Probate Calculator

In probate law in California, a probate is the process used to prove a testator's last will and testament. A probate lawyer can be of significant help in making sure that you have all the information regarding how probates work in California. Usually this process culminates in either transferring probated property to beneficiaries or distributing personal representative probated property to heirs. A probate attorney is a must if someone dies without a will or testament in California. It is also required when the executor of the probated person's estate does not want to deal with probating an estate on their own or, alternatively, no one wanted them to be named the personal representative (executor) of their probated person's estate. In other cases, probate may be required in California because the probated person died without naming a personal representative or executor in their probate documents.

Satisfied Client Stories


Was going in for heart surgery in a week and needed an Estate Plan ASAP! Jennifer and the staff at Filippi Law Firm managed to put together my plan, which was rather extensive, within that time frame. This gave me the peace of mind I needed in case the worst happened. Luckily it wasn’t need but I now have it in case I ever do. Great staff and wonderful to work with. Wouldn’t go to anyone else. Would give 10 stars if I could.

We recently relocated from the Bay Area and wanted to update our over-25-year-old Living Trust. He did an outstanding job. He also gave us some contacts in Texas to update some property we own there.
