Why Do You Need An Attorney To Make A Will?

Many websites offer do-it-yourself wills nowadays. A quick and easy option may seem compelling in your busy life. However, estate plans are often complicated and detailed. An easy option could overlook those details, and leave your family unprotected.

Consulting an experienced estate planning attorney can make sure your wishes and family are protected. They understand the details of the process and know how to create a proper and effective estate plan.

At Janssen Law, PLC, we take the burden of estate planning off your shoulders. Whenever possible, we work to facilitate the process and keep you informed of your rights and options. Our attorneys provide cost-effective and trusted services to families in Des Moines and central Iowa.

Your Family Has Distinct Needs

A will is your last testament in this life. You want it to appropriately reflect your wishes for your family and your legacy. An online will cannot understand or cater to your family's individual needs. As a father-and-son team, we understand just how different families are. At Janssen Law, PLC, we will sit down with you and discuss the best options for you to:

  • Provide for your family
  • Avoid potential conflicts
  • Safeguard your finances
  • Protect your assets

We will take the time to understand your family's needs and tailor our approach to meet your goals.

Laws Change Frequently

Federal and state laws are often subject to change. If you do not consult an estate planning attorney when creating or revising your will, you may not meet regulations. A probate court might find it invalid and leave many legal issues for your family to deal with in your absence.

Since the attorneys at Janssen Law, PLC, practice in state and federal courts, we always keep up to date with the changes in laws. This allows us to provide your family with knowledgeable guidance through every step of the estate planning process.
