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.
