Thank you for entrusting me with your legal issue. I will work diligently and quickly to answer your questions. I look forward to assisting you.


Many will charge between 2-5% of the value of the estate that they are managing.

I found the same answer via Google, but I'm looking for more of a monthly or annual fee for services rendered prior to the demise of the individual. There is a different person who is the executor of the estate. My question is focused on the usual and customary fees while the individual is still living. Thanks! -mep

Many of my clients will charge $30/hour for the work they do on behalf of someone they have POA over. However, it is important to keep a log of your time so that you can substantiate your fees
