Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. I am working on answering your question and will be right back.
You would be amazed how widely the cost of an attorney can vary. Of course, some lawyers in small firms are much less expensive than those in large firms, but that isn't necessarily even the case anymore because so many big firm lawyers go out on their own.
Prices in your area for a probate lawyer will start around $150 per hour and could go as high as above $500 per hour for a big firm, or for a high profile probate.
A good place to start looking is on marindale.com where you can narrow down a handful of lawyers and contact them all for a quote. The cost will depend on how time consuming and complicated this estate is going to be to probate. If it's really simple, you should be able to get someone under $250 per hour.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
