Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for using Just Answer. I am a licensed attorney and look forward to helping you. I am reviewing your question and will reply back shortly.
Good afternoon,There are many local and voluntary bar associations throughout Georgia that offer lawyer referral services that can help you find a qualified estate planning attorney in your area. You may want to look through this list here and call the association closest to/within your area.You may also want to try a service like Avvo --I particularly like this site because you can see reviews from past clients and fellow lawyers on there, and you can't pay to get a good review.You can also use a site like Martindale-Hubbell. Look for attorneys/firms that are at least "BV" rated (AV rating would be the best) which indicates a high level of skill and ethics/professionalism.Most estate planning attorneys are going to offer you a free or low cost consultation. Obviously, every person's situation and needs are different so what you ultimately will pay is going to vary. A simple Will package with a power of attorney, health care surrogate, etc. may only cost a couple hundred dollars, whereas a trust package can cost thousands.
