Why hiring an Estate Planning Attorney is important

Mike and Dan will design estate-planning solutions that are tailored to your individual needs and that will give you unprecedented peace of mind that your loved ones future will be looked after.
Will and estate planning documents are available online to do yourself, but legalities concerning your family’s future should have professional guidance. No two people have the exact same financial picture (not even spouses!). An intern or a guy overseas with a cookie cutter solution that an attorney merely signs off on is no way to protect your loved ones after you’re gone.
