Maybe Lawyers Aren’t So Useless After All

A question I get rather frequently is: “Can’t I just go online and do this myself?  Why should I pay you to draft my will?”  If you have this thought, I encourage you to read this article.

If you personally don’t understand the law regarding wills, and how precise language can completely change your intent, then printing a form off of the internet is a bad idea.  Saving money in attorney fees now can cost your loved ones much more in the future.  It pays to make sure that someone who knows how to draft a will does it correctly.

The information you obtain at this site is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation.
