Do I need an attorney to write my will?

While it is not required for you to have a lawyer write your will, it is highly recommended that you do have one. With today’s technology, you may find a number of different online will-writing kits, and maybe even some blogs or youtube videos will tell you that you do not need to hire an attorney. But, unless you have an extremely basic estate plan, you are putting yourself in a situation where you may have many bumps along the road by not hiring an attorney. Furthermore, the small fee will pay off right away with the thought of knowing that your hard-earned assets will be protected and distributed according to your wishes upon your passing.

It is no surprise that creating a will by yourself is not easy, and even if you are an excellent writer, you must be especially careful with the language you choose. Even if your wording is completely clear in your mind, what you mean and what you write can be viewed as two completely different things when brought into a legal context. For your family to benefit to the fullest from your will, it is in your best interest to reach out to our firm today and retain the services of a skilled estate planning attorney.

What else is involved in an estate plan?

As you may know, estate planning is an incredibly document-heavy and convoluted process, as it allows you to craft things like powers of attorneys, establish trusts, appoint executors, guardians, and more. It is important to recognize that all of these are very sensitive, demanding issues in our lives, so even if making a comprehensive estate plan can be a daunting task, it is undoubtedly worth doing.
