I help people handle all aspects of end-of-life planning — writing wills, making estate plans, and preparing Advance Medical Directives and powers of attorney, among other things. Although many clients begin this task only reluctantly, when they have finished they are almost always glad to have finally done what needs to be done to protect their families and their assets.
While websites like LegalZoom often do a perfectly good job, you won’t know if the documents they produce do a good or a bad job, and your family may find out the hard way. It doesn’t have to be expensive to have a lawyer do your will. I don’t claim to be as inexpensive as these internet programs, but you will know, when you are done, that you have a will that does what you want to do.
