Probate is the process of carrying out the provisions of a person’s estate plan after his or her death. There are many issues involved, such as locating and valuing property, making sure the will and other documents are valid, and paying the debts and expenses of the estate. The process can become complicated, even for modest estates, making the assistance of an experienced attorney very useful.
At the Barron Law Corporation, we have guided people through the probate process since 1991. We start by taking the time to sit down with each client and simply listening. Whether you are challenging a will or trust, or you are the executor of the estate, we can help you accomplish your goals. We treat every client with respect and understanding, knowing that these issues are sensitive and highly personal.

Handling All Aspects of Probate
Our lawyers strive to handle every probate efficiently. The process can be time-consuming and expensive, and if the probate drags on, the estate’s assets may be used to pay for probate rather than going to the intended beneficiaries. Many probates take between six months and a year. Our goal is to minimize the time necessary for probate and maximize the property available to beneficiaries and heirs.
As a full-service law firm, we are ready to handle any issue that may come up. If there are questions about real estate, we can answer them. If a business is part of the estate, our experience in business law helps us deal with those assets during probate. Whatever the issue, we will work to protect your rights and do our best to carry out the intent of your loved one.
Though the majority of probates in California go smoothly, disputes occasionally arise. Disagreements between family members and others who may feel as though they should have received assets can be very difficult to manage. As experienced lawyers, we can handle these complex cases. We can help you with will or trust issues of many types, such as:
- Will contests
- Trust contests
- Undue influence
- Issues of capacity
