Verified review

Hiring Toronjo & Prosser Law was an easy decision because after telling my story to several attorneys, Derrick was the only one who was willing to educate me, and make sure I had a solid financial plan to recover after bankruptcy. The process was smooth, and stress free. Thank you for helping me and my family. Since discharge, I have already began working on rebuilding my life and credit. His rates were fair and affordable. Thank you!

In meeting with Avia Gauthier, she was very pleasant and treated me like a person and not just a perspective case just for the money, Very caring business professional and listen to my thoughts and questions and guided me and responded to me in a very calming manor and not just a lawyer that just patronizes for the money.

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.

I called Chris for advice about a real estate question I had. He answered the phone himself and took time out of his day to listen and give me advice at that moment. He never made me feel like a bother or just $$$. Chris actually followed up with me the following day and provided excellent information. I hope I never have to use an Attorney again but if I do Chris will be the first person I call.

      Kari is bright and insightful. We had a productive phone interview. She had a definite plan should we need to move forward, though in the end, it was unnecessary. She was generous with her time and expertise.

      About

      Leigh Hilton is an estate planning attorney with vast experience and specialization in elder law. While Leigh’s practice primarily focuses on estate planning, there is more to estate planning than drawing up wills and trusts. Estate planning also includes setting up guardianships, planning for children with special needs, establishing written requests for medical care, Medicaid planning, planning for veterans’ benefits, business estate planning, and even real estate planning. This is one reason why, in addition to providing her core estate planning services, Leigh also specializes in probate and probate litigation, elder law, business law, and real estate law.

      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.
