Comparisons to Traditional and Other Services
Form generating services like LegalZoom, Rocket Lawyer, and Willing are the big players in completing your will online. They have large marketing budgets aimed at pulling you in and convincing you that planning for your and your loved ones futures can be achieved via a computer program. Certainly there is a role technology can play in making legal services more efficient and cost effective.
But we believe these websites lack a very important piece of the estate planning puzzle: involving an actual attorney during the review process and the continued backing of an actual law firm while the will remains valid.
Let’s compare our law firm estate planning offerings with the corporate offerings

A Review of The Hughes Law Firm
Our experience has been great with them drawing up all our legal estate papers from scratch. So much to know, so many personal options. They were all run by us and explained in detail, much of which we did not have a clue. Can sleep much better now!
