In the summer of 2018 I wanted to make some major changes in my will and some other important personal documents. My previous attorney was no longer in the area, and after a thorough search I chose Justin Stivers. I could not be happier with that choice. He was very personable, and though we had not met before, he spoke with me like a close friend in terms that I could easily understand. While they were not  exceptionally complicated documents., there were a few issues which I did not know how to phrase or deal with. Justin quickly understood what I wanted and produced documents that explained them clearly. Because I was planning a trip, I needed the documents prepared quickly, and Justin had them done well in advance of the time I had requested, with very clear instructions on how they should be executed I would unquestioningly seek Justin's advice on any question involving estate planning, and without hesitation I would recommend him to anyone.

After a year of trying to do my own Pro Se divorce, I finally broke down and decided to search for a lawyer. I contacted Ryanne and we immediately set up an appointment for the same week. Within a week, my parenting plan and marital settlement agreement were done and after I got everything signed and notarized, I had a final judgment day. I'm not sure everyone's case will be this quick as I had already filed on my own but Ryanne was amazing through this stressful process and her prices were extremely reasonable. I recommend her to all my friends and family who are dealing with a divorce or family law case. I can't thank her enough for for help.

Hello, my name is Giuseppe De Siena, I am writing to take information to get green card In Italy I have a company that is engaged in the sale and distribution of small food-beverage and household products and construction. I also managed for several years pizzeria-restaurant-bar-tobacco shop open 24 hours a day in Rimini. I would like to know if it is feasible having few economic resources to start a business and if having an American partner change anything from the standpoint of documentary and economical. I await news. In addition I wanted to add that my wife has a brother who has had about a year from the Green Card and living in LA, could serve for a family reunion? Finally, I have given birth to my second child in florida March 4 of this year, 40 days ago. Let me know if all this information you can find a good solution to get out of "this" Italian. Thank you. skipe: giuseppe de siena Cell 3663115523

Delightful experience working with Robyn from RLC Appraisals! She was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. She was patient and really seemed to take her time and walk us through everything in my parent's estate, even though her consultation fee was a flat price. She didn't rush us and helped us determine what items we wanted to keep and what should be sold and she helped get the right buyers to us. RLC Appraisals made what seemed like a teuly overwhelming task of organizing our parent's estate as painless as possible. Got done in one day more than we would have in weeks!! Thank you, thank you. Call and ask for Robyn, you will be so glad you did! - Claudia and Elyse

I continue to use Tiller and Rivera on several issues and find them to be prompt, thorough, and straight forward. I highly recommend this law firm.

About

Milhauser Law Firm is a boutique firm that specializes in all aspects of wealth transfer. Due to our narrow focus, we have the expertise to competently represent our clients in a specific area of law, rather than attempt to service every legal need for every client. Our smaller size allows us to be more responsive, more service oriented, and more cost effective than a large full-service law firm. We focus specifically on creating and implementing efficient structures that are designed to maximize the protection of wealth, and minimize the impact of transfer taxes, as assets are passed on to family members, loved ones or charitable beneficiaries. We also work with families in the probate and trust administration process after the loss of a loved one. Due to the complexity of the law in this area and the potential traps and pitfalls, it is critical that the fiduciaries and/or beneficiaries retain counsel to protect their rights. Proper representation can reduce the potential of costly errors, family discord and prohibitive estate settlement costs. Although we are located in South Florida, we proudly serve clients throughout the country.

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.
