Tips to find the best estate planning lawyer in our preferred network for your needs
Following the tips below will help you find the best lawyer to fit your needs.
1. Ask For Recommendations
Getting a couple of recommendations and calling those clients will help you feel more secure about hiring a new estate planning lawyer. Ask the referral about how well the attorney communicated, if they felt their pricing was fair, and about their overall experience.
2. Look At Google Reviews
Look at the law firm’s Google Reviews. These are often an indicator of how well connected the attorney is with their clients. Look to see if the firm responded to good reviews. That is a good indication they pay attention to detail and care about their clients.
3. State Bar Research
You can look up the lawyer in the state bar directory and see if they have any disciplinary actions against them. If they have a clean slate, this is a good indicator they will be honest and trustworthy.
4. Ask A Complicated Question
Asking the attorney you want to hire a complicated estate planning question will both test their skills as well as their ability to communicate. Watch for signs that they are making up answers if they don’t know, if they have a condescending tone, or if they simply brush off your question and try to change the subject. The best attorneys will help you feel at ease with the question and will help you understand on your level, not theirs.
5. Trust Your Instincts
You will not connect with each lawyer you talk to. Trust your instincts when you are doing your research and asking questions. First impressions are usually a good indicator if this is a good fit for you or not.
