Great Estate Planning Services! Both Roy and Justin are thorough. Although initially there was a misunderstanding in beneficiary designation (due to our complex family structure) everything worked out great. We like the fact that we can send questions to the attorneys at no charge.

David got the job done at a very reasonable price. I wish I had started with him earlier since getting through the court system is not so easy and using a lawyer for an uncontested divorce is not necessary.

Just started the process but so far so good. We had scheduled an appt for a consultation at 12:45. He called me exactly at 12:45, he started the process right away and seems very organize and on top of things, which is what I was looking for. I tried to schedule other appointments with other lawyers and they called me back like 6 hours after I tried. I’m very sure that’s hes gonna do whatever it takes.

Kamela Laird is exceptional at what she does. She helped us navigate setting up a trust and wills easily and with great care. She is warm, totally approachable and highly professional. If there are areas she does not deal with she is well connected and will recommend others you can trust. We highly recommend her for your legacy needs.

I used Thumbtack to find an attorney to explore a complex real estate issue involving condominium law, fire and building codes and a soft story retrofit program and was refered to Jamin Horn. He responded quickly to my initial request. We have had a series of very comprehensive telephone conversations about my current legal situation. He seems very knowledgable about the many different aspects of my particular situation and has provided very clear, directed opinions and advice regarding my next steps. I found Jamin to very professional and considerate, asking appropriate and probing questions. He feels like my advocate, very willing to explore available legal options. I would absolutely choose Jamin to represent me when I need to continue my legal journey. Thanks, Jamin!

We used Jocelyn Wong-Rolle's services when we needed urgent legal documents (Living Will, property etc) before we left to another country and she was effecient, professional yet personable and she produced what we needed on time and it was top notch quality work. We worked with Jocelyn on another legal matter and again it was an urgent matter and again she was there for us. She was 100% on our job and gave us good sound legal advice on our parents legal matters. She is very effective and knowledgeable on not just what we needed her advise on but on many other legal issues we had not yet considered. She is also very affordable, considering all she provides.

Irina helped us creating Will and Trust for our family. She is very knowledgeable in that area. At initial consultation Irina helped us understand all little details what it is all about and what to expect, including timelines. She was very patient with us and explained us what exactly we need at each stage. Her office is very nice and conveniently located in Serramonte Business Center, next to Sprouts. Parking is easy and office is easy to find. Thank you Irina for working with us. We really appreciate your patience, professionalism and care. It was very convenient that your office also provides Notary services, so we didn't have to make separate arrangements to have it all signed.

Anthony handled my case extremely well and professionally. He was a huge support for my case and was great with following up on interactions. He was able to explain to me where we stood on the case and was realistic about what the outcomes may be. I was beyond satisfied with his services and would definitely work with him again, if I needed his assistance.

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.
