I'm so glad that I picked Attorney Richard Mable among the crowd of over 200+ other lawyers in Boston. His legal fee was very humble but his work was beyond the expectation. I live in Alabama but the divorce case filled & resolved in Boston. I have never met Mr. Mable but he fights for me aggressively. He spent lot of time on the phone with me for details then brought them up for a good deal resolution before going to the court. He saves my life, my time and especially the "peace of mind" afterward. I'd recommend you to meet with him so he can help you when needed. Thank you so much Attorney Richard Mable. God bless you.

I had been in a tenant/landlord lawsuit for months-- horrible and costly-- and was referred to Paul when my attorney suffered a family crisis. Paul took on my case and all the attorney's other cases, in addition to his own pending cases. It took him ONE day to resolve my conflict and let me move on with my life. I wish, wish, wish I had met him sooner, but I know that I can be saved again, any time I need, by calling him first!

She handled my divorce case and I could not ask for a better attorney. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. She knows exactly what she is doing and offers emotional support as well. She understands it is a trying time. She went above and beyond what I expected to get from a divorce attorney. I would highly recommend her as you will not be dissappointed. She is also very reasonably priced.

Hire this lady! Leila helped me form my corporation and also wrote a Will and Trust for me and my spouse. I was very nervous about working with a lawyer because I didn't know what to expect. Leila was professional, responsive, and the work she produced was of the highest quality. Her fees were very reasonable. Much less than I expected to pay. She explained everything very clearly and was always willing to go the extra mile to make me happy. I recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer.

I recently filed for bankruptcy. This was my first time filing and first time working with a lawyer. From the very beginning He was genuinely concerned about working towards lifting the weight off my shoulders and helping me through the entire process. He even beat a competetor's price which he did not have to do. Overall, he helped me through the bankruptcy and it felt like a breeze. no headache, no pile of paperwork, and no calls from creditors. Attorney Robert Creasia guided me through the entire process and did virtually all the work and kept me updated and reassured the whole time. Thank You so very much!!

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.
