ESTATE PLANNING BASE FLAT PRICES

We generally charge a flat fee for estate planning services. We believe this is the best pricing model because it allows you, the consumer, to budget and plan accordingly for payment of your attorney’s fees. Hourly rates, on the other hand, can lead to unexpected bills that are far more than originally estimated. With a flat rate, the risk of going over the original estimate is on the attorney — not you.


The amount of the flat fee ultimately depends on the complexity of your estate. Although fees are determined on a case by case basis, below is a break down of the typical price range for estate planning:


* All documents and services are basic or standard documents and services. They do not include cost. You may request additional features or services at additional cost.
