Ocean Beach Probate Lawyer


After the death of a loved one, dealing with the complex, confusing and time-consuming probate or estate litigation process is the last thing you want to experience. But all too often this is what the deceased person’s loved ones face, especially if there is no will, the wishes of the deceased are improperly documented, or the estate is embroiled in complex financial entanglements.

In these circumstances, it is vital to have proper legal representation to handle these legal matters on your behalf.
