Valerie Shivers is a vendor on here and I am in the process of using her at the moment and she is great so I would definitely recommend her.

I have thought about that, but does that hold up just as well as one done with an actual lawyer?

Re: Need recommendation for a lawyer to do a Will for myself and DH

it was about $1000 for will, health care proxys, guardianships, etc. THe whole bang...you are right that wills from legal zoom may not hold up and are easy to be contested.

Re: Need recommendation for a lawyer to do a Will for myself and DH

We set up a will, living will, health care proxy, etc with Paul Killian. His office changed from Miller Place since we last saw him, but I believe he moved to two offices. One near center moriches and one closer to nassau.

His number is 631-642-2588.

We highly recommend him! He's been a family lawyer for 3 generations, dealt with the estates for 2 of DH's grandmother's and he's only in his 40s. He also was our lawyer during our house negotiation process.

Re: Need recommendation for a lawyer to do a Will for myself and DH

I am Valerie Shivers - both a vendor on this site and an active member. I am actually 26 weeks pregnant and post on the "pregnancy boards". I cannot stress the importance of setting up a Will the moment you have a child.

Fees for a simple Will, Health Care Proxy, Power of Attorney and Living Will vary depending on each individual's needs (generally anywhere from 300 - 1500). I do however offer free consultations and am more than happy to answer any LIFer's questions Chat Icon

FYI - beware of legal zoom and similar sites - while sometimes you may be able to achieve what you are looking to do with a "simple" form, it's always better to discuss your individual situation with a professional to make sure all of your needs have been met.

Best luck to everyone!

I work for a firm in Riverhead. We are not that inexpensive however, but do have a whole estates/wills department.
