You have a number of options to consider when searching for an attorney to help you with your estate or trust matter. You may turn to a friend, family member or even a trusted advisor for referrals to help you find the right lawyer. Aside from checking references, experience and fees, be sure to also look for certification. Certification means that your attorney has mastered and passed tests showing proficiency in probate, trusts and estate planning law.
Here’s a video from the California State Bar Association which describes certification:
As a board certified attorney, Joseph Mona is a Certified Specialist in estate planning, probate, and trust law. Less than 1/2 of 1% of all California attorneys have achieved and been awarded this designation by the California State Bar.
We look forward to putting our experience, integrity and drive to work to achieve results for you.
