Probate & Estate Administration

Guidance For The Probate And Administration Process

Dealing with the emotional aspect of losing a family member is difficult enough; having to wade into a complex legal process at the same time seems downright cruel. The good news is that you do not have to bear the weight of the probate and estate administration process alone. In Santa Cruz County and surrounding California communities, you can turn to the experienced attorneys at Haselton, Haselton & Liddicoat LLP.

Our firm’s attorneys have been helping executors, estate administrators and heirs wind down estates and wrap up the legal affairs of their loved ones and friends for more than 30 years. Our background in real estate law and business issues positions us to address the many complex issues that can arise when these issues intersect with the probate and estate administration process.

Full-Service Representation Every Step Of The Way

You are not an estate attorney, and you should not be expected to perform like one during your time of grief. Whether your loved one died with an estate plan in place or they never established a will, we can help. We will start by identifying the proper course of action and make sure you are aware of all your rights and responsibilities. Then we will guide you through necessary steps such as paying bills, settling accounts with creditors, and distributing property according to the will or relevant probate laws. We can make sure things are taken care of the right way the first time, so you can move forward without legal exposure, tax problems or other issues that can arise when an estate is handled in a sloppy manner.
