Miguel showed up to my house and was very respectful and polite. He is helping me with a probate case where my brother is involved who stole over $150,000.00 from me and we don't talk. Miguel was sensitive to my underlying issues with my brother and has made this case so much easier for me to go through with it. He always replys to my messages quickly and even put a little humor in it to make me smile. He has kept me informed of all he has done and is going to do and freely answers any questions I have. I would recommend Miguel to any of my friends knowing that he will do an excellent job. Gina from Santa Clarita

My husband and I were very pleased with Tiffany's help in putting together a living trust and other documents for us. Tiffany is a lot less expensive than hiring an attorney, but is just as competent and knowledgeable in living trust issues. She gave us great advice and information, and was very responsive regarding questions we had. And we were very happy with the end result -- an updated and much improved, clearer living trust and related documents. We will definitely hire Tiffany again should we need legal document assistance!

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

Vanessa did the work as promised and in a timely manner. We eventually needed legal representation and when we turned copies of the documents over to the attorney, even he was impressed with her work! Much appreciation for your work and time spent on the project. 👍

I am so impressed with the staff at Action Document Center. I was greeted with compassion and felt like they really cared about my situation. They completed all of the paperwork for my divorce and even assisted me in obtaining custody and support for my children. I can not recommend Araceli or the staff at this office enough. Give them a shot you will not be disappointed.

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!

Our work has just begun but so far, David has been generous with his time, very fair with his price, and knowledgeable about the particulars of what we need. Also, he demonstrates integrity about revealing what he does not know and will point us in the right direction in that area.

Barbara has been my attorney for around 30 years and has always served my best interest. It's comforting to know that she always takes my phone calls. She brilliantly negotiated my divorce settlement and set up my Living Trust among other legal financial matters. I TRUST her explicitly.

I needed some legal documents done for my non profit organization. I contacted Valerie Coleman, and had the best experience with this company. Not only were my documents done well, they were professional, well written, but most of all efficient. I would recommend this company to anyone in need.

I had been emailing Angela with Solutions for weeks telling her I was expecting to receive real estate sales contracts for her review "at any time." It took nearly a month. When I did finally receive the documents, she reviewed them and gave me her opinion in less than 24 hours. Her responsiveness and professionalism was exceptional, and her fees were a small fraction of what a lawyer would have charged for the same service. I recommend Angela with Solutions wholeheartedly!

Sentrex Paralegal Services performed a solid service for a divorce with child custody ands visitation issues along with property division. The forms were filled out in a timely and professional manner. There is a Family Law Attorney that is available for hire on a limited scope basis so clients don't have to spend a lot of money with huge retainer fees. The fees are very reasonable, and I'm very happy that I made the decision to hire Sentrex Paralegal Services. This service is not like other shady paralegals that I've seen. Don't be shy. Make the phone call for a consultation.

When I was served with Divorce papers, I was in a state of shock and needed to find a Great Lawyer quickly. I was referred to several lawyers in my area from my Employers provided legal service. After speaking to several Attorneys, I called HMA Law Group and spoke to Attorney Harry Mirchandaney. I immediately felt reassured. Mr. Mirchandaney explained the process, and was straightforward with telling me what to expect. He listened to my concerns and was candid in telling me if what I was asking for was reasonable. I normally don’t write reviews but after three years of working with Attorney Harry Mirchandaney I felt it was the least I could do. If you need to find a Good Lawyer, I would definitely recommend Attorney Harry Mirchandaney, with HMA Law Group. Tel: (800) 756-1091 www.ThinkHmaLaw.com

Gayle helped me through my "relatively" amicable divorce. She keeps everything easy for her clients, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me through my divorce. When things got complicated, she simplified things and always gave thorough explanations of every scenario I had in my mind. Bottom line is that she is a straight-shooter and I didn't have to pay up the wazoo for an attorney. She is the best! She's efficient, thorough, knowledgeable, honest, and available! Even during a very busy holiday season, she always responded so quickly! Thank you Gayle, for everything!

Review of Cloud Paralegal Services, LLC Mood Rehman was amazing from the very start! I'm the type of person that asks a million questions, and reads everything, and he was really patient with answering my questions and making me feel really secure about the process of dealing with the court. He was very flexible with my schedule and making time for in person meetings to go over the case at my location. He was easy to reach by email or phone and always answered promptly. I was updated on the process and each step without my having to call for the information myself. Professional, knowledgeable, and sincere are the qualities of a good paralegal and Cloud Paralegal Services more than exceeded my expectations. Mr Rehman is professional yet friendly. He took the time to explain everything from beginning to end, in the preparation of my legal forms, and their processing through the court system. I sent an e-mail inquiry hoping to receive a response right away and that it wouldn't cost too much due to my circumstances. I was so happy when I received an email response promptly with some answers and important information regarding my situation, without having paid or even having discussed the cost of preparing the documents. He made me feel that he was really willing to help and that he wanted to me to have the best information available on the court documents and the procedure in order to not only have the forms accepted by the court, but for my petition to be granted. I am very pleased with his courtesy and professionalism. He went out of his way and spent his valuable time to help me on a totally unrelated issue and I cannot thank him enough. I would absolutely recommend him because he was also extremely compassionate and understanding. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

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.
