Preparing Clear And Understandable Legal Documents

When a client comes to me with an over-the-counter will or a trust prepared by another lawyer, the wording of the document is often unnecessarily confusing. This presents a danger since the person who signed the document may not truly understand what it says. The document might also be incomplete or fail to address necessary issues. As an attorney, I take care to see that every will, revocable or irrevocable trust or contract I create is in clear, understandable language. Not only do we make our clients understand what they are signing, but we also prepare the document with the aim of protecting them from future challenges.

Particularly in the areas of estate planning law and probate avoidance, you will be discussing sensitive and personal matters with your attorney. As such, it is important to work with a lawyer who has the experience to protect your interests and who will understand your unique concerns.
