Absolutely. In fact, only a lawyer can even determine whether or not you should have a trust. While many people do benefit from having a trust as the cornerstone of their program, not everyone needs one. But, if you do need a trust, it should be prepared by a lawyer who regularly practices trust law, and only after he or she has a complete understanding of your personal situation.
It is illegal for anyone other than a lawyer to prepare legal documents such as a trust for you, or even to advise you that you should have a trust. And, quite frankly, it’s stupid for you to try to do something this complex yourself if you’re not a trained lawyer.
