I also won't be wedded to my mother's choice of lawyers, as my mother is by no means a good judge of anything except artwork and cat hair. I remember when she appointed me, and sent me a copy of her will. She'd used some Cletus rural Colorado lawyer. I noticed that the page numbering was incorrect on the will. Looking at that, my thought was: "Okay, if mom stays there, this guy isn't handling the estate on the grounds that even if he himself is a good lawyer, he hires dumb people who don't check their work carefully." However, she moved to the land of lakes and Scandinavians, so it's a non-issue.
