We hired Kavitha Mathew and D. Scott MacKenzie for help in a misdemeanor case of our sons that we could not get resolved. They took the time to speak with me and to explain How the process worked and what to expect. They were both very knowledgable and also very respectful. We have been updated and are looking for a resolution very soon. I highly recommend these attorneys and should I have need they would definitely be our first choice.

Ms. Gauthier represented me in my divorce case in Dallas county within a 48 hour time frame notice. I was awed by her professionalism, yet courteous, fast, and effective service! The service her firm provides was impeccable from beginning to end, and even afterwards... Communication was excellent! Her assistant was very accommodating and they both respected my wishes throughout the entire ordeal. Ms. Gauthier made my case worry and hassle free and I will definitely use her as my personal attorney again, and refer her to family, acquaintances and friends as well!

Ross Tew is a terrific estate planning attorney with reasonable rates! He handled our complete Trust, Wills, Powers of Attorney, and more in a professional, timely manner. He took the time to come to our house and fit into our busy schedule and even came to our location for signing papers. He answered all our questions in a way we could understand legal issues and gave us confidence in everything he did. He is not always easy to reach, because he values his family time, but came through for us, even during the holidays.

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Courtney. I contacted Johnson, Loyd, & Schmitz via phone out of desperation and I received a phone call back from Courtney within minutes. I was immediately put at ease by speaking with her regarding my case. At that moment I knew I had to hire her. She has been nothing but attentive and extremely responsive since day one and is a warrior in the courtroom. She has made this difficult time a lot easier on my kids and I. I highly recommend this firm to anybody looking for a family law attorney.

Working with Mark was amazing. He assured me throughout the process that we should not have any issues with the filing. Mark promptly answered all of my questions and always returned my phone calls and emails in a timely manner. I experienced a slight hiccup after the discharge and he directed me through it and now everything has been taken care of. I am so relieved and I am beyond pleased that I chose the firm.

After experiencing frustration with the original attorney I hired, a friend referred me to The Ashmore Law Firm. Angelica was the lead attorney for my case. Her helpfulness in walking me through the most difficult time in my life was amazing. At times she had to hold my hand and she did so with care and compassion. She with me every step of the way. Not only was I more than pleased with her performance as my attorney, but I also feel I have made a friend. I highly recommend The Ashmore Law Firm for any of your Family Law needs.

I first want to start off by saying that this was my first time using this site & it was very helpful! Ms. Fanka went above and beyond what I expected, and immediately started working on my case once I contacted her. Not only was she able to help me win my case, but found right down to the dollar the mistakes that my complex had made. She handled the whole process in just a matter of 2 1/2 weeks, and she really got them on their toe! Whether it was early morning or a late night, she always answered my calls or returned them within 15 minutes. The one thing that sticks out most about Ms. Fanka is not only did she help me, she gave me the knowledge and tools to never be put back in that unfortunate situation. I am so thankful for her help & will recommend her to anyone I know!

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.
