Forbes has an article about what baby boomers need to know to make a will.
Everyone knows that having a will is important, but why do so many people fail or avoid creating one? According to the article:
A national telephone survey … showed that many people who had not taken action were intimidated by the legal expense and their own ignorance.
I work hard to overcome both issues in my practice. I don’t charge for my estate planning consultations where I provide a simple explanations of the most frequently asked questions and the most important issues. Whether someone hires me after a consultation is their choice, but they will get a free personalized legal seminar.
And, when it comes to cost, I don’t bill estate planning clients by the hour. You get one simple flat fee. Easy and simple.
