Remember that with or without a will, your estate will go through probate. Probate is public and denies you the privilege of keeping your most personal affairs private. When an estate goes through probate, your friends and neighbors may attend hearings and deciding who gains custody of you kids and who receives your house. Attorney fees are fixed and mandated by the California Probate Code. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment to discuss more about the probate process. Initial consultation is free.
