I provide a free initial telephone consulatation and I am happy to answer your questions.
I charged fixed fees for my estate planning services, and statutory fees for probate services. Be sure to watch my video on this site "Basic California Probate Procedure Start to Finish." Just click on "See All Videos" at the videos section.
I also can quote fixed fees for most noncontested legal matters so you know the costs up front. When I charge hourly rates, I bill by quarter and tenth hour increments.
Probate, Estate Planning, and Marital Agreements, all require an attorney who not only knows the practice area, but who can also relate to people with compassion and understanding when they are vulnerable and who understand the importance of family dynamics and avoiding conflict. Zev Brooks is such an attorney. When you trust Zev with your probate, estate planning, or marital agreement, you are not only getting a skilled practitioner, but someone who understands that probate can be stressful and that estate planning and marital agreements can be delicate. Zev listens to his clients and strives to meet their needs, both legal and emotional, so that they don't feel overwhelmed or unduly stressed.
As a sole practitioner, my goal is to provide my clients both quality legal assistance and quality customer service.
I know that communication is one of the most important elements in maintaining a healthy, productive attorney-client relationship.
I, therefore, promptly return all my client's phone calls, and keep my clients informed at every stage of their legal matter.
Unlike many attorneys, who consider their client's questions a nuisance, I enjoy taking the time to educate my clients about the legal process and their particular legal matter so that they can be part of the decision making process.
Zev Brooks has often represented clients as a consultant when they chose to pursue a legal matter on their own. Call to find out exactly how Zev Brooks can help you navigate the pitfalls of self representation, often for a fixed fee.
