Sound Advice Regarding California Probate Law

Probate is the legal process by which a person's property is distributed after death. It can be a relatively simple procedure or exceedingly complex, depending on circumstances, the quality of the will and trust documents, and other factors.

At Palmer, Rodak & Associates, in Oceanside and Del Mar, we are experienced estate planning and probate lawyers. After the loss of a family member, we help clients wrap up estates efficiently and arrange for the distribution of estate property through the probate process. Our lawyers also handle will contests that may arise.

Palmer Rodak & Associates represents clients in matters involving:

  • Probate administration

In paying off a decedent's debts and distributing estate property, there can be many pitfalls, particularly regarding real estate. The attorneys at our firm provide advice to executors and trust administrators designed to preserve estate assets and wrap-up the estate as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

While the probate documents of most estates — even those of modest size — must be reviewed in probate court, our diligence and attention to detail can help clients avoid legal complications during the final review.
