It was my pleasure to be featured on this week’s edition of the Rocket Lawyer podcast out of San Francisco, subtitled: “A Series of Unfortunate Events.”  Here’s what the hosts had to say about our discussion:

“San Diego-based estate planning lawyer Daniel Printz tells us the myriad of things to be aware of when drawing up a Will, especially in the areas of child guardianship and business succession. Some of the case studies may highlight unfortunate situations, but fortunately for you listeners this was one of our best, most informative interviews thus far. We highly recommend sharing it with your friends and family!”

For a Rocket Lawyer podcast, this interview was fairly long; 23 of the 32-minute podcast consisted of my interview.  Rocket Lawyer is focusing on April as “Make-a-Will Month,” and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it.

Wills are, after all, probably the best bang for the buck in the estate planning arena.  Because of competition from online services, attorneys have dropped their prices for attorney-drafted wills to the point where it has essentially become a loss-leader.

Even so, it’s a vital piece of estate planning package, especially for parents with minor children who need to designate a guardian of the person and a guardian of the estate. While almost everyone could benefit from more sophisticated estate planning than a will allows, it is certainly true that a will is better than  no planning at all!

Wills with guardianship provisions for minor children can usually be drafted and executed in a single day. If you’re interested in finding out about our low prices for simple wills, give us a call right now at (858) 720-8250 – just ask for Daniel.
