Higher Prices May Mean More Experience
According to the Florida Bar, reasonable legal fees are determined based upon the attorney's experience, the time requirement to complete the will and the average cost of wills in the locality of attorney's office. An attorney charging high prices for a simple will may have more experience and better understand the requirements for a valid simple will.
Lower Prices May Mean Less Experience or Expertise
An inexperienced attorney may not be able to determine whether a simple will is appropriate for your needs. An attorney charging less for a simple will may have less experience and may take longer to complete the will with possible errors. If an inexperienced attorney does not take the time to acquaint himself with the legal requirements of a will, errors may cause significant costs to be incurred in the administration of the estate.
Prices for simple wills fluctuate based upon many factors including the experience of the attorney. Contact various attorneys to compare fees and experience and determine who can adequately assist you.
