I want to provide you with legal services that are affordable and convenient. Our initial consultation, which is generally about 30 minutes long, is free. During that discussion, I give you an overview of different estate planning options. I briefly discuss which options might work best for your situation, and I quote you a price for my services.
I charge a flat fee for my estate planning documents and plans. My will plans start at $500, and my trust plans start at $1500. A plan, which covers you in the event of incapacitation and death, includes a will or trust, durable power of attorney, health care proxy, advance directive, and HIPAA release. If you have a more complex situation, such as one involving tax or Medicaid planning, my legal fee may be higher than these base rates. Any recording charges, filing fees, or title research related to your work are additional, and I will provide you with those amounts prior to doing any work.
While this is my business, and I need to make money to provide for my family, I also want to work with you to make sure you have estate planning in place in case of an emergency or death. When I can, I work with you to make the plan affordable by working out a payment plan or a sliding fee scale. I also draft individual documents, such as a will or power of attorney, at a lower cost than the plans and will quote you their prices during our initial consultation.
Please contact me today to get started with your estate planning, and I will quote you the price before I do any drafting. Thanks!
