When you have been designated as executor or administrator of an estate, or as a Trustee of a trust for the benefit of others, you may be uncertain of your rights and responsibilities toward others and with respect to estate or trust property. You want an experienced, knowledgeable and skilled lawyer who has worked closely with others in similar circumstances to guide you through the process.

At the Southern California offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, we bring decades of experience to people with concerns about the probate process or the administration of a trust. We opened our first office in the Los Angeles community in 1962, and senior partner Gary Morris has been with the firm since 1972. We take a comprehensive approach to probate and trust administration, offering additional professional services to help you accomplish your objectives. Our staff includes investment advisors and money managers, a real estate professional, an insurance agent, and a tax and accounting specialist.
