What to look for in an estate attorney

This is where it gets real, and sometimes you just need to lawyer up.

Hiring a professional to lead you through a complicated legal process can be priceless. If you are on the fence about hiring a lawyer or doing it yourself, read the 5 reasons you might need an attorney.

An attorney will tailor estate plans to your needs in a much more detailed and thorough way than any DIY online service, and you should expect to pay more for that attention to detail, anywhere from $500 to $2000. Three documents will be included in your estate plan: last will and testament, advanced care directive and power of attorney.

Of course, you'll want an estate attorney with solid experience. We have rounded up a list of highly qualified estate attorneys across the US. You can be sure we have vetted all of them, by reviewing our selection criteria and Avvo rating system.
