First, just to clarify the definition of a lottery winner. To be considered a “winner” in any given lottery, one must have purchased a ticket for at least $1 and won at least $500 million. No other amount is enough to qualify you as a millionaire.
Second, what type of lawyer should a person hire when they win such an immense prize? According to attorney Steven M. Zansberg: “I would say that there are three types of lawyers that can help with these sort of large amounts: 1) Those who handle trusts and estates; 2) those who handle tax issues (such as trust planning); 3) those who specialize in financial planning or wealth management — either individually or through their law firm — and family law attorneys (e.g., divorce).”
