California’s fee schedule for attorneys is found at Probate Code Section 10810 and for executors is at Probate Code Section 10800 and is a somewhat complicated formula. For ease of approximation, a simplified formula can be used. It works for probate estates with a value between $100,000 and $1 million. It is 2% of the probate estate value + $3000. That sum would be the statutory fee for the attorney and the executor would receive an identical sum.

*The Attorney receives one-half of this sum and the executor receives the other half. However, often extraordinary fees are allowed which could make this total even higher!
