San Diego, California has two probate courts. The first is located at the Madge Bradley Court House located on Fourth Avenue in San Diego. The second is located at the North County Court House located on Melrose Avenue in Vista. Judge Klein has the current assignment and, at the San Diego County Bar Association meeting in January of 2008, it was announced that there would be a change to Judge Brown.
It is very important to retain a law firm which has experience practicing before the Judge who will hear the case. This is important since the attorney needs to know the local rules of San Diego as well as the court room practice before each Judge. While all Judges follow the same laws, the procedures in the court rooms may be different. For example, some Judges allow attorneys into the “well” which is the area between counsel table and the “bench” where the Judge sits and some do not. Our law firm of Law Office of Scott C. Soady, A Professional Corporation, LLP can use our experience before the Probate Judges to assist with your legal matter. Please feel free to e mail us with any questions.
