We’ve all heard the term “buyer beware.” Surprisingly, that phrase often applies when consumers begin researching Wills and Trusts for Estate Planning and LLCs and Corporations for Business Planning.
Most people think they need a lawyer to prepare these important documents, but that’s actually not the case. The American Bar Association estimates that only 3% of lawyers in the U.S. are competent in the area of tax and estate planning. The California Bar Association estimates that fewer than one-half of one-percent (0.5%) of lawyers are competent in this complex and ever-changing area of law. And IF you can find a competent Estate Planning lawyer, you’ll pay big bucks, often starting at $4,000 – $5,000 and up!
If only 3% of lawyers can look at a Trust document and determine its quality and effectiveness, how can we as consumers possibly know if the Trust we’ve acquired is any good? Truth is, there’s a great deal of sub-standard work in the area of Wills and Trusts. Put less diplomatically, there’s a lot of bad work out there! As in life, there’s usually one or two ways to do things right, and about a million ways to mess things up!
