Every now and then, our firm is asked about online legal services or even DIY-Trusts promoted by non-attorneys or TV personalities for kits that you can send away for in the mail! While it may be tempting to send away for a 'kit' or software that you see online or on late-night TV to "Do-it-Yourself" to save a few bucks, it is best to reconsider! Speaking of Trusts alone, there are many types of Trusts out there, and yet, not all of them are ideal or even suited for estate planning or asset protection purposes!

When it comes to Wills and Trusts, it is ALWAYS best to consult with a LOCAL and CERTIFIED Elder Law Attorney who actually lives in your area on such important matters. In these uncertain times, why leave your family's welfare and future planning to chance? The consequences of inadequate or just plain bad planning can be disastrous.
The fact is that 'cookie-cutter' planning solutions are NOT the answer! There is no such thing as 'one-size-fits-all' estate planning, as every case is TRULY different: Be careful! Similar to someone trying to fix their own plumbing after quickly watching a few YouTube videos instead of calling an expert in, this office has had to fix more than a few situations as a result of DIY planning efforts over the years. Don't go it alone - We are here to help! Contact us for more information, or to schedule an appointment.
