4 Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring a Probate Lawyer

  1. Communicating with your attorney / law firm indirectly. If your probate attorney is not speaking to you directly and is instead communicating with you only through email, assistants, or a paralegal, there is a problem! You should always have full access to the attorney who is representing your case. At Mansell & Mansell, APC, you will always be directed to Attorney Cheryl Mansell, who has been handling probate matters in California for the past 25 years.
  2. Hiring an attorney who has not expressed his or her core legal values. If you are going through probate administration or a similar legal matter, you need an attorney who values integrity. From the get-go, it should be clear that your lawyer is a valued member of the legal community. Look at client testimonials and professional accolades to get a feel for what your attorney is all about. Mansell & Mansell, APC is AV Rated® by Martindale-Hubbell® - the oldest attorney ranking system in the field - for our professionalism, ethics, longevity, and overall competency.
  3. Choosing an inexperienced attorney. A lawyer who is fresh out of law school may be eager to take on your case, but you cannot be sure that he or she has the experience needed to handle the sensitive nature of what you're experiencing. Your case is best served under the representation of a lawyer who has years of experience. At Mansell & Mansell, APC, all of our attorneys have at least 25 years of personal experience working in the law.
  4. Not hiring an attorney and instead trying to handle the case yourself. The intricate nature of probate and corresponding legal procedures such as will and trust contests is a job that should be handled by no one other than an experienced attorney. While you may be hesitant to involve a lawyer in your family matter, it could mean a world of different in the outcome of your case. Mansell & Mansell, APC handles all cases confidentially and sensitively so you can trust in our services.
