Probate Court in LA is on the 2nd Floor. We formerly had Depts. 5, 9, and 11. A Family Law courtroom, Dept 7 was in the middle. That Department has been moved and the former Dept 7 location has been re-numbered 29 and will be where you will find Judge Paul and the Long Beach matters, among others will be heard there.
I hope this information will assist you in this transformation. Judge Beckloff is now scheduled to come down to Long Beach to explain all of this further on May 9 for our Brown Bag lunch in Dept. 4 at noon. So calendar that date from noon to 1:30 for a meeting on the Probate Court Consolidation which you will not want to miss.
Also, Judge Beckloff has made it clear that he sees the local Bar sections as being extremely important and hopes they will continue even with the move to LA. We are planning to continue so that we can continue to get MCLE and training; and, so that we can act as a liaison with the court of concerns we have as we have in the past about 20 years.
