Ronald Ortman was completely honest up front, due to the severity of my case. He didn't present false hope or expectations, however he went above and beyond and secured the best possible outcome for me. I was looking at a 3rd Degree Felony and it was reduced to a Misdemeanor C. I am so thankful for Mr. Ortman and the aggressive approach he took with my case. He was exactly the kind of attorney we were searching for and I'm so happy that we were able to find him and have him on our side. He handled the case quickly and his knowledge and communication with me was priceless. I would highly recommend this man for any criminal matters. He has the no nonsense attitude that will definitely get the job done.

Colin has excellent marketing skills. The photographer he sent and stager advice were instrumental in our property receiving 3 offers within two weeks of listing. His market assessment and knowledge of the real estate sales process were instrumental in our move proceeding smoothly.

I needed to hire an attorney to represent a case from family law. Robert Peterson with Shumway Van was hired to handle the case. The case is till in the legal system, but I wanted to take a moment and view my experience. I hired Robert Peterson after using Thumbtack for my first time. Mr. Peterson listened to the reasons I need legal representation, and help form a plan of action. Mr. Peterson is good about keeping me informed of the status of the case. I would recommend to anyone who needs to hire an Attorney to seriously consider Shumway Van for several reasons. Shumway Van is a large successful law firm that has resources an individual attorney would not be privileged. Robert Peterson works hard on presenting the best case, and if necessary has Partners in the firm with vast experience that can give advice or recommendation on the case. Money is a huge factor when you need an attorney. Although no attorney is "cheap" and if they are "Run". I find in my case the fee's for legal representation to be affordable. Word of advice, if you hire an attorney that is "Cheap" it could affect the case at hand and affect future cases. This is part of the reason I have to seek legal counsel to try and correct a problem that should of been dealt with the first time money was spent going in front of the court. Best of Luck with your decision and your case. I would recommend Robert Peterson with Shumway Van.

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.
