Probate

If a probate is necessary, we provide the executor of the will (or, administrator if there is no will) representation in the probate court and in giving notices as required by law. If there is no will, separate and community property passes by intestate succession to persons designated by law.

Fees for the executor and attorney for routine administration are set by law:

First $100,0004%
$100,001 to $200,0003%
$200,001 to $1,000,0002%
$1,000,001 to $10,000,0001%
Balance to $25,000,0001/2%
