For estate planning our initial meeting is without obligation. If after we meet you feel you do not want to proceed with planning you have no obligation to do so and do not owe us anything. At the initial meeting, in most cases, we will be able to quote you the flat fee your planning will cost. In addition, when you make an appointment we will send you our current fee schedule in your meeting planning package so you will know what range to expect.
For most probate, trust administration and guardianship matters we charge on an hourly basis. At our initial meeting we will be able to tell you what we will require as a cost retainer and what we believe the range of fees will be.
