‘Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person by resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a valid will or the laws of intestacy.

A Will does not avoid probate!   Many people are misinformed and believe that having a will avoids a probate.  This is not always the case.  It is important to look at the type of assets and the value of the assets to determine whether a probate may be necessary.  Often times, setting up a trust is the solution to avoiding a probate upon one’s passing.

“Cheryl Takabayashi provided legal representation during probate proceedings for my deceased daughter.  She made this difficult transition less complicated.  Her competency is unquestionable, but her compassion and caring is what impressed me the most.  If I ever need legal aid again, Cheryl is my attorney of choice.”
