A note about Internet Lawyering:
We’ve seen documents prepared by LegalZoom create a lot of confusion and expensive litigation. More often than not, they fail to identify the context of and capture your specific needs. However, we always let clients know if there are a good do-it-yourself solutions.
Something to understand about online document services is that they are not allowed to give actual legal advice. States have started issuing licenses to non-lawyers, sometimes called Legal Document Assistants or Limited License Legal Technicians. The legal industry is trying to find the best way to improve access to legal information and use technology, especially to serve people who are impoverished.
The question alive right now is whether these services are causing benefit or creating more harm, because there are a lot of wrong fits and misunderstandings arising from these tools.
