What Qualities Should I Look For in an Estate Planning Lawyer?
Few things are more important than building a well-rounded, comprehensive estate plan. That being said, the attorney you choose to guide you through the process can make a world of a difference. Please continue reading to learn more about some of the questions you should ask yourself before hiring an estate planning lawyer.
Before you choose your attorney, you should ask yourself several questions, including the following:
Can my attorney answer my questions? Does he/she seem knowledgeable? Having an in-depth knowledge of estate law is the most important quality of any estate planning attorney. If you ask your attorney basic questions and he or she can’t answer them or provides vague answers that don’t really make sense, it may be time to look elsewhere. Here at Herting Law PLLC, we stay abreast of the law at all times and are always prepared to answer our clients’ questions candidly, professionally, and immediately.
Do I feel a sense of trust when I’m around my attorney? Any good relationship is based on trust. If you don’t feel confident in your attorney’s ability, or if your attorney makes you feel uncomfortable in any way, you may want to consider a different lawyer. Estate planning is more than just another legal matter; you are protecting your legacy for yourself and your family, and you need an attorney who will take that as seriously as you do. We are compassionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated to serving our clients’ needs.
How is the attorney rated on Google? In today’s day and age, many of us won’t even step foot in a restaurant without first reading up on its reviews, and for good reason–we don’t want to waste our time and money. Why should this be any different when looking to hire an attorney? Herting Law PLLC is proud to say that our legal team maintains a near-5-star rating on Google, out of almost 60 reviews from satisfied clients, and, of course, these are only a fraction of the happy clients we’ve served over the years.
