Whether or not you need a lawyer for estate administration depends on the situation. If you have the time and organizational skills, and the estate is small enough or doesn't have too many complications, you may be able to administer its division without hiring a lawyer. Many essential documents like a Last Will and Testament or a Trust Letter to a Bank or Broker are available on RocketLawyer.com, where you can complete them yourself quickly and easily.

If you're not comfortable handling the details of the estate, or ever feel overwhelmed by its complexity, or even just want a lawyer's input, you can Find a Lawyer to help you. If you are named the executor of an estate, you can still consult a lawyer and hire professional services to help you administrate.  In the case of the death of a family member, even if you are handling most of the estate administration, you'll probably need a lawyer for the probate process.
