One of the keys with legal documents is to find the right attorney. Not only do they need to be qualified in your type of situation, but “right sized” as we refer to it. There’s no need to pay a large firm more for a consultation, when a small firm may be able to prepare the documents for a similar fee. At the same time, it may be best to deal with a firm having more extensive offerings if that better suits your needs.
