Estate planning in the age of digital technology

The advent of digital technologies is changing the landscape of estate planning. The conventional way of finding a reputable estate planning attorney San Diego is now complemented with easy-to-access digital resources. Indeed, anybody can get estate planning information way easier than ever; they can now access such resources anytime, anywhere, through desktop computer as well as on mobile devices. However, this estate planning digital trend also comes with some challenges, including the need for effective strategy to be able to discern legit information from the ‘noise’.

Taking advantage of Internet technology

Estate planning in the age of digital technologies offers a number of advantages both for client and estate planning attorney San Diego. The Internet is bridging the gap between a person who needs help to craft a credible estate plan and a person who can offer the help (lawyer). How can both optimize the use of this technology? In the client side, one can take advantage of this technology by accessing legitimate resources that are useful in building a good estate plan, which are available for free. In the estate planning service provider’s side, on the other hand, a lawyer can provide better services by making it sure that their estate planning resources are readily available, easy to access by their clients. Credible estate planning resources made available online to help clients can help make estate planning firms improve their reputation as a service provider. And they will attract more prospects.

Making online search more efficient and filtering the noise

As more and more estate planning firms venturing online to reach more prospective clients, one might find the search for estate planning resources a bit challenging – which estate planning firm to choose? Well, here are some things to take into account to ensure that one is dealing with a legit source:

  • Engage with estate planning firms that have been recognized as reputable by legit review agencies (e.g. Better Business Bureau).
  • Reputable estate planning websites can easily be distinguished by the number of positive reviews, badges from rating agencies (with live links to the websites of such agencies), as well as validation from government agencies.
  • And, many times, one can discern if it can be trusted or not by just looking at the content the website contains (even obvious errors should send a red flag)

In other words, one should set the criteria ready before the start of the search for the best estate planning lawyer online. With such criteria, one can filter the noise, making the search more efficient.
