Tiffany has done a great job. She drove all the way to my house and went through all pages and told me what needed to be done. She filled out all for me .I am doing a small probate under $150,000 . She is even filing the papers for me so I dont have to drive the 70 miles and not know where to go when I get there . I am recommending her to all who want a job done right with a very sweet person.

Paul was very professional about my case and explained everything in detail. I would highly recommend him to take of anyone’s needs as an attorney. He was very easy to work with. I spoke to many other attorneys and even dropped one to higher Paul after I already gave the other attorney a non refundable deposit to start my case. He explained the process to us and was very helpful understanding it through out. Definitely someone you want to talk to and consider very highly to hire on as your attorney Milan

I consulted with Chris on my case and although I went with another attorney, Chris was very responsive and professional when we spoke on the phone. He listened to my concerns and followed up after our initial consultation. I called dozens of law firms all pushing for bankruptcy, which was not the way I wanted to go with my case. Chris was one of only two attorneys I spoke with who offered to look at the paperwork and review my options. I'm glad there are still good attorneys out there willing to fight for consumers. Thank you, Chris!

This is my second time working with Jan Meyer for my estate planning needs. Jan is very knowledgable, professional and enjoyable to work with, but in addition to all these qualities she is honest and fair with her pricing. The other attorneys I contacted were more concerned about their outrageous fees. Jan really cares about her clients and wants to do a quality job. I trust Jan and highly recommend her services.

My wife & I recently hired Attorney Kyle G. Walker to do our Living Trust, Pour Over Wills & Advance Healthcare Directives. He came to our home explained the legalities & processes in layman's terms & honored the Fee he quoted prior to our appointment. We met the following week with him to sign & have witnessed &notarized our signatures. He had placed all of our legal documents in a very nice notebook with divides for easy reference. Attorney Kyle G. Walker exemplifies Ethics beyond Reproach & we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you give him a call ...You'll be very glad you did !! Keep up the Great Work Kyle by helping folks AVOID PROBATE Court !

About

When you are looking for an attorney, what are you really looking for? EXPERIENCE: I have been practicing law successfully for over 30 years. RESPONSIVE: I return phone calls and emails promptly. I keep my clients informed as to what is happening on their legal matters. In fact, if I get a phone call asking me the status of a matter, I feel I haven't done my job. AFFORDABLE: They say you get what you pay for. That's not always true. You can pay a lot and not get what you are paying for. But the opposite is not true. Pay a little and you will get what you're paying for. I am not the least expensive nor the most expensive. But my clients receive "value" for their costs. In over 30 years, I have had only one client complain about his bill. And I told him if he didn't think it was fair, he didn't have to pay it. I like solving people's problems and avoiding a court room. Litigation is costly, it is time consuming, and it rarely gives any party a feeling of true "justice".

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 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 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 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.
