Attorneys can choose many fields of practicing law, but one local lawyer chose estate planning to help and teach people important lessons about protecting their legacy. Bob Ross from Ross Estate Planning in Sturgeon Bay says he loves teaching people the importance of having their estate in order.
Ross says besides the three additional years of schooling after college, you must have a minimum of five years in estate planning before becoming fully certified. He estimates that he does an additional 80 to 100 hours of continuing education even though only15 hours a year are required to keep up his certification. According to payscale.com, the average salary for an Estate Planning Attorney is $76,273 per year.
