From our “Ask a Question” mailbag: My children would just endlessly fight each other, so I want to name a lawyer as my executor. I see most lawyers charge a percentage of the estate to serve as executor, but your website says you charge by the hour. Which is better?

Over the years I have found that when serving as executor, charging a percentage of the estate is seldom a fair fee. I feel more comfortable charging my hourly rate for actual work done. Either way is legal and proper, I just feel that the better way to do business is to charge by the hour.

If would like more information about probate, feel free to contact our office for a free consultation with one of our probate lawyers.
