DIY Mistakes | Attorney in Cary NC

Have you considered drafting your own estate plan so that you can bypass working with an attorney in Cary NC? If so, you may want to think twice. Sometimes, we can make mistakes while doing our own estate plan and never even realize it. Below, you'll find a few common mistakes that can happen when you choose not to work with an attorney in Raleigh NC

These companies are generally not real law firms, and do not have licensed lawyers on staff.  Many of them hire people they call “document assistants.” They should not be offering legal advice if they are not licensed to practice law, leaving you with unanswered questions.

Not being aware of changes in law.

Estate laws change because of new cases and legislation, especially when it comes to taxes. You probably do not stay on top of that kind of information, nor do the websites and companies who sell DIY kits. The information you receive from them may not be the most accurate.
