Can I Switch Lawyers When Updating My Will?
I want to change my will. Can I go to different attorney? Do I have to notify my current attorney who wrote my current will?
Yes, you can go to any attorney to update your will and other estate planning documents. You don’t need to notify your prior attorney, but if she’s holding your original will, it’s a good idea so that she doesn’t have to continue preserving an original document that’s been superseded.
