My father and I engaged this attorney to prepare his will in PA. When my father passed, I as the executor took the will to be probated. I then find that the will was not self-proving (a will is self-proving when two witnesses sign under penalty of perjury that they observed the willmaker sign it and that he told them it was his will.) and therefore could not be probated as it was. We then had to either find the witnesses to the will (which had been signed 15 years ago) or have two people go to the court house to attest that that was my Father's signature. The self-proving part of a will is just mechanical. How scary is it that the attorney did not even provide that level of competency.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
