PACIONE LAW FIRM
Los Angeles Probate, Conservatorship and Trust Attorney.
Areas of Practice
Our areas of expertise include the litigated and transactional aspects of trust and estate matters (including probates, trusts and conservatorships), as well as business affairs (corporations, LLC’s, partnerships and contract disputes).
WE KNOW LAW
The clients we represent include established Hollywood executives, internationally recognized athletes, zealous entrepreneurs, pensioner widows, and everything in between.
The word “probate” has earned a negative connotation in modern parlance. Although most people are not sure what it means, they usually know that they wish to avoid it.
The meaning is relatively straight forward: when we are hired to handle a probate, we assist individuals with the transfer of assets from the dead to the living by court order.
The term “estate planning” is self-explanatory; it involves organizing and structuring a person’s or a family’s personal and financial affairs. At the Law Office of Mario A. Pacione, we use estate planning tools to assist clients with a variety of issues.
When it comes to estate planning, studies show that the majority of Californians fail to do it. It is not an easy endeavor.
“Estate administration” or “trust administration” is the process of carrying out a person’s planned wishes and administering his or her estate following his or her incapacity or death. It is the final winding down of a person’s final affairs and distributing his or her assets in accordance with his or her estate plan. An estate is usually administered by a person or entity (such as a bank, law firm or accountancy firm), who was chosen by the maker of an estate plan to execute the maker’s wishes and turn those wishes into reality. This is the “personal representative” of the estate.
We represent persons seeking to help and protect loved ones who lack the ability or capacity to help themselves. Conservators manage the personal and financial care of dependent adults by court order.
Trust and Probate Litigation
We help clients pursue AND defend lawsuits over wills, trusts, conservatorships, accountings and elder abuse.
We represent individuals through formation of corporate and other entities, as well as ongoing legal issues relating to security interests, buying and selling businesses and litigating business disputes.

Mario was a super lawyer in the court and I feel like I got good value for my money. I send all of my customers to him and will use him again for my next expansion project.
– Hank M.
Mario is really a great lawyer. He knows the ins and outs of family trust matters and frankly it could not have gone better. He is not your stereotypical lawyer was always kind, listened and didn't charge us one dime more that the retainer he estimated in the beginning of the case.
– Cindy A.
