If my case has begun with another attorney, can I switch to your law firm?

Yes, and you will not suffer. It is our policy that you should pay the same fee that you contracted for with the other attorney and we will reduce our fee by the amount owed the prior attorney. This has proven to be a very acceptable approach to clients. We would never insist on our full fee; you have every right to have your case handled without having to pay an additional legal fee.

Is there a charge for meeting the attorney and how often can I meet?

Because we work on a contingency fee basis, there is no charge for meetings and similar events. Attorneys at Feinberg & Alban PC as well as all support staff are readily available to speak to you or meet with you. Our philosophy is that you should feel fully informed. That policy begins with our very first meeting with you when you are given a copy of the Contingent Fee Agreement, as is required.

Estate Planning

 

My mother just passed away. What does it mean to probate the estate?

An estate is everything owned by a deceased individual. Probate is the court procedure by which:

  • The will is proved to be valid or invalid.
  • The property covered by the will is shown to be the decedents.
  • If there is no will, it is determined how the property is to be distributed, in accordance with the inheritance laws of the state where the decedent lived.
  • Unpaid creditors of the decedent are given the opportunity to file claims against the estate.
  • Fees for administration of the estate are approved and paid.
  • The probate assets of the estate are distributed.

What if there is no will?

If no will exists, then the laws of inheritance in the state where the decedent lived are in effect.
