What You Need to Ask Yourself & Your Attorney Before Drafting Your Estate Plan

What You Need to Ask Yourself & Your Attorney Before Drafting Your Estate Plan

There are few things more important in life than preparing for what happens after you pass on. This is why you must draft an estate plan. That being said, just as it is critical that you draft an estate plan, the attorney you select is also critical. You have a lot on the line, which is why, before proceeding, you should ask yourself and your estate planning attorney various questions to ensure that you are ready to move forward with that attorney. Some of those questions are as follows:

Is your attorney specifically an estate planning attorney?

This is one of the most important things for you to consider. You do not want to pick an attorney who dabbles in estate law to draft your estate plan, as he or she most likely will not understand the various nuances and complexities of the estate planning process. While these attorneys will surely take your case, they may not do as good of a job as an attorney who focuses his or her practice solely on estate planning. Attorney Katz has been primarily practicing estate law for many years, and it shows.

Does your attorney make you feel comfortable?

When hiring an estate planning attorney, your biggest concern is, of course, whether that attorney has a firm grasp of the law. That being said, trust is the foundation of all attorney-client relationships, which is why your attorney should make you feel comfortable, giving you peace of mind that he or she is here to answer your questions, update you at all points, and seamlessly guide you through every step of the process. Our firm is dedicated to keeping our clients informed and providing them with a comfortable environment as we help them make critical decisions regarding their estate plan.

How is your attorney rated on Google?

In today’s day and age, online ratings are the best indicator of whether a business or a law firm is worth speaking with. Rather obviously, attorneys with consistent 5-star reviews have those reviews for a reason. Our firm maintains a near 5-star overall rating on Google, and this is a testament to all of the effort and dedication we have towards our clients.
