Estate planner

Field: Estate planning

Most Estate planning lawyers tend to make most of their money through actual probate, not through the actual drafting of wills and trusts. However many Estate planning attorneys offer this service in order to help secure that when their clients execute their willl/trust which often triggers a probate (the process of carrying out the wishes included in the document) that the client will use them since they drafted the documents. When I worked for an Estate planning attorney she charged per hour, $200 per hour and most wills took about 3-4 hours ($600-800 each) or trusts which could run $800- 1200 each.

Hope that gives you some idea of what you can expect.

Criminal Lawyers / Attorneys Answer Needed Here?
How Long Can The Court Delay A Trial Date? What Is Considered A Speedy Trial? Someone I Know Has Been In Jail Custody Now For 33 Days Now, Just Went To Omnibus Hearing And Now They &Quot;Continued&Quot; The Omnibus Hearing To The Beginning Of September And The Jury Trial, Which Was Supposed To Be At The Beginning Of June, But Now To The Middle Of October. I Don'T Know Why They Delayed It, I Guess They Just Want More Time To Mess Around. What Is Frustrating Is That They Delayed The Trial Date When There Is So Much Evidence That The Person I Know Was Hostage And Had To Do What They Were Told Or Else. So It'S Gets Me That Someone Who Is Telling The Truth And Nothing But The Truth, They Still Have To Be In Jail For So Long, And They Have More Than Enough Evidence To Prove That The Person I Know Was Held Hostage And Was Beat. So I Am Asking Any Attorney On Here If They Know Anything That Can Be Said To Either Have The Trial Set Earlier Or To At Least Have The Person I Know At Least Just Get House Arrest Or Parole/ Probation Until The Trial Date. Or Something To Help. This Case Is Easy To Prove With All The Evidence There Is. The Law Is Just Taking Their Sweet Time Because They Are Not The Ones Behind Bars When Their The Victim. I Could Settle The Case Myself Right Now There Is So Much Proof. It'S Messed Up What They Are Doing To The Person I Know, They Got A Kid That Needs Them. And It'S Not Their Fault They Were A Victim So Why Do They Have To Be In Jail For So Long. So Is There Any &Quot;Legal&Quot; Action We Can Take To Actually Have This Be A &Quot;Speedy&Quot; Trial?

A few month's delay IS a speedy trial. I assume he has a lawyer, and that lawyer knows what needs to be done. If the evidence was as clear cut as you suppose, your friend would be out on bail right now, not sitting in jail. It's those with very serious charges and/or those who constitute a flight risk who are held until trial.

I'm guessing your friend isn't a totally upstanding citizen.

Once his case comes to trial, he'll get his day in court

Interview several and consider many factors, such as your retainer/commitment agreement required by that attorney, typically they will keep 30% plus cost from any award you recieve... how busy it the attorney/firm...

If I Want To Become A Corporate Lawyer...?
Would An Undergrad Degree In Legal Studies Suffice? If Not, What Courses Do I Need To Take? I Am Looking For Online Undergrad Alternatives, And Have Been Home Schooled For A Very Long Time So I'M Unsure What Kind Of Classes I Would Need To Take.

You would, but if you are looking into corporate law, that wouldn't be a good route to go. "Corporate" law is business law. Most of the corporate attorneys I know have their undergraduate work in business or economics. A few of them got their MBA before going to law school. Make sure you understand what "corporate law" is. I can tell you that "corporate law" is NOT just working for a big company. It often entails mergers and acquisitions, and deals with a lot of accounting and business aspects. If you want to become a corporate attorney, a legal studies degree is NOT what you need.

What Is A Legal Will In Canada?
I Can'T Afford A Lawyer'S Fee'S So What Can Be Used As A Legal Will In Canada?

Depends somewhat on the Province. There are a lot of requirements regarding contents and execution.

The law surrounding wills is extremely technical, and there's frequently no recourse for technical deficiencies. If you get something wrong, then the whole will might be toast. Or worse, it might be arguable, in which case your estate could get tied up in litigation for years, and the only ones who win in such a circumstance are the lawyers.

And there are two ways in which home-made wills and/or codicils can...and *do*,...go wrong. First, a home-made will, whether with a 'will kit' or not, is far more likely to have substantive errors, including grammatical and punctuation errors which change the meaning of a clause. I've seen even simple distributions botched very badly - in case a testator inadvertently wrote two of his kids out.

The second way is by technical deficiency. I once saw a will which was done using an online will kit. The testator even ran it by a law student friend when doing it, and was told that the will had everything he needed...
...he then signed one witness field, put the date in the second witness field, and had a single witness sign in the field where the testator would normally sign. Only one witness. This is a technical deficiency which renders the will completely invalid. And so while the will sets out a very different distribution of assets than would result from intestacy (in fact, the set of beneficiaries is completely different), the estate has to be distributed under intestacy, and his intended beneficiaries are out of luck.

Another common one is using beneficiaries as witnesses - after all, if they're close enough for you to trust them to witness your will, you've likely left them something in the will. But such a gift is presumptively void.

There are more major red flags than I could list off, and so I could never suggest that it's a good idea to do a will at home.

Even if you don't do something that completely destroys the will, a good properly-drafted will is going to have clauses which makes the administration of your estate easier - legitimacy clauses, powers of trustee clauses, minority clauses - all sorts of things that you wouldn't think of just putting together your own will at home, and which a will kit may or may not have.

And there's significant value added in having given instructions to a lawyer, because a will made in a law office is better positioned to withstand a challenge based on incapacity or undue influence, because of the process that good lawyers will use and the fact that they will document the instructions, etc.

The bottom line is this: Estate litigators *love* home-made will kits. That's where they make their money.

For what a decent solicitor will charge you to put together your will, it's worth the peace of mind of knowing that it's done right.
