If you have been named the executor, administrator or personal representative of a loved one’s estate, or as Successor Trustee of a family or other trust, you want an experienced probate & trust administration attorney to guide you through the process. You want someone who understands the law and legal process, and who has worked closely with others in similar situations, helping individuals protect their own interests and the interests of an estate or trust.

At the Arcadia and Glendora offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, our lawyers have decades of experience handling estate and trust administration matters. We opened our first office in Los Angeles in 1962, and senior partner Gary Morris has been with the firm since 1972. We offer a full range of professional services to individuals involved in probate or trust administration, with investment advisors and money managers, a real estate broker, an insurance agent, and a tax and accounting professional on staff to assist you.

To set up a confidential meeting, contact our office or call us in Arcadia or Glendora at 626-445-1212 (toll-free at 1-800-529-5570).

At the offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, we represent clients in northeast Los Angeles, including Altadena, Pasadena, Monrovia and Duarte. We also maintain locations in Whittier and Burbank, CA.
