Trust me, you need a trust!

Probate is the lawyer's retirement fund.  For generations, lawyers have prepared wills for people with the the hope that the family will call them when it is time to probate the will.  The truth is that most people need a revocable living trust.  I started AvoidProbate with the hope of making this important legal document accessible to everyone
