How to Choose an Estate planning Attorney Deciding that you need to consider planning your estate is probably a sign that you are no longer that wild and crazy person you always thought you were but are now officially grown. It is a frightening thought for the baby-boomer generation. The next step in that process is to choose an estate-planning attorney. Think about Your situation Take the time to think about your situation. What is important to you? Do you have children, is your financial situation complicated, how much money do you have to spend on legal fees? How long have you been married? Have you worked during your marriage? Did you bring property into the marriage? Did you receive any inheritances during the marriage? These are just a few of the things that any estate-planning attorney will ask you in an initial interview. Are there any persons with special needs for whom you need to provide? Thinking about these issues prior to seeking an attorney will make the process of selecting an attorney much easier. Ask for Recommendations It never hurts to ask friends or co-workers if they could recommend an attorney. Be specific when you ask, you need a good estate planning attorney not just a good attorney. Technically, there are no specialties in law, but usually most attorneys limit their practice to certain subject areas. Ask questions about that person’s experience with the attorney such as are they receptive to phone calls and how quickly did they respond to emergencies.
