What Questions Should I Ask Before Hiring an Estate Planning Attorney?

As you know, there are few things more important in life than creating a comprehensive estate plan. Doing so will not only benefit you, but your family as well. For this very reason, you must be very careful when selecting your estate planning attorney. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Alabama estate planning attorneys to learn more about some of the questions you should ask yourself before going ahead and hiring an estate planning attorney.

Can the attorney answer basic estate planning questions off the top of his/her head?

Rather obviously, the most important quality of any attorney is that he or she is knowledgeable in his or her field of practice. This is why your attorney should be able to answer all of your basic questions concerning wills, trusts, and other estate planning matters off the top of his or her head.

How does the attorney make you feel?

Of course, while knowledge of the law is paramount, the truth is, your attorney should also make you feel comfortable. Your attorney should answer each of your questions, keep you updated on every aspect of your case, and do everything in his or her power to ensure that you leave your meeting feeling better than when you first entered.

How is the attorney/firm rated on Google?

As you know, in today’s day and age, online reviews play a huge role in the success of a business, and law firms are no different. Just as you wouldn’t eat at an expensive restaurant without first checking its reviews, you shouldn’t hire an attorney without first checking their reviews as well. Fortunately, our law firm maintains a near-five-star rating on Google, which is a testament to our attorneys’ dedication to our clients’ success.

The bottom line is that if you are someone who is looking to create an estate plan that will work to you and your family’s benefit for years to come, you need a competent, compassionate attorney who is well-versed in the law and has the ratings to prove it.
