An estate planning attorney should be someone you trust who can guide you through decisions on your estate that could potentially impact your family. When you do hire an estate planning attorney, here are some questions to ask:

Get a recommendation from a friend or relative who has an estate planning attorney. Ask your financial advisor or accountant for assistance in finding an estate planning attorney. Both the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and the Missouri Bar have resources for helping people find an attorney.
