Does My Estate Planning Attorney Really Need to Be Someone Specializing in Trusts and Estates?

Even if you already have a relationship with another attorney who has helped you with some aspect of your legal issues in the past such as a divorce, there are many benefits to identifying somebody who has experience in the trusts, wills and estate planning sphere. This is because there are unique considerations that these lawyers will factor into your planning preparation.


An estate planning attorney should have experience working with clients just like you as well as understanding the complex network of federal and state regulations that influence estate planning.


Partnering with an attorney who does not have experience in this field could lead to minor mistakes that end up costing you or your beneficiaries down the road. A knowledgeable estate planning attorney will have experience working with other clients as well as legal education aligned with his or her individual practice area.


Furthermore, they will remain knowledgeable about changes within the landscape and new planning opportunities that can most significantly benefit you. Although this is not to say that working with an attorney who does not specialize in trusts and estates will always be a mistake, it is far better to consider working with someone who has extensive experience in this area and who is knowledgeable about the current laws and regulations.
