What Are Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Choose an Estate Planning Attorney?

Are you or a loved one moving to a different state or moving farther away from the Seattle-Bellevue-Tacoma area and are looking for an estate planning attorney closer to your new location, but have no clue how to look for one?  Attorneys are licensed by each state, and attorneys are able to practice throughout the state that they are licensed.  So, if you live in Yakima, you can have an estate planning attorney whose offices are in SeaTac.  However, if you want to work with a local attorney, below are ten questions that you should ask a prospective estate planning attorney before making your final decision:

  1. How long have you been doing Estate Planning?

  2. What other areas of law do you practice?

  3. What tools of Estate Planning do you provide or prefer for your clients?

  4. Do you use national forms or your personally created forms?

  5. How many estate plans did you establish last year?

  6. Have you done Estate Planning for same sex couples?

  7. What services do you provide if a loved one dies?

  8. How do you bill?  What about billings for your staff's time?

  9. Who does the work in your office and how is their time billed?

  10. What happens if you become sick or are on vacation?

The answers to the above questions are useful information to help you make your final decision.  If you want to learn more about how Rehberg Law Group attorneys work with clients who live outside the Seattle-Bellevue-Tacoma area, please give Rehberg Law Group a call at 206.246.8772.
