You will not find a more straightforward or trustworthy lawyer to work with. I came to Mr. Buitron with a half-complete divorce Id attempted to do on my own. When I found out I was looking at an additional 6 month waiting period, I was frustrated and worried that I'd be losing my pending home loan. Mr. Buitron did not take advantage of my time constraints and understood my financial constraints. He did everything he said he would do. Emily, his paralegal, was professional, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. My divorce was finalized today! Overall, I'm very happy with my experience and would recommend Law Office of Mr. Buitron 100%!!

I'm looking forward to working with Mr.Niedens, he listened and answered all my questions and concerns. I feel he is not only making sure I get the reassurance I need out of this ordeal but making sure at the end of the day it's what's best for my child. I feel that he's not only my attorney but a friend. Plus his office is amazing!!!! Loved the view. I felt comfortable the whole time

Jim is very thorough and knowledgeable about family and military law. He does research into the issues and won't take your case unless he can help. He won my Former Spouse Benefits case after my entitlements were wrongfully denied. He works tirelessly to make sure he explains your ongoing legal case. In fact, because he devoted time to get to know my case, I asked him to represent me again. I communicate with him via MyCase and I can download documents whenever I need them. I am more than satisfied with his representation. I recommend him to my friends, family, and clients. The only thing I would change is being able to hire him sooner. He is a passionate professional that cares about practicing law with integrity.

An oil producer had made an offer for my royalties on 40 acres, of 3/16 and I would pay for all of the production and transportation charges. Even though for numerous years in the oil patch, I had written many leases, I did not know how to precisely word the new OG&M lease that I knew was legal and acceptable to which I was entitled. The initial on line and one phone call consultation was quick and to the point, Kirby Portley said, "We can fix it." An on line agreement between Portley Law and myself was accomplished within less than 24 hours, my new Red Letter Lease, ALL in MY favor, was sent electronically within 72 hours, I had it notarized here in the Philippines and sent an electronic copy and air mailed a hard copy to the producer. The producer was well satisfied and I stood to gain another 1/16 royalty with NO production or transportation costs at all. I will use this firm again for yet another 80 acre lease that will be come due soon.

I have worked for several years with Samuel Akeju and he is by far the most knowledgable and assessable attorney I have ever worked with. Samuel takes tremendous pride in developing a thorough understanding on the commercial situation while adding the pertinent legal expertise to ensure his clients are well taken care of. Additionally, Samuel strives to provide great customer service, often exceeding all expectations. I would highly recommend working with Samuel for your legal representation.

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.
