The July, 2012 Arizona bar results – listing those dedicated people who took and passed the bar exam – was released last Friday, October 12th. It takes a great amount of work and dedication to pass the bar exam. It’s a great day for all of those newly admitted members of the bar!
What does this mean to you? It means there are many more lawyers practicing law. Some will work for existing firms, while others will “hang their own shingle” and start life as a solo practitioner. Those who need legal services now have an even greater opportunity to find an attorney.
But be cautious! Anyone who is admitted to practice law in the State can practice any type of law. This means that any of these newly admitted folks can prepare an estate plan for you – but is it truly the plan that works best for your situation? Does that lawyer know enough about the intricacies of estate planning to develop and draft a plan that will provide you with the peace of mind you need and deserve? Can you rest easy knowing that your attorney created a plan that will work properly when the time comes?
In the whole scheme of things, I have not been practicing long. However, I have the support of a law firm that engages only in estate planning. I have a law firm that has attorneys with 30 to 40 years of experience. I have a law firm that supports me so I can provide our clients with the knowledge, and peace of mind, that the plan will work.
When you hire an attorney to prepare your estate plan, you want to feel good about that experience. And here at MH, the attorneys work together to ensure that all questions are answered and we put the best plan in place for your specific circumstances.
