It’s tempting to look only at price when contemplating preparation of your estate plan. With on-line document production and document preparers charging far less than attorneys, you may easily be persuaded to save some money and avoid the attorney.
Remember your goal: You want to develop an estate plan, not just a document. Will the cheaper document achieve your objectives? Is an attorney’s experience and advice of any value to you? How will you know?
Ask yourself these questions:
The list goes on. There are a lot of different tools in the estate planner’s toolbox. Tools may be cheap, but you have to understand how to use them.
Don’t underestimate the value of an attorney’s advice. After all, that is what you are paying for, and need.
