Re: Heir Entitlement

I have no way to respond to your question as I don't know what businesses were owned by the decedent and I have no familiarity with any of the businesses you mention. If you wish to discuss this further and are able to provide more details,

contact me at my office.

Re: Heir Entitlement

Are you located in CA? You are asking this of CA attorneys. In what way are you an heir? Direct decendant or child? Was there a trust? Was there a will? There are many other questions that need to be answered before any type of solution or "game plan" can be formulated.

Please feel free to contact me at the email provided by Lawguru or through our firm's site at PasadenaEstatePlanning.com.
