I am still working with Ms. McKinley but so far I have only positive feedback about working with her. She communicates back via email or phone call, she is responsive to suggestions, she doesn’t sugar coat and she will work with you. When working with attorneys, the hardest part is getting them to call you back. She at least notifies you if she is delayed or needs to get back to you, instead of leaving you wondering what is next. I am using her as my divorce attorney. I wouldn’t want any of my friends or family to go through divorce, but if so I would certainly recommend Ms. McKinley.

I had an issue with my company when I was working in Virginia. Before I found Rachel, I had an interview with several attorneys and this issue could not be solved they said. But when I spoke with Rachel on the phone she listened to me very carefully and she completely understood my issue. After our first conversation we agreed to work together without even meeting face to face. The case was successfully solved within a few months with her effort. I highly recommend her and her company.

My name is Young B. Kim. I am a semiconductor designer at Samsung Electronics. I was referred to Attorney Chang by a number of my colleagues at Samsung and from International SoC Design Conferences. Initially I contacted Attorney Change regarding my qualification under National Interest Waiver and get my green card via that route, but Attorney Chang recommended me to take the route of doing the First priority person of extraordinary ability. We submitted the EB1 petition with premium processing and it was approved exactly 7 days after the submission!!! I was so happy that I will be immigrating with my family to the US- The interview at US embassy at Korea was a breeze, took about 5 minutes. Even though Aaron carefully went over what I will be asked at the Embassy, I didn't get to do any of the explanations to the embassy officer. I will be moving to Portland, Oregon the new job in August!!! Highly recommend Attorney Chang for his expertise!!!"

The biggest compliment I can give is that Lisa took the stress out of processing my divorce. Her professionalism, organizational skills and experience all worked to together to make a difficult life transition easier than I ever anticipated. Lisa was supportive, understanding, patient and most of all a rock to rely on as she navigated me through the legal system. I'm so thankful I found her and would welcome working with her again.

Attorney Umeh helped me in my divorce. My husband tried to hide his income to avoid child support, but she got me custody and the right child support. She always returned my phone calls and emails, and was good at explaining my options.

Very professional, Very easy to work and very knowledgeable. Even before I hire him, he was very responsive to questions and options. Other law firms and attorneys insisted on a face to face meeting prior to hiring. Anthony was okay with allowing multiple questions before engaging into a contract. His estimate for fees were not only good but were not as high as expected and I got a refund. I highly recommend! He saved me at least $2000 in unnecessary legal fees.

Gray Legal, P.C. has provided me and my family with quality legal services over the past several years. The knowledge that Nakia Gray, Esq. has about various legal issues is what initially impressed me. I thought I knew what I needed but after a meeting with her, I really found out that I needed a professional to see me through the process. From assisting me with creating a will that not only speaks to assets but health as well to providing services through a divorce, Gray Legal P.C. is my first choice for all my legal needs. Gray Legal was timely with submitting documents on my behalf, very responsive to my phone calls and emails and professional in our face to face meetings. I felt valued and I also felt like my business mattered to the company. When I hired Gray Legal P.C. to handle my legal needs each time I walked away feeling more secure that everything was going to be ok. I definitely give Gray Legal, PC 5 Stars!

    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.
