My aunt died in California

I hear that California lawyers have a system to identify the attorney for a person who is now deceased? Looking for my aunt’s attorney contact information. We are out of state and are her next of kin.

No, there is no central or comprehensive database or files of which attorney represented which persons. All you can do is look through all her papers and contact any friends, family, or other professionals (e.g. her accountant or tax preparer) who may have known who her lawyer was.


IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
