progress, show us that he really cares about our situation. He went above and beyond to make sure that we will get full compensation. We are very grateful for what he has done for us. He did an amazing job!!! I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone in need.

He was completely present throughout our entire conversation and I truly felt that he genuinely cared. He went out of his way to provide valuable information and made sure to answer all the questions I had. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking for genuine, and professional attorneys!
