A probate lawyer can be indispensable to family before and after you go through the loss of a loved one. Nobody likes to think of their death, but a probate lawyer can help you settle the matter by preparing a will. When a loved one dies, a probate lawyer can be there to navigate the legal side of property division, acting as an authority to keep the process as quick and simple as possible.
In our last blog, we gave you some guidance on how to select a probate lawyer you can trust. In this blog, we will finish up with a few more tips.
- Get references
- Ask the law firm or the lawyer for references. If references cannot be provided, move on. You need to be able to assess the lawyer’s skills and dependability. If you cannot actually talk to the lawyer’s clients, ask to read reviews.
- Check with the state bar association
- You can go to the state bar association’s website and search the lawyer’s name. It will show you if the lawyer is in good standing.
- Clear up payment
- It is incredibly important to know what you are getting into financially. Get a copy of the retainer agreement and have someone at the office explain it to you. Do not move forward until you understand everything.
