Ordinarily, a conservator appointed by the probate division of the Superior Court would have authority to close down the law practice. However, if there is no conservator appointed, and no one is interested in taking over responsibility for the attorney's estate, then you can contact the State Bar of California(###) ###-####, and request assistance. The chief trial lawyer for the State Bar has the authority to ask the Superior Court to permit the Bar to take over responsibility for the law practice, pursuant to Bus. & Prof. Code Section 6190 et seq.
