Burbank Probate Attorney

Executors | Administrators | Personal Representatives | Heirs | Trustees | Accounting of Assets | Valuation of Property | Payment of Final Debts | Estate Tax Concerns | Estate and Trust Distributions

If you have been named executor, administrator or personal representative of a loved one’s estate, or if you believe you have an interest as an heir to an estate, you want an experienced Probate & Trust Administration Attorney to help you settle the estate. Without knowledgeable counsel, the probate process can be complex, time-consuming and costly. The same concerns apply if you have the responsibility to administer a private trust. You want to make certain that you adhere to the trust’s provisions and don’t perform or fail to act in ways that could be a violation of your fiduciary duty.

When you are administering an estate or trust, you want a lawyer who is familiar with the process and has successfully helped others in similar situations.

At the law offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, we have been protecting the rights of people in and around Burbank for nearly 60 years, opening our practice in 1962. We understand all the different concerns that can arise when you are working to fulfill the obligations of the probate process. We employ a team of professionals in other critical disciplines, including tax and accounting, real estate, investment planning and money management, and insurance, so that all of your needs can be addressed simultaneously.

To learn how we can help you, contact our office or call us at 626-445-1212 (toll-free at 1-800-529-5570) for an appointment.

At the Burbank, California, offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, we represent people in north and northwest Los Angeles, including Glendale, Pasadena, Altadena and La Crescenta. We also maintain locations in Arcadia, Temecula, Whittier and Glendora, CA.

Our Probate Administration Practice

Our lawyers will handle all requirements to complete the probate process, preparing any documents needed during the process and acting as your advocate in all hearings or proceedings. We will help you:

  • File a petition for probate or for letters of administration
  • compile and submit an inventory of the estate’s assets
  • prepare and send out any required notices
  • obtain property valuations, if necessary
  • pay all final debts and taxes of the estate
  • oversee the orderly distribution of property in accordance with the terms of a will
  • officially close / settle the estate

Our Trust Administration Practice

If you have assumed the role of Trustee because of the death or incapacity of the person creating the trust (the Trustor), we can help you take all the necessary steps to protect yourself and the trust assets.

We will help you understand all your rights and responsibilities as a Trustee, and will advise you regarding trust investments, trust distributions or any other matter tied to your fiduciary duties. We will also counsel you if there are disputes regarding the administration of the trust.
