Upland residents and the state of California will find that the process of probate, which means handing a loved one’s estate in the event of their passing, can be extremely difficult with intricate documents and extended periods of waiting. But at NM Law, APC, we take pride in being there to help our clients navigate the process and hopefully relieve some of the pressure and stress-related challenges associated with probate, during what is already a very difficult time in life. We keep the family and estate executor in the loop with the process of making sure that your loved one’s assets are distributed as effectively and efficiently as possible.


For a Will to be valid (or probated), it must go through the court process, mandated by law, which is costly and time-consuming. Many people don’t know that you cannot transfer a loved one’s assets simply based on a Will. It is not efficient, nor is it a quick way to handle your business, and all information that pertains to the decedent’s assets and property and those beneficiaries that are reon the receiving end to them is made a matter of public record and can be accessed by anyone. By comparison, a Trust Administration privately processes the estate and gives the trustee access to the assets and management of the trust immediately.

Our experienced attorneys at NM Law are willing to assist the residents of Upland with our estate planning services. Regardless of which season of life you may find yourself in, early, mid, or aged, we are happy to represent you in planning your estate affairs. For many families, estate planning doesn’t have to get complicated and messy. It can be very clear and concise, and once completed, it usually brings a general feeling of a lifted burden.


When you hire the attorneys at NM Law, APC to handle your estate planning, we make sure that the desires of your estate are clearly and correctly followed through with careful documentation.
