Should I hire an Attorney to help me draft a will, or can I do it myself?

Answer: We don’t recommend doing it yourself here’s why… 

Whether or not you need an Estate Planning Attorney to help you draft a Will generally depends on the extent and complexity of your assets and family situation as well as your personal level of sophistication on estate planning and probate matters. Even with a very simple estate, if your Will is not drafted correctly, you can cause your loved ones time, money and a lot of aggravation as well as a protracted Probate process. 

Now, if your estate is more complex and/or involves significant assets or family issues, it is certainly best to work with an Estate Planning Attorney to ensure that your wishes are carried out with respect to the disposition of your property. This will save time, money and additional grief for your heirs “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
