Default Lawyer for wills

Anyone know a lawyer who is good at doing wills?
I know it's not that complicated but I find a lot of lawyers have little interest in doing it because it's not big money. They tend to have attitude or just take forever getting the job done.

We got ours done under a program run by the Lung Association. They refer you to a participating lawyer and the fees go the local Lung Association. That said, ours were fairly simple save having to provide for putting funds in trust for the kid if we both die. Not sure about your situation.

You're welcome. It's the least I can do for the guy who runs a useful service like this.

(Yeah, it's bit late coming. I tend to get distracted by the Advertised Companions forum and forget to look at the ones lower down. )

Depends how simple the will is. This one is a bit complicated so it has to be worded correctly to avoid problems down the road.

Most people here know I try to do everything by hand.......

Gerald,

Glad you realise that complex wills need a lawyer. I am not a lawyer myself but in my profession, I deal a lot with families and wills or lack of them.
People do not understand how important it is to have a will. Lots say that I am too young to have one or just don?t need one. If one does a search on the net for ?dying without a will? you will be surprised at the ramifications this leads to.

Had one gentleman I came across, just for an example who left his wife, no divorce or paperwork, met another lady and they had a house together, plus he had a collection of cars. He did not realize that since he was still lawfully married to his ex, she would inherit everything he had. Nothing would go to his present partner without a will.

For those who have property, or a child on ODSP, wills are imperative with associated trusts to take care of matters.

As far as finding a lawyer, you could contact the one you deal with for business or mortgage and if he/she is not interested in producing will for you, ask for a recommendation of a lawyer from them who would. They would have the contacts as to who is good in the field for normal or specialised wills.

Just my nickel?s worth since we don?t have ?two cents? any more??

Yep, my sister was just shy of 40 when she passed away right before Christmas. No one should ever think they are too young. Fortunately, for her minor son from a prior relationship anyway. she didn't think she was too young, and made arrangements for him due to the complexity of the step parent relationship.

Although this seems like a late chime in....I just recently joined here. Wills are a necessity! It defines your final wishes and outlines the testamentary benificiaries. Everyone's situation is unique and hence a Will is tailored to your situation. Tax planning becomes a consideration to maximize your legacy in certain instances. Equally important is the creation of Powers of Attorney for Personal Care + also Property. Often overlooked! Additionally, all of these need to be updated as personal situations and assets change. Just some considerations in making estate planning choices. There are many lawyers who practice exclusively in "Wills, Estates + Trusts" -- this is their domain. You don't want a general practitioner. Spend a little more to have it done properly!
