Nashville Wills Information

Do I Really Need a Lawyer for My Will?

A will is a legal document that allows a person to decide how property and assets will be distributed after death. If a will does not exist, the state's probate court disburses the person's belongings according to intestacy laws.

What a Will Attorney Does

Although you can write a will without the benefit of legal counsel, the best course is to consult a Nashville wills attorney. The attorney can draft your will to ensure it is legal, that your wishes are honored, and anticipate contingencies that could prevent the will from being challenged.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Wills Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
