Finding an Attorney

Some things to look for in an estate planning attorney

1. Make sure they are licensed 
Consult with a duly-licensed, Tennessee estate-planning attorney knowledgeable of Tennessee inheritance tax and federal estate and gift tax laws.

2. Experience matters
Your attorney should also be experienced with the procedures of Tennessee’s probate courts. Ask for references and ask plenty of questions so you know you are consulting with an attorney whose practice focus is estate planning.

3. They should be proud of their bio

Review a prospective attorney’s bio posted on both her firm’s website and her LinkedIn page to assist you in determining whether her practice is dedicated to estate planning, probate and trust administration.
