Frequently Asked Questions

What do you charge for your services?

When hiring a Rocklin, CA, probate attorney, the fees you’ll pay are already set in place by California state law. The attorney fees are a percentage of the entire probate estate’s gross value. This doesn’t deduct debts, mortgages, or other liabilities the estate may owe.

Additionally, the fee paid to the attorney is based on a sliding scale. This means that as the estate value increases, the percentage paid to the attorney decreases with each increasing value. Discuss this with your attorney for a better understanding of what you may pay for your case.

Also, be sure to ask your probate attorney about any additional expenses that may be involved with your case. Asking these questions ahead of time will help you better prepare.
