At the Law Offices of Alice A. Salvo, we are acutely aware that individuals seeking our services in California probate law are, more often than not, experiencing intense emotional distress following a personal loss. As you might expect, the typical mindset of a bereaved individual is not conducive to absorbing fine points of legal procedure or processing complicated financial arrangements. This is why we make it our priority to help clients organize their thoughts if and when they find themselves involved in either formal probate or summary proceedings.
While prioritizing legal matters may not seem like the most important action following a loss, you might be surprised at the burden it tends to lift. We find that the general lack of knowledge about the typical duration of probate court investigations is the main issues adding unnecessary stress to the process of settling an estate.
Decisions seldom arrive quickly, so we see no reason to rush to complete certain requirements. We believe every step should be completed when it is necessary. Essentially, we see it as our job to give our clients the maximum amount of peace possible to complete their grieving process while still ensuring all legal matters are executed to the satisfaction of the probate court.
We also often find that individuals and families with detailed estate planning experience less stress during their probate proceedings. We take pride in the fact that our legal practice provides some emotional comfort for people during what might be the most difficult time of their lives.
