  • At Aiston Law LLC, we help families who want to make things as easy as possible for their loved ones in life and in death. As a Mom, I know that parents want to preserve their hard-earned wealth, but that we want to pass on so much more than material wealth! We want to make sure that our kids are always with the right people, that they have everything they need to pursue their dreams, and that they know what our values are and how fiercely we love them. As a Future Retiree, I know that we all want to have worry-free golden years where we can enjoy travel, recreation, and spending time with our kids and grandkids. As a Daughter, I know that adult children worry about their parents, and want to make sure they will have the care they need in their elder years. Worrying about these things can be overwhelming, but you deserve peace of mind, and we’re here to help you to get it.

As a probate litigator, I feel much more comfortable contesting a Legal Zoom type will than a will prepared by an attorney. There are not only the potential issues with incorrect formalities, I also know there is not going to be an estate planning attorney who will testify in support of the will.

What is good for probate litigators is bad for consumers.

Really great perspective, Mike! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

With all the uncertainty surrounding the federal estate tax, I've been using a blog by the name of (surprise!) "Future of the Federal Estate Tax," available at, to stay updated.

I hope you find it as useful as I do, Candice.

Well said, Candice.

I too found it interesting that people who used LegalZoom mentioned ease and convenience more often than cost. Inconveniences that Greg Luce mentioned in his blog post included the hassle of:

1. finding an attorney

2. taking the time to make an appointment

3. taking the time to meet with an attorney

4. making and attending follow-up appointments

5. taking time off work

Making the process more convenient for clients, through a virtual law office, for example, can attract clients who want the convenience of an online solution, but don't want to take the risks involved in forgoing legal advice.
