Should Executor Hire Estate Planner in Decedent's State?

It is all about where the attorney is approved to practice, but we recommend hiring a lawyer practicing in the state where the probate administration will occur. Too much depends on local practice to rely simply on the laws as stated. In addition, a lawyer who is doing a lot of probate work in a particular court may be more efficient and thus less expensive than one who is handling a single case.
