What Is the Difference Between a Probate Attorney and an Estate Planning Attorney?

The difference between an estate lawyer and a probate lawyer is when assignors generally hire estate planning lawyers before their death to support them make a plan for dividing their estate and assets. In contrast, a probate lawyer can assist the estate official and family in overseeing the confirmation and management in probate court after the assignor has died.

Avoiding Estate Planning Mistakes

While you could create your own will and accompanying documents, doing so can be risky. If the estate plan is not in compliance with Idaho state law, it could be found to be invalid and the estate could go into probate. Our estate planning attorney in Boise reviews existing wills for clients to make sure they are valid and to correct any mistakes.

Developing a Customized Estate Plan

We begin by discussing your specific intentions to ensure that your estate plan accomplishes your goals. The issues that may arise and details of the planning process vary depending on the size of the estate, whether there is a business involved, and other issues. We work with each client to develop an estate plan that is tailored to their needs and unique situation.

Because the estate planning process can be complex, you should have an experienced attorney to answer your questions and guide you through the process.
