Estate Attorney Hiring Considerations
Hiring an estate administration attorney is an important decision, and it is important to choose an attorney who is well-suited to your needs and goals. When considering hiring an estate administration attorney, you should consider the following factors:
Experience: Look for an attorney who has experience in estate planning and administration, and who is familiar with the laws and procedures that apply in your state.
Specialization: Some attorneys specialize in particular areas of law, such as tax planning or probate litigation. If you have specific needs or concerns, it may be helpful to look for an attorney who has relevant specialization.
Reputation: Check the attorney's reputation by reading reviews and asking for references. You should also check to see if the attorney has any disciplinary actions or complaints on record.
Fees: Consider the attorney's fees and make sure you understand how the attorney will charge for services. Some attorneys charge an hourly rate, while others charge a flat fee or a percentage of the estate.
Compatibility: It is important to feel comfortable working with your attorney and to trust that the attorney has your best interests at heart. Consider whether you feel comfortable communicating with the attorney and whether you feel that the attorney is a good fit for you.
