Mr. Loren J. Randall is the most kind and understanding attorney I have ever had the pleasure to work with! His knowledge and calm demeanor really helped my sister navigate the path ahead and plan with confidence. Loren helps make the hard and confusing decisions very easy to make! He really goes out of his way to be accommodating and our time and needs were valued. We are so grateful to have Loren J. Randall help us through this hard time! He is truly a caring and determined individual. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing advice and representation with divorce and family law.

Darlene came over to my house and provided great guidance for the applicable law I was interested in (Real Estate & Tax law). Good advise is perhaps the best investment you can make with your time and money and we got some great building blocks for the start of our engagement.

Extremely helpful in all aspects of financial planning. Scott and his team are professional but relatable, they tell you things clearly and make complicated financial regulations etc understandable. They always provide me with options and advice but no pressure. The respond very quickly and are extremely organized and efficient. They make the complicated financial requirements (signatures, data needs, etc) easy and quick and stay focused on your goals. I would reccomend Scott and his team for anyone who cares about their financial future - from 22 to 82 they can provide everyone with the financial planning help that can change their life. I am so lucky to have found this group, and will continue to reccomend them to anyone that asks.

Kelcy has been extremely great to work with. I did not know a lot about investments, retirement plans, or life insurance and Kelcy really helped teach me. She also helped me figure out what I need to plan for my future and on top of that she helped me figure out what I could afford and how to maximize my plans and contributions to fit my budget. I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for financial assistance!!

About

Estate planning involves more than just tax planning. Estate creation, income replacement, and the orderly transfer of property from one generation to the next, continue to be the primary objectives of most estate plans. Estate planning provides for the care of minor children, disabled children and elderly parents. It is also important to be certain there are enough life insurance proceeds, liquid assets, and other sources of income to maintain the family’s current living standard.

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.
