Buyer Beware: Internet services and estate planning dabblers will try to sell you a cheap will or estate package, that’s usually not even worth the paper it’s printed on! Do not fork over your hard-earned money for poorly-written junk.
An estate planning lawyer can help you navigate the world of estate planning. Hire a lawyer that you trust and want to work with. Then, listen to him or her. I remind my clients that I don’t tell my plumber how to fix the pipes – I rely on his or her expertise. In the same way, you should let your lawyer tell you what best fits your situation. Hire an expert, and listen to that expert.
