A: Lawyers in Rhode Island charge different rates for estate plans. Some would charge $2000, some $4000, and some would charge more such as $10,000. The higher end lawyers are doing tax work that is for wealthy families. For middle class families that have the usual set of assets including a house, cars and some accounts, you could get a good trust with wills and powers of attorney for about $2000.
