Santa Clarita Trust & Probate Administration & Litigation Attorneys

Litigation Stemming from Estate-Related Disputes

As trust and probate matters are delicate and involve families on opposing sides of legal disputes, they are best handled by an experienced attorney who has experience working on such cases. For many individuals, Cohen Law, A PLC is the law firm of choice. Our Valencia trust & probate litigation lawyers have provided successful representation on estate-related lawsuits and will contests.

Probate Lawyers in Santa Clarita

If you require probate administration proceedings upon the death of a loved one, we can assist. Our attorneys can take you through the probate process, assisting with paperwork, bond-filing, petition-publishing and notice-serving, to name some.

What does the probate process in California involve?

  • Court appoints a personal representative to oversee the process
  • The representative files a petition to schedule a hearing
  • Notices will be published in the local newspaper and notification is sent to heirs and creditors
  • The will must be proved to be valid
  • Assets are inventoried and appraised
  • Debts are paid off to creditors
  • Estate taxes are paid
  • Assets are distributed and other fees are paid off to the court, estsate attorney, and representative

We have a strong track-record of efficiently handling trustee compensation disputes, impartiality issues, fiduciary duty breach by a trustee, debt claims against the estate by a third party, inheritance disputes and trustee violations of trust, arising during the probate process.

Legal Matters Involving Wills & Trusts

When you find yourself in the midst of a situation where another party is contesting the validity of a loved one's will, you have the big task of handling an emotionally-charged period in your life and abiding by legal obligations to honor the terms of the will. In such trying times, we can provide legal representation in matters that involve the contesting, challenging and disputing of wills.

Wills are contested on the basis of challenges that the individual was not in the right mind when creating the will, or that the individual was under the influence of fraud or coercion. Some wills may be contested just to make complete sense of the vague language used. Regardless of your case, sound legal advice from our lawyers can help you effectively protect your best interests.
