Questions To Ask Before Hiring A San Francisco Estate Planning Attorney

Estate Planning Lawyers in San Francisco

You should consider several different questions before you sign an agreement with any attorney, but this is even more important when it comes to hiring a wills, trusts or estate attorney. This attorney will address sensitive family and financial issues that range from helping you pass assets on to your children and close family members, to protecting you from unnecessary taxes, to helping you determine the best person to make medical decisions on your behalf. This is why you need to know the answers to the seven questions discussed in this special report.


  • 1: Does the attorney offer a free consultation and will he explain what will happen at this initial meeting?
  • 2 Does the attorney offer a flat fee for the services that he will perform and will this be put in writing?
  • 3 Does the attorney guarantee his service? Will he refund your money if you are not completely satisfied?


Do not be afraid to ask these questions before you hire a San Francisco estate planning attorney to work with your family on legal planning matters. When you find an attorney that says yes to these questions, hire him or her quickly before the practice fills up and he or she stops taking on new clients. Asking these questions and hearing the right answers before you engage a lawyer to work on your wills, trusts, and estate will ensure you put in place legal planning for your family that will work when you need it.
