Hey guys looking to make a will for my family. Should I hire a lawyer (how much will it cost) or is there any generic template that everyone uses?

In US?


Thanks McK1. Yes I am in US (NJ). I already checked it out. Just wanted to get a pulse from people here what’s the best way to go about. Any experiences that I should consider.

See if your firm offers legal plans as a benefit. Our did and that’s how I got it done. Otherwise lawyer said it would be close to 1k.


Ohh that’s nice. Let me check with my firm.

We did for our family. $500 total cost. Do it.

We used local lawyer here in VA.

We used the Hyatt legal plan through our company as well.

We did pay some amount (a couple hundred i think) - It would’ve been done for free if we didn’t have to transfer our properties in the name of the trust.

Thanks SC1!


Thanks KPMG2. How was your experience using Legalzoom?

Hello - I can DM want to get the details too

I'm trying to suss out if a new member of our dept hates me or my team (she manages a different team).

My initial take is she's just hard to read and probably a tightly controlled introvert. My direct report felt she's 'cold as ice,' 'bristling' at our suggestions, and forming a clique that wants to do their own thing with no input from our team. He's triggered very easily, and there was no explicit evidence, just a 'vibe' so I wrote it off. (See 1st comment)
