Do I Need an Estate Lawyer? Estate planning affects people of all generations and backgrounds. If you want a peaceful splitting of your estate after death, with as few taxes to pay as possible, talk to an estate lawyer. You may also need to consult an estate lawyer if you were wrongfully neglected in an inheritance. Preparing to Meet an Estate Lawyer Make a list of everyone you wish to leave something behind to, even charitable organizations and friends. If your children are young, find suitable and willing caregivers for them. Find out what things are especially meaningful to certain people in your life, in order to avoid disagreements later on. Be prepared to discuss your retirement plans, since estate lawyers have many strategies to minimize the amount of tax you and your family have to pay. Be willing to share your personal opinions and wishes for funeral arrangements with your lawyer.
How Much Will it Cost? We charge a set fee of $250.00 plus disbursements for drawing up a will and not by the hour for consultation.
