The cost of probating an estate varies. Most of the costs associated with probate consist of attorneys’ fees. In the majority of estate cases, attorneys charge at an hourly rate. We, for example, charge $400 per hour, and require a deposit for future legal work depending on the scope of the case. The total cost of the estate is commensurate with the amount of work involved for the estate’s attorney.
