Probate: Why do lawyers charge charge a % instead of the hours worked?
I've never understood why a lawyer would charge a percentage of the estate. Surely if everything else is the same an estate of 1
million vs 10 million wouldn't take 1/10 the time? Why isn't it just charged per hour?
How would you shop around for an estate lawyer? Are there reliable rating websites you would trust?
And what can I do as a client to minimize the cost of probate?
