“Opening a solo practice, I have had the opportunity to take part in many trainings for different software’s and products. The trainings for InterActive Legal have been among the best I’ve come across. Each team member has been patient, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. The content has been relevant and informative.

Michael Graham

“I have used InterActive Legal in my practice since I became a Co-Founder of the company in 2003. I switched to the new, online version in July 2021 after using the desktop version and then the version based upon WorkSpaces and WorkDocs. The new online version is even better than I had hoped. Not only is it more modern and elegant to use, it makes the drafting process a joy. I encourage Legacy users to migrate over to the online version. Faster, easier, and far more intuitive. If you’re not yet a subscriber, do your practice a big favor and Request A Demo from this website!"

Matthew Dawson

“Interactive Legal has been the game changer for my practice. The quality of the work product produced is incredible, the constant educational webinars, and the forum feedback has grown my practice from a simple estate planning practice to serving clients with complex and sophisticated issues. It might sound cheesy, but I feel part of a family and every time I call in for something, I feel like the IL representative has a genuine interest in helping me. Linda is awesome, IT support is incredible, and you need to take out a 10M keyman policy on Teresa--she is incredibly knowledgeable, always very professional and friendly, and extremely patient. ”

Lewis J. Saret

“I have been an ILS subscriber for well over a decade and I love the ILS service. The benefits I’ve experienced include the following: (1) the ILS service has made me a better lawyer because I’ve learned so much from the software, the discussion board, and the included webinars and other resources; (2) drafting using the software is very efficient, much more so than using model documents; and (3) I have a greater sense of security and risk management knowing the documents are constantly updated and by the responsiveness of the discussion board and other resources that ILS makes available to users. All in all, I cannot imagine practicing without it.”

Jessica A. Hayes

“I have been an ILS subscriber for over 11 years and find the service invaluable to my estate planning practice. You not only have access to a variety of forms that are customizable and updated on a regular basis, but you also have access to their library of work and the listserv. Where else can you have access to replies from Jonathan Blattmachr, Howard Zaritsky and Natalie Choate among others. I have and will continue to recommend ILS to fellow attorneys. Well worth the price of admission.”

Amos Goodall

"An attorney practicing elder law without the benefit of sophisticated software is foolhardy. On the other hand, an attorney who blindly plugs a client’s information into canned forms does his clients a disservice. InterActive Legal, with its unparalleled support and comprehensive draft documents that are fully and easily customized to fit clients’ personal situations, allows me to practice law efficiently and effectively. My clients deserve no less."

H. Amos Goodall, Jr., Esquire, LL.M., CELA

R. Hal Moorman

"I have been using InterActive Legal for a number of years. Like any technology, there is a learning curve, but they have an excellent staff to help you when you can’t figure something out. The forms can be as sophisticated or as simple as you desire. Because it is a system, it prompts you to make decisions as you do your drafting. If you don’t understand the question, the system has a tutorial to help you understand why it is asking you a question. The system is upgraded on a continual basis. I highly recommend it."

"I researched all the estate planning drafting systems on the market before purchasing ILS Wealth Transfer Planning. It is by far the best drafting system in terms of both the estate planning documents themselves and the resources and expertise available to users. ILS allows me to do sophisticated documents and, as a side benefit, I also use ILS for research and education."

Digital Assets Revisited: Preparing for the Tsunami

Digital assets have been on the radar of estate planners for many years, but their scope has recently expanded – exponentially.

The pandemic forced more people online than ever before, and each account, domain name, and other online presence may need to be addressed in some way when a client dies, or becomes incapacitated. Attorneys who both plan estates and administer them therefore need to understand the underlying issues related to different types of digital property.

Join us as experts in the area of digital assets cover the issues you should address with every client, and discuss helpful tools that may also assist with handling digital assets for your clients. The presenters will discuss:

  • The digitization of estate planning
  • How attorneys must adapt to new technology, or face being left behind
  • Digital asset problems in estate administration and how to handle them
  • How to handle digital assets when planning an estate – what to ask and what to look for
  • Why a standard provision in a Will or Trust may not be enough
  • Best practices
  • And more

Don’t miss this timely discussion of a topic that most of us may feel we have adequately covered, but actually may need to address in much more detail.

Single Clients: Planning Considerations

Too often planning articles and conferences use a “Cleaver family” as the touchstone for planning. The reality is that intact married family units constitute a small percentage of the population. Further, a tremendous percentage of the population is single and the proportion of the population that is single has grown substantially over the decades and that trend may continue. Over 50% of the population, about 125 million adults are single. That has increased dramatically from 1950 when the percentage was less than half that amount, 22%. Tax laws often favor married couples. Consider the unlimited estate tax marital deduction for US citizen spouses. The new proposals for deemed realization have an exclusion for US spouses that is not available to the heirs of a single client. Spousal rights of election protect a spouse from disinheritance. In contrast an unmarried partner may have little or no protection. How should documents be drafted differently? How might tax and other planning change? This webinar will provide a review of many of the nuances of planning for the single client.
