Who pays for the estate attorney? Our probate fees for representing you in the estate settlement and administration of a Florida probate estate or trust administration will depend on the facts and circumstances of your particular case.  Often our Florida probate lawyers will work on a flat fee or fixed fee basis.  Other times, a Florida probate lawyer’s or attorney’s hourly rates are appropriate. In appropriate Florida probate or will contests litigation, we will consider working on a contingent fee basis, which means there is no fee if there is no recovery. In particular, if your Florida probate administration is for the sole purpose of a Florida real estate probate, i.e, transferring title to Florida real property, our Florida probate lawyers usually will work on a fixed fee basis, so that you will know from the beginning exactly what your total cost will be for the  Florida probate of the will.
