After a person dies, the legal process the court uses to close out the person’s estate is called probate. This field of law is complex and can be difficult to understand, especially when dealing with the grief of losing a loved one. To best understand the legal proceedings with this type of case, it is helpful to work with an experienced California probate attorney. Christopher E. Seymour, Attorney at Law is here to help answer questions you have during this difficult and stressful time in your life, as well as litigate should your probate case end up going to court.

These fights can be over property, accounts, assets, shares in a company and guardianship of children or pets.

Seymour will work to achieve a swift resolution in or out of the courtroom. He can also work with you to establish a will and trust, to prevent the probate process following your death.
