Personal Representative

Our experience with Heidi Webb was fantastic. She explained all that was needed to build our estate planning. The customer service that was provided was well above excellent. We requested our estate plan be available to us in a short period of time. This was well met and gave us a great sense of gratitude. We can now go on with doing what we do and not have to worry about our estate, knowing that all our documents are now in order for our family.

Heidi handled the creation of our estate plan which includes a trust. In the consultation she explained all of our options and the cost involved with them. After a couple of more meetings with her we now have a completed estate plan we are very happy and comfortable with. Heidi and her team were easy to contact with questions along the way. We would highly recommend her for any estate planning needs.

Tips to Work with your Attorney

work with your attorney

Hiring an attorney can be a stressful time no matter the issue and it is critical to communicate clearly and work with your attorney and their staff. Once you have taken the time to research and hire an attorney it is critical to put your trust in them to handle your issue in your best interest. No matter what the reason is for having legal counsel, as a client, you must trust the individual you have hired so let them do their job. Here are some specific examples of how best to communicate and work with your attorney to reduce stress and not slow down the legal process.

Let the Attorneys do the talking

I know it might get frustrating when opposing counsel does not timely return phone calls or emails but as a client you must let the process flow – do not call the opposing attorney’s office. Most people think this is helping, but it is not. Clients must let the attorney do their job and handle the legal issues. Having too many cooks in the kitchen can cause unnecessary delays in your legal matter.

Keep your Attorney Informed of New Developments

Your attorney works for your and your best interested, if you make a decision regarding your legal matter they are handling for you, let them know. The attorney can not do the best job for you if they are not completely informed on your issue.

Ask Questions

If you are unclear of the legal process, ask your attorney for an explanation. That is what we are here for, to help you in your situation and be the source of legal counsel. Looking for an answer on Google may not be the correct one for your unique legal situation and misinformation can cause undo stress. If you take the time to hire an attorney that you trust, keep that trust and communicate with them on any questions you have regarding your legal situation.

The legal process can be an emotional one, not matter the issue but by following these basic tips will keep the relationship with your attorney a productive and professional one.
