Benefits of Hiring an Estate Planning Attorney

If you’ve decided, you need an estate plan you may be weighing the pros and cons of hiring an attorney. Although there are some people who prefer to go the “do-it-yourself” route, this isn’t always advised. This is especially true if you own a company or have a lot of assets.

For this post, we wanted to highlight some of the benefits of working with an experienced estate planning attorney.

They’ll be able to provide you with expert guidance

Estate planning is about more than just drawing up some documents. Your attorney will take time to get to know you. They’ll want to know about your family, your finances and your long-term goals. They can also help you understand the ins and outs of different types of trusts, the benefits of drawing up a medical power of attorney and they can also help you understand how a financial power of attorney works.

When you receive the guidance of an attorney, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your state and assets will be handled according to your wishes. It will also help ensure that your heirs are cared for in the way you want. A DIY piece of software can’t do this.

You’ll have added certainty

Every state is different, and the laws in each state can differ from one to the next. It’s also worth noting that no two families are alike. If you’re thinking about going the DIY route, you should know that estate planning software is more of a one-size-fits-all option.

When you work with an experienced lawyer, they’ll be able to help you understand how the laws in different states work and they’ll be able to help you craft an estate plan that meets your exact needs.

They know how to navigate complex situations

If you need to create a living trust, this isn’t something you’ll want to do with an online tool. Living trusts are complex documents that need to be outlined properly.  If you have significant assets and you want them distributed according to very specific guidelines, an attorney will be able to help ensure your wishes are followed to the letter.

An experienced estate planning attorney understands that no two estates are alike, and that each one needs to be handled differently.

Plans often need to be updated

Depending on the type of estate plan you decide to establish (ie: a living trust), your estate plan will likely need to be updated as your needs change. An estate planning attorney will understand how to do this properly.

  2. I like how you said that an estate planning attorney can help you understand the ins and outs of different types of trusts. My father told me that he would like to write a trust because he does not want to leave without handling that. I will recommend him to check that with a professional so he can make sure everything will be left as he wishes.

  3. My godfather needs to help to divide his properties equally, but he is not sure where to start. It was great when you talked about how an attorney can ensure your wishes are followed to the letter. This should convince him to hire a living trust attorney for his will.
