Houston Probate lawyer, W. Timothy Weaver offers a probate flat fee because he recognizes the need for families to know, in advance, what the costs of the probate proceeding will be.
One of the biggest problems with an attorney charging by the hour for a routine probate proceeding is the uncertainty of knowing up front what the total cost of legal services will be. Furthermore, executors then may feel reluctant to call counsel to ask questions because they feel that it will drive up the fee when in fact the answers to those questions may be essential. A flat fee arrangement therefore gives clients more comfort in knowing the total costs of probate.
