Areas of Practice
Mika Domingo is an experienced trust and estates attorney, with a passion for helping others. She is a former Deputy Attorney General with the U.S. Department of Justice, and has appeared at state, appellate, and federal courts.

PROBATE AND TRUST LITIGATION
Mika Domingo is an experienced trust and estates trial lawyer with a passion for helping others. She is your trusted advisor as you go through a challenging time in your life.
Mika is extremely experienced in the courtroom, having served as Deputy Attorney General with the U.S. Department of Justice. She is a strong and effective advocate for her clients in the courtroom as well as in negotiations. She has appeared at the state, appellate, and federal courts.
Probate is the court supervised process in which the assets of the deceased are distributed to beneficiaries according to a will, if there is a will, and the bills are paid. If there is no will, the court makes decisions as to who is entitled to the assets of the deceased according to “intestate succession.”
Under California law, without a will, any assets you possess at the time of your death pass down to heirs or certain class members by intestate succession statutes (with some exceptions such as payable-on-death accounts or assets held in joint tenancy with right of survivorship) to allow for an organized and methodical way of distributing your assets.
Serving as a trustee is difficult and time-consuming. It also carries risks to the trustee: a trustee can be sued for failure to carry out the instructions of the trust (which are not always easy to understand).
If you have been named as a trustee, you should consult with an experienced attorney right away. We can help you understand your responsibilities and to efficiently administer the trust by working closely with you and your advisors, including your financial advisor, accountant, and other trusted advisors.
