Are You Thinking About Creating a Trust?

Are you thinking about creating a trust? If so, a Providence trust attorney can help you set up the trust and appoint a trustee. Creating a trust can be complicated but it does not have to be. With a skilled trust attorney, you can be assured that your trust is accurately set up.

An Overview of Trusts

Creating a trust establishes a legal entity that holds property or assets. A trustee is appointed and that person manages the trust for a beneficiary. There are many different types of trusts and many different reasons why to set up a trust. An attorney can discuss your options with you and set up a trust for you.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
