How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Living Will Lawyer in the U.S.?

A very simple living will might cost you anywhere from $200 to $600. However, if you have substantial assets, a complex estate, or if you require more than simply a living will, you may find yourself paying several thousand dollars.

What to Look For in a Living Will Lawyer

Choosing a lawyer to represent you is undoubtedly a crucial decision. Without a doubt, the choice shouldn’t be based on advertising. You should ask specific questions to find the ideal estate planning lawyer for you and your family.

The Lawyer Should Be Highly Recommended
Obtain a recommendation from a trusted lawyer, financial planner, or CPA. They are likely to be familiar with a competent living wills lawyer who focuses on this area of the law.

The Attorney Should Be an Expert in Estate Planning
To learn more about each attorney’s credentials and expertise before you step through the door, inquire as to whether they have written a book, published articles, or have a website with pertinent information on it.

The Lawyer Should Be Insured Against Malpractice
Has the living will attorney purchased legal malpractice insurance? This demonstrates responsibility. Anyone can make a mistake, so you shouldn’t hire a lawyer who is not covered by malpractice insurance.

The Lawyer Should Have Attended a Good Law School
Law schools that are more difficult to get into have stricter requirements and only take the top students, just like any other institution. Inquire about the lawyer’s legal education.

The Lawyer Should Have Affiliations with Professional Groups
The lawyer you are speaking with should be devoted to remaining current on the most recent and best estate planning advancements if they are members of professional groups. Several organizations offer comprehensive education and peer networking opportunities.

You should ensure that your living will lawyer is up to date on the most recent legal developments and protective planning strategies, just as you would want to ensure that your doctor stays current on the most recent medical advancements if they were going to operate on you.

How to Prepare for Your Consultation With a Living Will Lawyer

Everyone aspires to have a sense of readiness, especially while making significant life decisions. The procedure may go faster for you and your family if you make preparations, and it will help the living will attorney create the best strategy for you.

The following are the most crucial actions to take before speaking with a living will attorney:

  1. Put together your financial documents.
  2. Bring copies of your existing estate planning documents and copies of any relevant divorce, prenuptial, and other contracts.
  3. Choose your executors and agents for healthcare.
