find an attorney

It can be challenging to select the attorney that is right for you. Here are a few tips:

1. Licensing and Specialties. Search for attorneys in good standing who have an active license in your state with estate planning specialties that best match your needs. In addition to wills, advanced health directives, and powers of attorney, this may include probate administration, trusts, guardianship for minor children, tax avoidance, and asset preservation.

Take a look on this page at the list of estate planning attorneys who are part of the WGTS 91.9 listening family.

2. Referrals and Directories. Get recommendations from your accountant, financial advisor, or other attorneys. You can also use online directories that can be searched by practice type (estate planning) such as Avvo, Bethesda Magazine Top Attorneys, Christian Legal Society, Martindale, and Washingtonian Magazine's Best Lawyers. Some directories charge the attorneys shown a listing fee.

3. Research. Research the websites for the attorneys on your final list to ensure you are making a good choice, including the attorney's fee structure, which can be either hourly or fixed. Check online for peer and client reviews.

4. Personal Interview. Most attorneys offer the opportunity for a free or low-cost initial conversation to give their prospective clients a full understanding of the services that are provided.

5. Not able to afford an attorney? Check with Maryland Legal Aid, Virginia Legal Aid, and DC Refers to determine if you qualify for financial assistance in the preparation of estate planning documents.
