It took a long time for me to decide on a Divorce.. So when I decided to find an attorney and someone that has been in the legal industry I knew I had to find a good attorney because I knew I was in for a fight for my life. I needed a hero. I interviewed with several attorneys none of which I will not name but did not like either because they do not do their own litigation on their own cases nor there was no reassurance from the attorney on how I was going to get out of an abusive marriage . I knew within five minutes I had found the guy. My protector. The hero I mentioned earlier when I meet with Nicholas Gottwald I knew I met an intelligent, reassuring rare attorney and hired him that week. He helped me with a difficult situation and treated me with respect and had my back every step of the process. As a paralegal I knew alot of attorneys don't do court. They don't find out till they passed the bar but not all attorneys can stand in court and protect you. Also not alot of attorneys have empathy for the situation your in. If they can't reassure you as to their method, or madness as I call it don't hire them. You can trust Nick to be current on state and federal laws . He is there everytime I called. A true human. I highly recommend this attorney.

Thanks Ryan, for providing me with a tools I needed to be successful, When I moved to Ogden I needed to bankruptcy, I feel lucky to have had Ryan prepare my case. I started out with a Chapter 13. Making my monthly payments to the Trustee. When enough time had passed, my Baxter notified me I was eligible to convert my Bankruptcy to a Chapter 7. Saving me money, time and preperation was excellent. My nephew needed to file Bankruptcy, so I referred him to Ryan Baxter. He is Honest, Fair, and easy to get hold of. Best Bankruptcy Attorney in town. Johnny M. Roy, Utah.

I was really grateful for this service is that were rendered in my behalf. Without this Law Firm I would have been in a really bad place because of my divorce. Jamie knows his craft and had some really good pointers for me when working with a mediator. I would recommend using this law firm and Jamie for a divorce attorney. I would also mention that I believe Lisa was a great paralegal I communicated with her often and she was able to mention the deadlines and important dates.. She mailed out important documents to me as needed. I was taken care of!

    This was a very informative and productive visit. Mr. Barnes provided a ‘menu pricing sheet’ and reviewed the details very thoroughly. This eliminated any surprises. The documentation was very thorough and detailed. And Mr. Barnes was very courteous and personable. All in all, this was a very productive, courteous, and cost-effective visit. I can recommend Mr. Barnes highly.

    Reid Mann helped me with my divorce. I was impressed with his level of knowledge and experience, but most of all with his ability to still have a kind "bed side manor". A lot of attorneys won't take the time to consider the emotional stress you are under when you are dealing with these types of situations. The've seen it all before so the amount of sensitivity has diminished. Reid raises the bar and takes the time to ensure you understand the law and all of your options. He always answered my calls and emails very quickly.

    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.
