The Benefits of Using a Tennessee Wills Attorney Over Online Legal Services

With the hustle and bustle of life these days, we all have so many things going on. The 80’s classic movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has a great quote talking about the speed of life: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Whether it is keeping up with our families, jobs, or other interests, we are all looking for ways to spend more time doing what we love. As a result, many people are looking for an easy way to save both time and effort. However, there are some things in life that really do require specialized attention.

Online services have made so many things much easier. Many people use certain websites in an attempt to preliminarily diagnose an illness or even do their taxes, but we understand the limitations that those services offer. Those online services simply do not offer the same amount of attention to detail or a complete understanding of a situation that an actual doctor or accountant can provide. Similarly, a Tennessee wills lawyer can provide a number of benefits that online legal services are unable to match.

Services like LegalZoom are best suited for drafting basic and general legal documents. They are not law firms and are consequently unable to provide the state specific advice that an actual attorney could. Services like LegalZoom are unable to review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw any legal conclusions about the information you provided, or apply the law to your particular situation. Because each state’s laws are different, it is important to know specifically what your state laws are before drafting documents like a will, power of attorney, or other important legal documents. Using a Tennessee wills attorney gives you the peace of mind that you are receiving legal advice specific to Tennessee’s laws based on actual experience.

Rather than providing information specific to your unique circumstances, LegalZoom resorts to listing general information on common legal issues. It often does this by indicating that a majority of users have answered a particular way. However, not every person’s situation is the same. A Tennessee wills attorney is able to provide specialized attention to the issues that matter the most to you and your family. With a Tennessee wills lawyer, both you and your attorney are able to ask in-depth questions to clarify what is the best for your particular situation. Whether you would like to set up a trust for your children or provide for the specialized needs of a family member, a Tennessee wills attorney can help you with your family’s needs.

Mistakes can happen much more easily with online services. The burden is placed on you to determine whether or not you have correctly provided any required information. You may leave out some critical information. Unfortunately with a legal document like a will, mistakes will generally not be caught until after a person dies. This can already be such a stressful time for a family. Adding any more issues like legal issues with a will is the last thing that you want to deal with. You can prevent any mistakes and remain stress-free by using a Tennessee wills lawyer.

If you are looking for the ease of an online legal service combined with the specialized attention of a lawyer, contact our office today. Our team of Tennessee wills attorneys would be happy to assist you.
