Good Service for14 years – We signed on to PLP when we got to Charlotte in 1997 to set up a living will and have a legal firm to consult and a reliable tax accountant. I have been helped several times by the legal department and have been very satisfied with my partnership with them. Legal fees can be expensive, but it is a comfort to be able to call them up and get legal counsel without resorting to the Yellow Pages and hope you get a good lawyer.
Stay Away – We had our we done there several years ago and quickly $99 soared over $1000. What really bothers me is that 5 years later we needed to change out some Guardian names and they wanted another $586.
Informative and convenient – My wife and I had our legal documents prepared by Personal Legal Plans, off Dunwoody Road, a couple of months ago. The person that came out to our home was very imformative and he explained the difference between having wills prepared and having a living trust prepared. After we made a phone call to the attorneys, we decided on a plan that had a "childrens trust" provision for our family. We went into the office to sign our documents and we were impressed with their service and attention to detail (we spoke to a lady named Martha). They told us that we have a year to make changes to our documents, without cost, one year of tax prep services and one year for legal advice, from their attorneys (in another location in Atlanta). I have since spoken to the law firm twice and I have found them to be helpful.
Not what it appears to be – My experience with this organization was less than favorable. It appears to be designed to bring you in with the $99 will and then up-sell you to the much more expensive trust by salespeople that are more interested in their bonus than in your best interests. I was told a trust was the ONLY way I could be protected only to later find out that a less expensive will would have been just as acceptable. I was also told that the free legal advice and changes to the document were "free for life" with the trust plan, which is not the case. You find out once you are into it that you only get a limited time frame for free and then you must pay monthly to retain the service. It sounds like a huge deal, but it really isn't.
This program is designed for the married couple with a couple of kids or two who need to do nothing more than leave everything to their kids and assign guardians for them should they both die together, since everything automatically goes to the living spouse should one of them die first.
They are not attorneys but create mass documents that are a "one-size-fits-all" and sign the documents as though they have been prepared by an attorney. I am sure they are legal but they are not what MOST people need to protect themselves.
