Georiga probate attorneys rarely charge flat fees

Inexperienced lawyers don’t know how much work probate takes. 

And they can’t give you an estimation of the cost of probate

So, they resort to hourly rates for probate. 

And they tell you “We will start with a $3,000 – $5,000 retainer and go from there.”

Or “We think it will cost $5,000 to $10,000.”

Does that sound confident in their ability to handle your probate?

Interviewing Other Probate Lawyers

You should interview multiple probate lawyers in Atlanta.

Make sure you ask them:

  • why they don’t do flat fees 
  • why they can’t estimate how much effort it takes
  • if they charge you per email, paper copies, calls, etc. 

When they charge hourly, they are incentivized to: 

  • be less efficient
  • be slower
  • charge you more

Their interests are not aligned with yours.
