Estate Planning

Why use an attorney to draft Estate Planning documents?

"You never know your siblings until you split an inheritance with them." ~The advice of experience

With all the internet apps available on-line drafting legal documents has never been easier.

There are also trust-mills that mass market and provide services at minimal costs.

So why should I use an attorney to draft my estate planning documents?

The answer is, because an unacceptably high percentage of do-it-yourselfers do it wrong! Poor estate planning can drain families emotionally and financially.

If a little prevention is worth a pound of cure, then a little good planning, marked by thoughtful choices and clear discussions with an attorney and his clients, delving into the dynamics and needs of all family members - can side-step an ugly aftermath.

Estate planning attorneys often make more money correcting their clients' bad judgment than they charge for taking sufficient time to draft custom documents.

Unintended consequences

O. Henry was an American short story writer. He was famous for his stories which often had surprise endings.

He wrote, "Life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating."

In the story you write with your Estate Planning have a surprise ending that results in sniffles---or will it end will smiles and harmony among family members?
