Nov 14, 2022

I frequently review questions and answers on the Reddit for Estate Planning. Many times, there are legitimate questions from people as well as good advice provided. However, I'm frequently reminded that there are a lot of people online who are seeking the answer they want to hear rather than the truth. In one such post, someone asked for "logical reasons why not to do (their) trust or will online?" The attorneys on that thread gave solid, logical, and experienced answers why it was a bad idea, but the person posting kept countering with accusations that the attorneys just wanted to make money. Here is a complete saga of the back and forth with the original poster who DIDN'T want real advice, but instead just wanted the answer he WANTED TO HEAR.
