Hiring an Estate Planning Attorney

Time ran a piece called "I Can't Take It With Me". The writer approaches estate planning with humor. However, the description of the lawyer and the process he followed is anything but funny to me. Sadly, too many attorneys operate this way, and it turns people off of estate planning. Whether you are 18 or 88, have money or not, estate planning is important. Why? You take control. You make decisions, not a court. I urge people to remember, not all attorneys act like the one in this article, nor do they charge such high rates. Stories like this may keep people from tackling this important issue. I hope it won't stop you from taking control
