Is Hiring an Estate Planning Lawyer Worth It?

It is true that in todays society, you can prepare your own will or trust using the internet or a book on estate planning. The question is whether you should!

Kiplinger magazine has a quiz to test your knowledge of what makes money savings sense and what doesn’t. Such questions as whether it is cost effective to join a warehouse club, change your oil every 3000 miles, and invest in “load” mutual funds. Question 4 asks whether it is worth it to hire a lawyer to prepare your will or trust. The answer is “yes”. Kiplinger says it makes sense to pay a competent lawyer a reasonable fee to prepare a will or a trust. In the long run, it is cheaper than a costly legal battle later.
