Often clients ask us about the cost and process for preparing a basic estate plan which generally includes, a will, power of attorney and health care directive.
At Bloomgren Hanson Legal, we offer flat fee package rates for basic estate planning services based on the complexity of your estate plan. Starting rates for basic packages typically range from $800 to $1500. Estate plan package rates include fees for time and effort expended from initial client contact through completion of the plan, including office work, traveling, phone calls, or otherwise. These rates include up to three hours of office conferences (including the signing of the documents), drafting of the instruments, and up to an additional hour of telephone or email consultation for questions during the process.
Your estate plan might require more time for office consultations or telephone/email discussions to assist with other tasks, such as re-titling your assets, accounts, or real property ownership. If so, please understand that these services are billed at the standard hourly rate of $195. If through our discussions we determine a highly complex estate plan is desired, charges for these services will also be based on our standard hourly rate for estate planning matters of $195 per hour. At your initial meeting with us we will be able to provide you a better estimate of the fees for your plan.
