The death of a family member is accompanied by a number of legal complexities that can turn costly and contentious in a hurry. With the services of a knowledgeable probate attorney, however, it is often possible to navigate these legal matters in a cost-effective manner.
At the Law Office of Drew Petersen, I provide skilled probate representation to clients throughout Orange County and surrounding areas in California. I am here to protect your rights and interests in these critical legal and financial matters.
Skilled Guidance Through The Probate Process
I represent heirs, beneficiaries, executors, administrators, fiduciaries and other interested parties in all aspects of the probate and estate administration process.
The probate of an estate involves many legal and financial steps, including:
- Identifying and appraising estate assets
- Paying taxes
- Paying creditors
- Collecting debts
- Distributing assets in accordance with a will
Because of my focus on residential and commercial real estate law, I am able to provide informed counsel on matters involving the transfer of real estate, which is often an integral part of the probate process.
Resolving Will Disputes
If you are engaged in an estate dispute, I can provide you with the strong representation you need. Such disputes often arise over claims of financial misconduct, undue influence and incapacity. I understand the sensitive nature of estate disputes and work to resolve them without creating unnecessary strife or acrimony among family members.
