6 Questions to Ask an Estate Planning Lawyer

With so many lawyers in Colorado, it can be difficult to know which one is right for your unique situation when it comes to estate planning. When deciding on an estate planning lawyer, you should get to know members of the legal team, discuss your individual estate planning needs and, most importantly, ask questions. If you are investing in legal help, you want to make sure your money is being well spent. Here are 6 questions to ask estate planning lawyers in Colorado during your initial meeting:

  1. Is estate planning your specialty?
  2. How many years have you practiced estate planning in Colorado?
  3. Will the work on my case be handled by you or others in your office?
  4. Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat fee for services?
  5. Can you provide a list of client references?
  6. What sets you apart from other estate planning lawyers in Colorado?

Don’t feel intimidated to ask pointed questions and to readdress those questions if you do not receive satisfactory answers. In addition to feeling confident about their professional skills, you should also feel a good personal rapport with the lawyer you choose to work with. There may come a time when you need to have in-depth legal representation from them, requiring long hours being spent together.

At The Brown Law Firm, LLC we offer a complimentary “meet and greet” call or meeting where potential clients can discuss their situation and allow them to get to know our close-knit legal family. We encourage potential clients to ask all of the questions above – and any others they can think of – to learn more about our specialties, our philosophies and our approach to estate planning.
