Don’t be afraid to ask these questions before you hire a lawyer to work with your family on personal and business legal planning. When you find a lawyer who says yes to these questions, hire him or her quickly before the practice fills up and he or she stops taking on any new clients. Asking these questions and hearing the right answers before you engage a lawyer to work on your wills, trusts, estate or business will ensure you put in place legal planning for your family and your business that will work when you need it.
