3 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring an Estate Planning Attorney

There are few things more important in life than creating a well-rounded estate plan. Our experienced Pennsylvania estate planning attorneys have helped countless individuals through the estate planning process for years, and we are confident we can do the same for you. However, before going ahead with our firm, or any other firm, there are several questions you should ask yourself. Please continue reading to learn more about some of the most important questions you should ask before proceeding with an estate planning attorney.

Does the attorney solely practice estate & elder law?

When it comes to hiring an attorney to help you create your estate plan, you should strongly consider hiring one who solely practices estate planning & elder law. Of course, there are very many attorneys throughout the state of Pennsylvania, and many practice estate law, however, many of them do not primarily focus on estate law. In many cases, this is not ideal, as they will not be as familiar with the various nuances and intricacies associate with estate law as an attorney who solely practices estate law. Our firm exclusively practices estate and elder law, and we have the knowledge and skill needed to effectively create a comprehensive estate plan that suits you best.

Do you feel comfortable with your attorney?

Of course, when selecting an attorney to represent you, the most important thing is that the attorney has a firm grasp of the law. However, as you know, trust is the foundation of any healthy attorney-client relationship, which is why you should leave your initial meeting with your attorney feeling better than when you arrived. Our attorneys will take the time to get to know you, answer your questions, and work to create an estate plan that best reflects your needs and wishes.

How is the attorney or law firm rated on Google?

One of the most important things anyone can do before selecting an attorney is to check their ratings on Google. Just as you would check the ratings of a restaurant before dining there, you should always look to see what real clients have to say about your prospective attorney before going forward. Our firm maintains a near-5-star rating on Google, which is a testament to our hard work and dedication to our clients.
