Why an Estate Planning Attorney is Way Better than the Internet

The internet is a treasure trove of resources and tools that fit exactly what we’re looking for. Just the other day, I was trying to put together a chair, and I found a YouTube video that showed me step-by-step how to assemble the exact same one I had in front of me. A task that could have taken hours was done without much stress – or sweat!

So, what about online estate planning services? If you Google “how to make a will,” you’re met with fill-in-the-blank forms and a few instructions on how to make it all legal. But you have to consider – does this document really give me the protection and peace I’m looking for? Am I confident that it’s been done correctly and addresses all of my needs?

Families often come into our office with an online plan they made and admit that they’re just not comfortable with it. What they are now looking for is an attorney that’s willing to get to know their family dynamics and provide the best recommendations. “We know the questions to ask, and we know how to guide families to create a solid estate plan,” says Alles Law founder and attorney Tim Alles. 

Here are just a few benefits of working with an estate planning firm:

  • We have seen thousands of unique family situations and can keep up with the laws as they change.
  • Our attorneys know the right questions to ask, and the right legal tools to fit what you are looking for. 
  • We consider what supporting documents you need beyond only a trust or will. 

Your family needs the assurance that if something were to happen to you, your plan addresses all of the important things. And a standard online form simply can’t provide that same assurance. 

If you do this right the first time with a team that works on estate plans every single day, you will save time and money down the road.
