Thanks, yep there are plenty of BAD APPLES in the business. Fortunately, I first had a "real life" as an Electrical Engineer, Farmer and small business owner before I got into this semi retirement lawman gig, so I'm not forced to do it for a living....I do a fair amount of small estate work (the 7 or so months were home) because the high dollar big shot firms in town dont want to do a lot of paper work for whats chicken feed and petty cash money for them, but a good honest wage for me.
When people ask me about do it yourself forms I tell them theres a good chance they will be correct but its their money and their risk.
A client once came to me with a whole ton of forms and a mess and hodgepodge he got from the Courthouse to settle his moms estate and asked what I would charge to help him fill them out, hoping to save some money. I took a look at all the mess and the wrong forms he had attempted to fill out and the pile of "crap" and told him Id charge $3,000 to help him with the mess he started or $2,000 if he threw it all way and just let me do it right lol........
