What Is An Estate Planning Attorney?
By: Julie Garber - March 19, 2018
- A general practitioner may not have the experience and specialized knowledge to assist you with your unique family and financial situations. Look for someone who devotes his practice to this area of the law.
- You should feel very comfortable sharing intimate details of your life and your concerns with him so your estate plan doesn't fall short of your expectations and needs.
- Your estate planning attorney should be well versed in and up to date with the laws of your state. Otherwise, your estate plan may ultimately be deemed invalid by the court.
As the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for."
