There are several reasons that you should not use LegalZoom or a Do-It-Yourself Online Forms Service. Many of the reasons and warning signs are spelled out in the Terms on LegalZoom’s website. The highlighted sections below are the focus areas.
The biggest reason you should not use LegalZoom or another DIY (do-it-yourself) service is a very simple one: They openly admit they are not a law firm, may not perform services that an attorney would do, and their website is not a substitute for consulting an attorney. If they admit they are not a law firm and you should consult an attorney there is absolutely no reason for you to pay twice – once for their service and second for an actual licensed attorney.
A second reason to not use LegalZoom or another DIY service is that they use a forms system which is a one size fits all solution. As we all know no one is alike and no situation is the same. Why should you be limited to this? As an Estate Planning law firm, we strive to work with you and create the estate plan that best fits you – not everyone!
