Probate In California – Still Alive And Well

Why are California probate attorneys and probate lawyers so busy? Over half (55%) of all adult Americans do not have a will, a new survey shows, a figure that has remained pretty much unchanged over the past three years.

The survey on estate planning was conducted by Harris Interactive for Martindale-Hubbell,, one of the most comprehensive online resource for finding lawyers.

The survey asked 1,018 adults and found that more than half of them did not have a will. Only one in four Hispanic Americans (26%) had a will. Only one in three African American adults (32%) had a will.

At a minimum, get a California will if that’s where you live. Better yet, avoid probate in California and get a living trust too.
