DIY Legal Services. Yes or No?
Many of us often think, "I have heard about services like LegalZoom or prepaid legal services…can’t I do my own legal work and save money?"
Here's is my answer. Time and time again, this is my answer.
My grandfather, who was an Alabama attorney for 50 years, and who is still the youngest person to ever graduate from the University of Alabama Law School, spoke often on this subject. He said “people can do their own legal cases….you can do your own heart surgery too. How do you think that might work out?”
Of course, the answer is it would be a disaster!
The bottom line is you get what you pay for and a lawyer’s role is to protect his client. You will have peace of mind in knowing you are protected rather than the possibility that something was left out, incomplete or not applicable in your case. Furthermore, an attorney may realize issues that need to be addressed that you didn’t even think about and legalzoom can’t suggest.
If you are going to make the effort, do it right. Don’t perform your own heart surgery!
