Is Hiring a Wills Attorney a Hassle?

What’s easier:  Hiring a wills lawyer to create your will or paying a fee to an online company to do your will on your own?

Hiring an estate planning attorney is easier on you, and you will have someone available to answer any questions you may have. When searching for an attorney to prepare your will, try to find an attorney focusing on estate planning and probate law.  Although almost all general practitioners are wonderful attorneys, estate planning is not their primary area of expertise. It would be like having a family doctor do your heart surgery.

From your perspective, the hard part isn’t all the legal wording (the attorney handles all that).  The hard part is determining who should be your executor, who should inherit from you, who should take care of your minor children, and so forth.

As such, hiring an attorney is easier on you.  The wills attorney, having created wills for many different families, can help you make all the choices.

For example, I routinely encounter families having a hard time naming the executor of the estate.  Well, I give them a list of factors to consider.  After I give them some pointers to consider, usually the choice is clear.

With almost every Last Will & Testament I write for people in Texas, I hear the clients say:

“I didn’t know it would be this easy to get my Will done.”

“I feel so much better having my Will done.”
