Default Re: Last will and testament or living trust

My 5% comment was geared mainly toward the old fashioned trust depts at banks as well as some law firms. If you have a strong relationship w/ your financial planner, ask him or her if they would be willing to do it pro bono. In my situation, 99.9% of the time I know my client's estate better than the spouse so it just makes good sense. They know I will absolutely act in their best interests and I will not charge them. Moreover, I am the Trustee anyway so it is [almost] a logical progression.
