Can't say enough about Leanne Martin with Golston & Martin, PLLC! She was referred to me by a good friend because my son needed help desperately regarding paternity and eventually visitation/custody. The moment we met with her we felt safe with her and whatever decisions she took for him. We both totally trusted her! We still have to call her time to time for advice and she is always available to help and always directs us in the right direction. There aren't very many lawyers that care about you after they collect their money but she does! Honestly do not know what we would of done without her! The staff is also super friendly and professional. It is hard to find lawyers with hearts anymore and she truly, truly cared about us. You can count on Leanne Martin! There were numerous times we had to email her on weekends or in the middle of the night and she literally would answer with what we needed to do! She discusses with you everything and always prepares you for what may come. She never left us out of the loop and explained everything in terms we could understand. Thank You, Leanne!......because of you, my son, my husband and I and my family now enjoy our now 1year old grandson, son, nephew, etc.!

I had several friends who lost parents over the past few months so I decided I had better finally get around to doing my own Will, just in case something were to happen. I wasn't sure where to turn so I Googled it and ended up here on Thumbtack. I spoke with two document preparers to that submitted quotes because their prices were really affordable but I just wasn't comfortable with them. I don't know what it was but some of their answers to questions seemed superficial, as if they didn't really understand the law behind it. One document prep person was better than they other but I just felt uneasy about using them to prepare my Will. I decided to give an attorney a try and chose Woods Law Group based upon the other reviews here and other places online. My experience with Trent Woods was great. When I asked questions he took the time to answer them in a great detail and really seemed to know and understand the law. He explained the pros and cons of different choices and I felt so comfortable with the decisions I made. In the end, I did a trust and a will and feel really good about that. Yes, Woods Law cost me more than the document preparers, but it was money well spent. I am confident in my plan and the document. Best of all, I have a good understanding of how my plan will work and feel peace knowing that I am really prepared if something were to happen to me. I just didn't get that feeling with the two document preparers (even though one was a paralegal). I would highly recommend people at least talk with a Trent Woods to see the difference.

When I needed an attorney to handle a real estate transaction that involved buying out two partners, I chose Jacque because I'd served on the board of a non-profit and was impressed with her work ethic, thoroughness and caring heart. As expected, she handled the situation impeccably, but it was when things threatened to go wrong when she truly shined. One of my partners had contract concerns which threatened to hold up the transaction and cost me thousands of dollars, I turned to Jacque for advice. She and I got on the phone with my partner and Jacque explained a complex element of the contract so well that she put my partner at ease and the transaction went through as planned. I refer her often, and will definitely call on her services again if I need her!

I've hired Nathan A. Prince on several occasions for contract-related work. Considering these were high-risk and high-value (i.e., six-figure) projects, I truly needed an attorney that I could trust to ensure I get the best possible deal while protecting me as much as possible. Nathan delivered.

Anthony was extremely knowledgeable in my experience in dealing with him. He gave sound legal advice at a time when I needed it the most. He was professional, direct and clear in the way he helped me. You never hope to NEED an attorney, however if the need did arise to require Anthony's services again, I would not hesitate to ask him. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    I was divorced from my Ex-wife for several. She had an attorney and I did not. Initially she got custody of our children even though they all wanted to be with me. Eight years after the final decree I hired Jordan LLC and she was able to modify my custody giving me custody and stopping all child and spousal support. In fact, she had my Ex paying me child support. I found Jordan Law LLC very helpful, knowledgeable, and tenacious. I would not hesitate to hire her again.

    My practice focuses on estate planning and probate. My goal with estate planning is to ensure that my clients set up a plan that will accomplish their goals should the unexpected happen, just as important is that the clients understand the plan they have in place.

My goal with probate is to ensure the process happens as efficiently as possible and also to make the process as painless as it can be.

    I provide clients with peace of mind and security by establishing comprehensive estate plans tailored to their unique goals and circumstances. I am also a probate attorney, meaning that I assist clients when a loved one dies with the administration of their will or estate. I also represent clients contesting wills and trusts. Many estate planning attorneys do not do probate and therefore are not aware of the potential mistakes their wills and trusts contain. I also work with business owners in business law and succession planning. As part of my estate planning practice, I help business owners minimize taxes while providing a smooth and harmonious transfer of their assets to their heirs.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What kind of lawyer does wills?

    No one likes talking about death, but it’s better than leaving your children or siblings to sort out your estate. A clearly planned will can make the time of mourning easier for everyone. An estate attorney will develop a legal will, create trusts on your behalf, and ensure the proper execution of your estate after you pass away.  

    Family attorneys and estate attorneys, also called probate and wills attorneys, can each prepare wills. The type of lawyer best suited to prepare your will depends on your situation. Most family attorneys provide services to prepare basic wills, including bequeathing property and personal items to family or naming a guardian for minor children. However, estate attorneys specialize in preparing wills in more complex situations. Consider hiring an estate attorney if you:

    • Have a large number of assets, especially those subject to estate taxes
    • Want to create a trust, such as allowing a spouse to live in your home until he or she dies and then leaving it to your children, or set up long-term care for a beneficiary
    • Have an ownership stake in a business
    • Expect someone to contest your will
    • Want to disinherit your spouse

    How do you find a good lawyer for wills?

    Estate planning is an important part of financial planning, so it’s important to find the right attorney to prepare your will. Although most family attorneys can put together a basic will, you may want one who specializes in wills and estate planning, especially if you have a lot of assets or a dependent to take care of. You may need an attorney who has expertise in planning and executing trusts and a background in taxes. Ask how the attorney charges; some charge by the hour, others have a set fee for writing wills, and some charge a percentage of the total value of the estate. Make a list of several potential wills attorneys to interview. Make sure you make a strong personal connection with your attorney — you need to be comfortable telling him or her personal, confidential information about your life, and you need to feel that the attorney is committed to solving any problems that may arise while writing your will. Also find out how long the attorney has practiced estate law and whether he or she has handled wills similar to yours.

    How much does it cost to have a living will?

    Either a family attorney or an estate, or wills, attorney can help you prepare a living will, either as part of your general estate planning or as an individual document. The cost typically ranges from $250 to $500, depending on your attorney’s fees; some charge by the hour, while others have a flat rate for writing a living will. Some states require living wills to be notarized, which adds an average of $5 to $15. In a living will — also called an advanced healthcare directive — you specify whether you want to be kept on life support if you become terminally ill or lapse into a persistent vegetative state. You can also answer other important questions in a living will like your preferences for tube feeding, artificial hydration and pain medication in situations when you cannot communicate your wishes on your own.

    How much should an estate plan cost?

    The cost of an estate plan depends largely on the number of parts it includes and the complexity of the documents. The most basic estate plan is simply a will, but it may also include designating power of attorney or a health care proxy to another person, writing a living will, or making a HIPAA authorization. The average national cost to make an estate plan ranges from $350 to $900, but can cost much more in complicated situations. For example, an estate attorney may charge only $900 to prepare a basic will providing outright distribution — meaning that property and assets are distributed upon death. Writing a more complicated will and holding assets in trusts can cost $3,000, or more. The process of creating an estate plan generally takes two to four weeks, starting with the initial consultation with the wills attorney to identify areas of concern in order to design an estate plan that fits your goals and budget. Once an estate plan is written, the attorney meets with the clients, a notary, and two neutral witnesses to review and sign the plan and associated documents.
