HOW WE PRICE FOR OUR ESTATE PLANNING SERVICES

The Edwards' Law Offices prides itself on keeping  its prices reasonable. We offer free consultation  and we generally charge a fixed (flat) fee for our estate planning services because we believe it is the best pricing model for our clients.  It allows them to budget and plan for payment of their attorney’s fees. However, the fixed (flat) fee ultimately depends on the complexity of their  estate and the documents requested and may differ than the amounts below. 


We also offer a  payment plan. 

  • The annual percentage rate is 0%.
  • A 25% down payment is due upon your signing an engagement letter with us.
  • The remaining balance is due in equal monthly installments over the term of the payment plan, which shall not exceed 12 months.
  • The first monthly installment is due the first full calendar month after your documents are signed.
  • Each monthly payment will be automatically charged to your credit card on or about the 15th of each calendar month.
  • There is no prepayment penalty.
  • There are no finance charges or other fees applied to the balance.
  • Documents to be released after final payment unless other arrangements are made in advance for their release.
