This lady Darlene A. Cypser strikes me as very powerful. She is not only an attorney-at-law with a 30-year history of First Class tax preparation services, she is also an Author, a MovieMaker, and…God knows what else. When she returns with my completed tax returns I’m looking forward to maybe perhaps talking to her about other potential projects we might think of doing together. It would be easy to work with her because she lives just right around the corner from me. We could walk to each others’ places, or ride bicycles. No need to drive.

No one wants to hire an attorney, but, when you do you should hire the best. That is what I got at R&H. The fast and decisive action save me a lot of hassle (and money). Thanks to the entire staff.

I contacted Dave Rich several years ago to file for divorce. Unfortunately, at the time, I convinced myself we could try again. Dave was extremely understanding. I contacted Dave again 2 years later and we got the process started. He was so understanding as to where I was coming from and always respected my decisions and needs. His guidance was invaluable as I was not in the best frame of mind and having a very difficult time seeing the forest through the trees and keeping my emotions in check. He was able to process the paperwork without a court appearance and also obtained money from my ex-husband that he attempted to hide. He fought for me when I needed it most and did everything he could to keep my costs down and succeeded. Dave was always available to me and will remain my council of choice for any future situations and will be assisting me with additional services to include a will to be drawn up for my daughters. If you need an attorney, Dave Rich should be your first call. I am very happy with the results he provided.

    Jordan Thomas of the Thomas Law Group is an exceptional attorney who never failed to impress me with his comprehensive approach to my legal services. He was consistently in contact with me throughout the process, creative in his approach, and professional without appearing artificial. Following a prior unsatisfactory experience with a different Colorado attorney, I realize now that these are invaluable attributes when securing legal representation, and Mr. Thomas has them in spades. Highly recommend!

    About

    Roger Himes, Esq. I took very early retirement after 25 years as a lawyer handling litigation and various other legal matters. Now I am back doing limited legal work, out of my home instead of an office, and passing on savings to my clients. If you don't need someone with a large prestigious office, my fees are $100 per hour rather than the standard $250-350. However, I do no court appearances, and only do things I can do at home on my computer: wills, trusts, estates and probate, and business matters such as corps, LLCs, non profits, and 501(c)(3) filings. I also do mediation, trying to get adverse parties to agree. I will also make home visits if the situation warrants. For more personal information, please visit my site.

    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.
