Helping Clients With Commercial Probate Matters

Many California residents own commercial properties, such as apartment complexes, strip malls, bars or restaurants. These individuals take pride in running their business, but if they pass away unexpectedly without a trust, it can be difficult for their loved ones to carry on business as usual.

At Contreras Law Firm, we help families deal with issues related to commercial probate. Our probate attorneys are well-versed in dealing with the various concerns that arise in these cases, and will help you devise a strategy that allows you to carry out your loved one’s final wishes.

We will quickly identify the steps we need to take to ensure that the business remains operational while the process is ongoing. We will then work together with you to address any and all concerns connected to the probating of commercial property, including:

  • Establishing the administrator of the estate

  • Working together with families to dissolve, sell or transfer interests in a business or property, if necessary
  • Litigating any challenges concerning the distribution of the estate or operation of the business

It is extremely important that you understand how the probate rules affect commercial properties. Any delays that you may encounter can have a severe, negative impact upon the future of the business. We will explain probate to you, and help you understand the things that you must do to ensure that you comply with California probate laws.
