Below you will find some tips to help you find the right Will Lawyer to make sure that your loved ones are protected in the event of a tragedy that takes your life.
Do Your Research
The first thing you will want to do is research. You want a legal firm that is well respected, well known, and trusted in your area. Most importantly, you have to feel comfortable with the attorney you plan to hire. In many cases, it is best to go with a local firm. Local firm are familiar with the area and laws in your state and keep up to date on changes in estate planning laws. If you don’t have a will or one that is out dated, then your family or loved ones may end up having to spend thousands to tens of thousands trying to litigate the issues in probate court. Ultimately, the court will follow what the will says whether the will is updated or not.
Talk to More than One Firm
You do not want to go with the first firm you run across in the phone book. Take your time and discuss your options with a few different firms. If at any time during the initial consultation you don’t feel comfortable with the lawyer that you are considering to draw up your will, then it would make sense to move on to someone you feel comfortable with and trust. It is important for you to trust the lawyer that you have chosen or you will always have questions whether he or she did the right thing to help your family.
