Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Selecting a PA Estate Planning Attorney

There are few things more important in life than preparing for the future. For this very reason, everybody must have a comprehensive estate plan in place to ensure their family can reap the benefits of their estate for years to come. That being said, before you select your attorney, you must ask yourself various questions to determine if this attorney is the one you want handling your affairs. Here are just some of the questions you should ask yourself about our experienced Pennsylvania estate planning attorneys before proceeding:

Does your attorney focus his practice on estate law?

When selecting your estate planning attorney, one of the most important things to consider is whether your attorney is dedicated to estate law. Of course, he does not have to solely practice estate law, however, an attorney that is primarily a personal injury attorney and only dabbles in estate law will most likely not be your best bet. We have many attorneys at our firm that focus their practice on estate law.

Can your attorney answer all of your basic questions?

This is critical. Of course, there are various nuances when it comes to estate law, however, your attorney should be able to answer all of your basic questions off the top of his or her head. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of all facets of estate law, so you can feel peace of mind knowing that we will answer your most pressing questions promptly, confidently, and correctly.

Are you comfortable with your attorney?

Of course, having knowledge of the law is perhaps the most important quality in any attorney you are considering to represent your best interests. However, since the foundation of any attorney-client relationship is trust, you should feel comfortable with your attorney, knowing he or she will be there to answer any questions you may have, update you regarding your case whenever necessary, and more.

How is your attorney’s firm rated on Google?

Before you dine out at a restaurant, there is a very good chance that you will quickly Google the restaurant and see its overall rating to determine if it’s truly where you want to spend your evening. The premise is the same for attorneys. What better insight into the quality of a firm than how real clients have rated it on Google? Our firm maintains a 5-star rating on Google, which is truly a testament to our dedication and commitment to our clients. The bottom line is that we are always here to help.
