Why Do You Need an Estate Planning Attorney?

People sometimes tend to underestimate the things that professionals do. We have all heard stories about do-it-yourself advocates who made things worse by biting off more than they could chew. They made rookie mistakes, and they turned relatively simple jobs into more complicated and costly situations that were ultimately handled by qualified people. This is a lesson that you should apply when you are considering the subject of estate planning. It can seem as though the creation of documents is a relatively simple endeavor. After all, there are websites on the Internet that sell worksheets and downloads that you can use to fill in the blanks on generic legal documents. Do you really need an estate planning lawyer to plan your estate? In fairness, there is no legal requirement that mandates the involvement of a licensed, practicing attorney.
