Law Firm with actual PROBATE COURT EXPERIENCE

EXPERTS AND SPECIALISTS

Every “probate lawyer” you talk to says they are a probate “expert” or a probate “specialist.”  Of course few really are.  When I say that I mean it because 1) I was a former Sacramento Bee probate “expert” when I wrote for the Bee and 2) I am a Certified Specialist in probate law as determined by the State Bar of California.

MY EXPERIENCE

I often tout how many probates I have done to show my experience. I have probably done 700 probates at this point in my career. I do not count but that’s a pretty reasonable guess. It could be more.

OTHER EXPERIENCE

However, with all my accolades, degrees, classes I have taken, classes I have taught, and all of my probate cases I have completed there is one thing I can not say. I have never worked at the probate Court as an attorney.  Frankly speaking I do not know of any, until now, in the Sacramento region who have this experience.

OUR NEW ATTORNEY

On Monday June 10, 2013 the law offices of Meissner, Joseph & Palley are pleased and excited to announce the addition of Evelyn E. Skall to our team.  Evelyn has spent the majority of her 25 year degree working at the Sacramento County probate Court where she has advised the Judges on their cases. She has probably worked on countless thousands, if not tens of thousands, of probate cases. She has dissected cases filed in all types of probate matters. Now she will be working for us doing

the same thing… except without advising the Judge of course.

CASE REVIEW

Ms. Skall will be reviewing our probate Court filings for accuracy and to make sure it meets up with the specifications the Court requires. Even though I have filed 700 probate cases the Court attorneys occasionally find stuff that could have been done differently. We will now have that Judicial type review IN OUR OFFICE!

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR OUR CLIENTS

I believe that our probate clients will be getting the best possible care and accuracy of any law firm in California.  With my experienc

e representing clients, coupled with Ms. Skall’s courthouse experience, we will be second to none!  Our filings will be even more accurate than before!  Plus, since probate cases are based on the statutory fee schedule it won’t cost you more.

CONCLUSION

The addition of Evelyn E. Skall to the team at Meissner, Joseph & Palley, Inc. will make us second to none in California for probate attorneys. Our work will be efficient as always but even more accurate than before! Also, as stated above, since attorney fees in standard probate cases are based on the statutory fee schedule our clients won’t pay any more for this incredible level of service!
