Without the guidance of an experienced attorney, the process of probating an estate can be daunting and frustrating. Timothy M. Weir is a certified by the California State Bar as a specialist in estate planning, trust and probate, with over 20 years of experience in probate courts. He is uniquely qualified to help you navigate the probate process quickly and efficiently.
In probate consultations, he typically discusses the place of residence of the decedent; what the decedent owned; what the decedent owed; identification of living relatives of the decedent, including the decedent’s surviving spouse, children, parents, siblings, and grandchildren; and the nature of a probate proceeding, including how long it typically takes and how much it might cost to open, administer and close the estate.
Sometimes a decedent will leave an estate that can be effectively administered without needing to open a full-fledged probate. When appropriate, avoiding a full-fledged probate can substantially lessen the time and cost to wrap up the decedent’s estate. Mr. Weir will offer you experienced, professional and reliable advice on whether the decedent’s estate under discussion might be eligible to avoid a full-fledged probate.
