We strongly recommend using paralegals or legal document assistants to help if you get stuck. They only charge $95/hour and can meet with you if you’re local to their area. Although they don’t provide “legal advice,” they know how to help you find the answers to your questions. The people we recommend on this website have been specifically trained on these documents to work with you competently and efficiently. Most importantly, Attorney Heather Reynolds hand picked them because they care about people and genuinely want to help
My hourly rate is $85 per hour for Your Legacy Lives clients. For those who want me to do the majority of the drafting, my flat fees are as follows:
Single Person Will Package………$700 (+ $397 for YLL documents)
Married Couple Will Package…… $800 (+ $497 for YLL documents)
Single Person Trust Package*……$1,200 (+ $697 for YLL documents)
Married Person Trust Package*….$1,400 (+ $997 for YLL documents)
* If needed, a county recorder’s fee (approximately $25) for recording deeds will be an additional charge.
I have helped develop hundreds of estate plans and welcome the opportunity to support anyone who wants to put these important documents in place. Feel free to call me (510-227-5877) to talk about how you might use my help.
