A Personal Family Lawyer® is a trusted advisor who helps you make the very best personal, financial, legal, and business decisions for your family throughout your lifetime and is there to guide your loved ones when you can't be.
Back in the day, families turned to their trusted family attorney for guidance, for their life events and challenges. As law firms became more focused on billable hours, lawyers became all about boiler plates documents and transactions and this personal relationship fell by the wayside.
With the rise of online document drafting services, like RocketLawyer® and LegalZoom®, one size fits all will and trust forms and documents became even more common. But, the trouble is that documents prepared on an online document drafting websites, often don’t keep your family out of court or out of conflict when you or your family member becomes incapacitated or dies.
