An estate planning attorney is an expert who has specialized in helping clients manage their assets when they are alive and after their death. While any attorney can solve a simple situation like naming the beneficiaries of a property, only experienced estate planning attorneys can handle complex situations. Below are tips on essential qualities to look for when searching for an estate planning attorney.
Consider the area of specialization
To become an estate planning attorney, you need to attend law school and earn your degree and have at least three years’ experience in estate planning or trust. Before you make your final decision on which estate planning attorney to choose, ask the attorney to present documents that show that he/she is indeed an experienced and certified estate planning attorney. Don’t forget to crosscheck the documents to verify their authenticity.
You will share many personal details of your life and that of your family with the estate planning attorney. You need to choose someone who can keep all of your personal information confidential.
Thorough understanding of your state laws
A good estate planning attorney should be well versed with your state laws. If the attorney is not up to date with the state laws, then your plan will be deemed null and void by the court.
