Some will tell you 10% of the estate value is standard. F That.

Find an attorney and pay hourly, a 50,000 estate takes no more time than a 1,000,000 estate.

So why would you pay it?

Client of mine, Patterson Law Firm in Brea, probate is all they do. Call and ask for Michelyn Miller, she is the managing parther, tell her Walt Hollis referred you.

That’s a lie it’s state mandated on the rate that you pay. It’s based off the estate value
Not true. I have been down this road, I paid hourly.

Probate is a scam, but one that can be avoided.... Below is the MAXIMUM an attorney can charge, but nothing prevents an attorney from charging LESS:

How much does a probate attorney charge in California?
When it comes to statutory fees, California laws outline exactly how much probate attorneys can charge. More specifically, probate lawyers are entitled to 4% of the first $100,000 of the estate's value, 3% of the next $100,000, 2% of the next $800,000, and 1% for amounts over $1 million.

Are these CA state rates for hiring an attorney to represent you in a probate case, or for creating a living trust ?
