Online Estate Planning? Think About It

Posted on: September 30th, 2010
Call me old-fashioned, but I think estate planning should involve a personalized and continuing relationship, not a transaction.  While some may prefer to use low-cost websites or software because they are more concerned about price than value, think about what they won’t be getting.
Can LegalZoom or its ilk:
  • Look you in the eye?
  • Shake your hand?
  • Listen to your concerns and goals?
  • Meet your family?
  • Answer legal questions?
  • Help you if you or a loved one becomes disabled
  • Help you after the death of a family member?
  • Notify you of changes in the law?
  • Say that it is answerable to a State Bar?
  • Say it has malpractice insurance?
  • Say that it attends many days of continuing legal education each year?
  • Refer you to other professionals to assist you with other matters?
The answer is obvious.  Think about it, and then decide what’s best for you and your family.
