As you look to hire an estate planning attorney, there are several factors you should consider in your choice:

  • Expertise: You want to ensure you choose an attorney who will be able to provide you with accurate, updated information. It is a good idea to choose a firm that has been working in the estate planning area for several years and an attorney who understands the ins and outs of estate law.
  • Reliability: It is also important to choose an attorney who will be accessible. There is nothing more frustrating than working with a person who does not return your calls! Choose an estate planning attorney who values his or her clients, spends time to speak with you, and returns calls promptly.
  • Insight: You also want to choose an attorney who will be able to ask you questions about your estate that you may not have considered. A good attorney will be able to help you identify all the options for your estate and plan accordingly.
