Lawyer Will Seattle

You would be hard pressed today to find someone who is not familiar with a will as a tool of estate planning.  You might be surprised, however, to learn how many people don’t understand how important it is to have a will, even if you don’t have children or millions of dollars. You would probably be even more surprised to learn how many people who know that they should have a will simply have not gotten around to getting one.

A will not only works to make sure that your property goes to the people you choose in the event that something should happen to you it also protects those people from unnecessary expense and difficulty. When someone passes away without a will in Seattle, the state begins a process called ‘probate’ in which the government will determine where their assets and children should go. Friends and family are forced to hire attorneys to help them through this process, and there are no guarantees that it will work out the way that you wanted. A good lawyer can write you a will that will avoid this entire scenario.

There are plenty of lawyers around Seattle who can write a will, and just as many things to consider when choosing the lawyer you want writing your will. Depending on who you are, and what you are doing with your life, you will need to take into account different considerations when selecting an attorney to write your will. For example, if you are a young working person without much money you should think about the following when choosing your attorney:

  1. 1. How much do they charge, and will they tell me the total cost up front?
  2. 2. Are they convenient? Will they work around my schedule?
  3. 3. Do they have the knowledge and experience to make sure my will gets done right?

Many lawyers around Seattle keep normal business hours. This may be fine for some clients, but what about everyone who also works during the day Monday through Friday? The lawyers at Findley & Rogers strive to make themselves available in the evenings and on weekends, and if you like, can even come to your home. If you prefer to discuss your will in a more professional setting Findley & Rogers welcome you to make an appointment at their office in North Seattle in Maple Leaf. Getting a will is important, but it doesn’t have to be inconvenient.
