- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I typically bill at $300/hr. For estate planning, I typically charge a flat fee. For probate of a decedent's will or estate, the fee for an attorney is set by California law based on a percentage of the value of the estate (see Probate Code section 10810).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Initial phone consultation and preliminary review of documents is FREE. Then I let the client know what I think needs to be done, how long that will take, and give an estimate of the cost if the client chooses to use my services.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from Tulane University Law School in New Orleans, Louisiana magna cum laude in the top 15% of my class in May 2010. I passed the California bar on my first attempt and was admitted to practice law in California in November 2010. I have been practicing here in California ever since, and a majority of my practice has focused on probate law. This includes trust and estate litigation, probate of Decedent's will or estate, trust administration, and estate planning.
