Amazing service! I will admit I was a bit skeptical since his fees are only $100 to be an attorney for a sale of a home, but he came through 100%. He handled everything for me while I was out of state. I had no worries. Any questions I had he answered expeditiously!!! Definitely recommend Frank for anyone looking for a no nonsense attorney.

Mike provides thorough assistance at a very reasonable price. He does not charge for phone calls or emails or regular mail, and is always eager to spend more time to help people understand what is being done. He goes out of his way for his clients, something extraordinary in his profession. His bills are transparent from the start. There are no hidden charges or surprises. It was a pleasure dealing with him. Mike makes doing wills and trusts and POA documents an absolute breeze. My wife and I thoroughly recommend him and will be happy to do business with him in the future.

An attorney that definitely works for you. Bob is hands down worth every dollar charged. I was astonished by his meticulous work ethic, he works to make sure you are not overcharged even if you missed something trust me, Bob will find it. This is my second closing, my first attorney, I heard from for the first time at the closing. I heard from Bob at a minimum two times per week, sometimes just to let me know how things are processing. I highly recommended attorney Pinzur for you realtor or legal matters.

Kyle was very patient in understanding my concerns and guided me towards possible options to take even though those were not in his economic interest. I am very thankful to Kyle for sharing his experience on resolving similar issues. He understood hiring an attorney at this time was not in my best interest, he still spent time talking with me and ensuring my satisfaction. I look forward to working with Kyle in the future.

Nancy accomplished in 3 months what my previous attorney had taken 3 years. Documents were provided quickly and she coached me thru the entire process. I feel very comfortable speaking with Nancy. She articulated the law very well. She is polite courteous and kind. She is now handling the second phase of gaining custody of my daughter.

      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.
