I posted back in August asking about a living trust.....great advice and I wish we had been able to implement.

Grandma went down hill quickly and died last week. They were unable to get the living trust, so headed to probate.

Any suggestions for a good lawyer to assist with probate?

Only good thing to come out of this is my mom is getting her and my dad's living trust set up.

Sorry for your loss.
Creating a trust could have been done in one day.

Probate is a legal process, boilerplate.
I'm not sure if there's such thing as a bad probate attorney.

You can shop around but I think their fees are set by the state,
It isn't cheap (and a lot more than what a trust would have cost)
and it can take 6 months to a year to settle.
