Sacramento Probate And Trust Administration Attorneys
When it comes to selecting an attorney to help you with probate and trust administration, you want an advocate at your side who possesses experience in this complex area of practice, knowledge of California law and insight into how courts rule in these matters. Jacquie Gevelinger brings not only those attributes, but also tenacity and aggression in securing the results her clients want.
The Need For An Experienced Probate And Trust Administration Lawyer
Probate is a court-supervised process where estate debts are paid and personal property and real property are passed to named beneficiaries. Trust administration is a noncourt-supervised proceeding for the payment of a deceased person's debts and the distribution of his or her assets to named beneficiaries. Unfortunately, the process — either in a formal probate proceeding or in a trust administration context, may be anything but orderly.
Ms. Gevelinger is an experienced attorney who will look out for your best interests, whether she is attending to every detail in administration, working with you toward settlement in contested matters or resolving issues through probate and trust litigation.
At Carlson & Gevelinger, we know that probate and trust administration cases may evolve from existing family law cases, particularly with couples married a significant amount of time. Parties ending their marriage often do not realize the ramifications on their estate plans. Pre-existing trusts may need modifications. In some cases, questions of competency arise where a conservator needs to be appointed in an ongoing family law case.
