I was so lucky to have found Ms. Webb. As my parents were aging, new legal and financial questions arose with which none of us had any experience. Ms. Webb spent nearly two hours with us answering questions and sharing her professional knowledge and advice. She created an archive of our important documents and followed up via email throughout the following week until she could be sure that we felt confident and satisfied in the decisions we needed to make. She genuinely cares about her community and applies her expertise to help others before herself. Trustworthy, dependable, and efficient, Heidi Webb is a true gem!

The Benefit of Using An Attorney Instead of An Internet Service For Your Will

internet service

“Do I really need an attorney? Can I write my own will? ”

My quick answer is yes  —you can write your own will or use a free internet service to write your own Will.

In this age, you can watch a video on YouTube or read a DIY blog post and have the capability to Google just about anything. There’s seemingly limitless information at your finger-tips and it is easy to feel like you can sidestep the professionals for a cheaper solution.  The “catch” is some of that information is correct and some inaccurate but it is hard to discern which is which and even which is applicable to your circumstance.

The more important question is really SHOULD you write your own will?

Then my quick answer becomes NO. 

Even though some legal documents are free —they really are not one size fits all.  Laws vary from state to state and very small nuances can change what you should do.  Legal advice, guidance, professional knowledge, and peace of mind are why you pay an attorney.  A software system is only as good as its design. This software does not explain your options nor the implications/effects of those decisions.  A good estate planning attorney should be a trusted advisor can guide you, answer your questions, and help you to make informed and empowered decisions that are best for your family. 

That’s what we call money well spent.
