Attorneys...We Want To Work With You

During the past 30 years, The Probate Source (Bill Hayman) has worked with many Probate and Trust Attorneys throughout California. There are many ways in which he can help add more value to your practice and help provide even more personal service to your valued clients. Many Attorneys that I've worked with in the past have used my services to handle most, if not all of their uncontested Probate work, and have avoided the often costly expense of hiring a full-time para-legal or in office assistant. My constant attention to details, excellent calendaring skills, and personal service and touch for each and every client provides a level of service that few offices can match. I work hard to respond to all phone calls, emails, texts messages, and inquiries from clients within 1 hour. My calendaring skills help assure that your uncontested Probate case is set for a pre-grant nearly 100% of the time. You are able to spend your valuable time working on the cases and issues that require your legal skills rather than worrying about routine paperwork. I run into many Probate and Trust adminisstration cases that I as a non-Attorney am not able to work. I am always looking for qualified and successful Probate and Trust Attorneys that I can refer these cases to. If you would like to talk about being placed on my Probate and Trust Attorney referral network, please give me a call. Below you will find some of the many services I can provide at a very reasonable cost.

We file all documents with the Court Clerk, and provide .pdf copies back to your office. All forms prepared are submitted to the Attorney for approval before being sent out to the client for review and signatures.
