How To Choose The Right Estate Planning Attorney For Me?

When it comes time to start an estate plan, many people choose to do it themselves in order to save on legal fees. While this is understandable, it is not advisable. Without the assistance of an estate planning attorney, you may make mistakes that could jeopardize the effectiveness of your estate plan. Family Law Group can help provide tips on how to decide on the best estate planning attorney for you and your family.

Factors to Consider When Choosing

Some factors to consider when choosing an estate planning attorney include:

  • The attorney’s experience. You want to choose an attorney who has significant experience in estate planning. This way, you can be confident that they are familiar with the law and will be able to advise you accordingly.
  • The attorney’s specialization. There are different areas of estate planning, such as tax law, trusts, and wills. You want to make sure that the attorney you choose specializes in the area that is most relevant to your needs.
  • The attorney’s reputation. It is important to select an estate planning attorney who has a good reputation. You can ask family and friends for recommendations or do some research online.
  • The attorney’s fees. Estate planning attorneys typically charge by the hour or a flat fee. You should ask for an estimate of the total cost before you decide to hire an attorney.

Scheduling an initial consultation can help determine which attorney best fits you and your family.
