Beverly Hills probate lawyers often deal with vast estates containing assets that are spread around the globe and are valued well into nine to 10 figures. The probate process for such vast estates can stretch on for years and can eat up millions of additional dollars. For this and other reasons, Beverly Hills estate planning is almost an absolute necessity.

In the absence of comprehensive Beverly Hills estate planning, the deceased's assets are divided and distributed by the courts. The courts will divide the assets according to the deceased's will--if he/she left one. In the absence of a will, they will divide the assets among the deceased's survivors according to state law, regardless of the deceased's unofficial wishes.

Beverly Hills probate lawyers are often as skilled at planning an estate to avoid probate as they are at guiding one through probate. Sometimes attorneys will be as adept in one role as in the other. The most important consideration you must make in choosing an attorney is their level of experience (assuming trustworthiness is already assured).

Comparing Beverly Hills Probate Lawyers

Beverly Hills probate lawyers are just like professionals in any other line of work. Those with vast experience can be thorough, sharp, and instinctive; they can also be bored, tired, and dreaming of retirement. Those fresh from law school can be well-prepared over-achievers or unprepared fumblers. The point is that you should listen to the referral advice of people you trust, and check any attorney's status with the State Bar.
