Mr. Stanton represented my son on a criminal charge. We live out of state and had no knowledge of attorneys in the state where the charge was filed. The Thumbtact website helps us to hire Mr. Stanton. He always answered my phone calls promptly. I did not meet him until the hearing. We were very satisfied with his hard efforts and better than expected results.

A couple years ago, I needed an attorney for a custody case. I was fortunate enough to find Kathy Everette. Kathy is very sincere in the fact that she truly cares about her clients. I not only won my custody case, I also ended up gaining a friend. I would highly recommend Kathy if you are in need of legal counsel. Carol L.

They should call him Luke "Skywalker." He fights powerful for the powerless. He is a great attorney and even better person.

Mr. Hastings made me feel like I was his only client though I knew that wasn't the case. As a first time offender when I got booked for a DUI I felt beyond awful, like my whole world was crumbling. Thankfully to Mr. Hastings positive and reassuring attitude I got out of my funk pretty quickly. This is an attorney that has the analytical skills needed while also being an absolute people person. He checked in with me every week, really made me feel heard when I spoke, kept me well informed, was always available and most of all got me the BEST results! I honestly feel like he was looking out for me... Well at the risk of sounding like a paid promotion I'll stop now. lol I hope to never need a criminal defense attorney again but if I do I will most definitely be calling him!

Mr. Snyder has helped me through a very difficult time of obtaining conservatorship for my mother and sadly now going through the probate process. Returns calls/emails timely and keeps you updated on next steps.

About

Many law firms have paralegals do a lot of the legwork. While I do have a paralegal, I work on every single case that our office takes and am readily available to speak to on the phone with a client for any questions she may have. As cliche as it may sound, I truly enjoy the fact that I get to help people who have fallen on hard times. Having debt causes extreme stress for most people, and I am thankful that I can do something about it.

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 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 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 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.
