Why Do I Need an Attorney to Create a Will?

These days, the airwaves are filled with advertisements for providers of legal forms. For a very low fee, you can go online and download a standard form, fill in the blanks and create a will. If you execute it properly, it probably will be valid in the eyes of the probate court.

While the low price of a downloadable will form may make it seem attractive, you should think twice before buying it. There are many advantages to working directly with an experienced estate planning lawyer rather than relying on a one-size-fits-all will form.

Customized and Affordable Estate Planning Services

Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, is a team of lawyers that provides customized estate planning services to people from all walks of life. For an affordable and reasonable fee, we can draft a will that protects your assets, enables you to provide for your family and gives you peace of mind. In addition to drafting a will, we can also create other key estate planning instruments such as an advance directive to physicians, power of attorney or living trust.

Put Our Experience to Work for You

When you choose Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, you will work directly with an experienced estate planning lawyer. This adviser will review your situation and ask key questions about your family, your financial situation and your goals. Based on these factors, your lawyer will then create a customized will that reflects your values and protects your assets. As your life situation and finances change over time, we can modify your will to accommodate your new circumstances.

A fill-in-the-blanks will form cannot account for unique circumstances. What if you have a child with special needs? What if you get divorced? How can you protect your children's inheritance rights if you remarry? At Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, we have answers to these and other questions — as well as creative solutions that can provide you with peace of mind.
