I have worked with Heidi on several issues and have been impressed by her dedication, integrity, plain English explanations, and thoroughness. I highly recommend her based on her high professional standards and she also is a kind woman with a beautiful heart.

Sending out a big T/Y to Heidi Webb, for helping me through a rough time in my life related to some Estate related legal stuff that was added to an already overstressed life. I know it’s her job, but she was always there for me with moral support and concern as well as legally. It’s finally winding down and I can soon get on with my life! And that, is …PRICELESS! I highly recommend her to anyone in the area that needs elder law and probate / estate/ wills etc. She’s Daytona’s coolest attorney!

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.
