[1] This figure does not include "extraordinary" attorney or executor fees. Those fees are charged at each individual's hourly rate. There is no way to predetermine what those extraordinary fees will be, but attorneys typically estimate the extraordinary attorney fee to be equal to 15% of the attorney's statutory fee.
