California probate attorneys
Our Oakland probate attorneys understand the probate legal process that involves a court determining the validity of the deceased's will, the status of his property, and how the property is to be distributed according to the will. Typically the will names the personal representitive, but the court will appoint an administrator if there is no will, no executor is named in the will, or the person named as executor in the will is unable to or chooses not to fulfill their duties as executor.
IRS tax lawyer
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may conduct an audit of your tax return if they suspect that you have not reported all of your income or made improper deductions. Clients who face an IRS tax audit are often scared and unsure of what action to take, and some are concerned about going into debt or receiving a jail sentence. If you have been contacted by the IRS concerning an Oakland tax audit, you should contact an Oakland IRS defense attorney right away.
