Do I Need A Probate Attorney?

California law is notoriously complex when it comes to probate. It often requires the input of the probate court. If you make an error, you stand to lose significant resources that you could have saved in the first place by hiring a probate lawyer. It is also wise to have an advocate who can protect your best interests, particularly if a will contest or other dispute arises.
