An Experienced Legal Professional & A Trusted Friend
Probate is a lengthy, time-consuming, and exhausting process. It is an understatement to call it a tedious process. Moreover, it strikes at a time when you are at your most vulnerable. You have just lost a loved one and you are in no state of mind to go through the legal grind presented by the probate. During such times of need, you can always look up to your neighborhood friend and a well-respected Oakland CA probate attorney, George Derieg.
A Probate Lawyer is Not Optional.
The probate process is a prolonged legal procedure that can take anywhere between 12 months and as much as 18 months. Collecting a large number of documents, exhaustive questioning of the family members, and filing mountains of paperwork at the court are only some of the steps involved in the process. A complicated case may even stretch longer.
However, a skilled and experienced attorney will find a way to resolve any issue that may arise during the process. If your probate process has stretched beyond the regular 18-month period, it is a good cue for you to change your representation.
