Estate Attorney Fees and Costs

When you work with an estate administration attorney, you can expect to pay fees and costs for the attorney's services. It is important to understand how the attorney will charge for services and what costs you can expect to incur so that you can budget accordingly.

There are several different ways that estate administration attorneys may charge for their services, including:

Hourly rate: Some attorneys charge by the hour, with rates ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per hour. Hourly rates can vary based on the attorney's level of experience, expertise, and location.

Flat fee: Some attorneys charge a flat fee for specific services, such as preparing a will or creating an estate plan. Flat fees can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the complexity of the work involved.

Contingency fee: Some attorneys charge a percentage of the estate as a fee for their services. This is known as a contingency fee and is typically only used in cases where the attorney is representing the estate in a legal proceeding, such as a will contest or probate litigation.

In addition to attorney fees, you can expect to incur costs such as filing fees, court costs, and other expenses related to the estate administration process. It is important to discuss fees and costs with the attorney upfront and to get a clear understanding of what you can expect to pay.
