Internet Estate Planning Forms

A colleague posted the following response in a professional listserve discussion about how to respond when a client asks about using online estate planning documents instead of hiring an estate planning attorney:

"I have a physician client who asked me to set up a Professional Limited Liability Company for his practice.  At our first appointment, he asked me why could he not just go to the internet and pull up the necessary forms.  I told him he was welcome to do so; just as I could go to the internet, diagnose my medical condition, and then order the prescriptions myself.

He sat down and said, 'OK, where do we start?'"
