Meeting Your Probate Attorney For The First Time

The practice of estate planning and probate law is a specialized field that requires specialized knowledge and attorneys who have experience in probate filings and estate administration. The requirements for a probate filing and the court demands can try the patience of even the most experienced probate lawyers in Brandon, Lakeland and the surrounding area. The important thing, however, is how your attorney reacts to these demands.

What To Ask Your Probate Lawyer

Has your attorney ever probated or accounted for an estate the size that your deceased family member left? Some attorneys have only probated estates that were very large and reached into the tens of millions of dollars. These attorneys are often not aware of the different requirements of probating a smaller estate. In addition, they are likely unaware of less expensive options available under the probate process. Likewise, an attorney who has traditionally handled smaller estates may not be prepared for the complexity of a larger estate. The experienced probate attorneys at Pilka & Associates, P.A., have handled estates of all sizes.

Does your probate attorney genuinely care about you? While many attorneys may be able to push your case through the probate process and reach the ultimate goal of distributing the estate assets, the method your Brandon or Lakeland probate attorney follows may make the process smoother for you. An attorney who approaches an estate with a soft touch and who can compassionately walk you through the estate as you and your family mourn can provide a better experience than one who simply makes the filings and then moves onto the next case. Often the mark of a good Brandon and Lakeland wills attorney is the level of sensitivity brought to the subject.
