Experienced North County Probate Attorney

Navigating the probate process in California is highly complicated. Most people engaged in probating an estate never have done so before, and they know little about the process.

Vista probate lawyer Paul V. L. Campo has practiced law for more than 30 years. He is adept at guiding executors and beneficiaries through the probate process.

Proactive And Effective Probate Counsel

Executors and administrators of estates must meet strict legal standards. At the law office of Paul V. L. Campo, we guide our clients through all aspects of the probate process, including the following:

  • Filing the will, if one exists
  • Gathering, appraising and managing the decedent’s assets
  • Transferring the decedent’s assets to the estate
  • Obtaining the estate’s federal tax ID and paying proper estate taxes (if any are due)
  • Notifying creditors and analyzing their claims
  • Locating beneficiaries

We help our clients meet the legal duties required of them, ensuring the probate process is as fair and efficient as possible.
