I decided to build my estate planning and business law practice because of my educational background and personal interests. Further, I enjoy these areas of law because the goal is to prevent enduring the costs of going to court.
I generally do not have a problem reviewing documents prepared by clients. However, I have found that oftentimes it is just as costly to have it prepared by the attorney as to have it reviewed if the client wants it to more completely address the issues. However, unless it is a very simple document, I will not endorse or guarantee it.
I believe that the more knowledgeable a client is about legal issues and law, the more empowered they are about making choices that best fit their needs.
