What will be the cost of the legal services required to administer the estate?

Costs for the legal services required to administer estates vary widely depending on the estate’s own facts and circumstances. Under New York law, certain factors should be considered in determining a reasonable legal fee, some of which are the nature and/or complexity of the work involved, the estate size, the attorney’s reputation, the time dedicated to the work, and the results obtained. We will set forth a fee that we believe is appropriate in a formal letter of engagement which we will ask you to sign before commencing work on the estate. The legal fees paid are in addition to any fees paid to the Court, experts, or other third party vendors.
