Drake Law, PLLC
Wills, Estates, & Trusts
"Estate" means all property you own whether a large or small amount. "Estate planning" is as simple as writing down what you want to happen to protect your family from uncertainty or delays in court.
All adults need at least a will, durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney, and a directive to physicians. Parents also need to name a guardian and trustee for their children until the children are over 18.
Estate planning is more than a form out of a book or bought online. Our years of study and experience help us identify ways to accomplish your goals that you won't find on the Internet or any do-it-yourself estate planning kit. You hire a lawyer for advice, not a document.
Most simple estate planning is done for a flat fee while trust planning is billed under our hourly fee provisions.
Cost of services varies.
Hourly Fee Provisions. When providing legal services on an “hourly fee” basis, we may provide an estimated fee (either orally or in writing), based on the information you provide and the specific documents or services you request. However, our actual fee is a reasonable fee based primarily upon the hours we spend: drafting instruments, researching legal issues, consulting with you or with others on your behalf—in person or over the phone, etc. We charge our time in minimum units of 1/10 hour—6 minutes.
