At JL Humphreys & Associates we are committed to providing balanced and affordable legal advice and assistance. Our goal is to be upfront about how we calculate our fees.
Our estate planning packages range from $800 for “simple” couple’s wills to $2,750 for complex wills incorporating testamentary trusts. After assessing your estate planning goals we will provide you with a fixed fee estimate to advise in relation to your estate planning and to produce a suite of documents for your circumstances.
Other legal work will be charged on a fixed fee basis or at our hourly rates, depending on the work involved. We will provide a fee estimate before commencing work on your behalf.
