Why Giving Docs?

Imagine this: your legacy is set. Your life's work will live on and become a part of the issues you care about. You've taken care of your family and other loved ones. And it only took you minutes to accomplish.

That entire scenario can come true quickly and easily with one action: creating a will with Giving Docs. It might seem less than urgent now, but taking the time to care for what's most important to you, no matter what life may bring, is immensely satisfying. At the same time, you'll be saving your loved ones from unnecessary strife down the road.

The founders of Giving Docs have experienced what happens when a loved one hasn't taken the time to create a will. We've all seen families in deep conflict, money wasted in courts, and finances delayed in probate proceedings. People think they need to spend thousands of dollars and set up complex trusts or other excessive legal documents to secure their estate. But there's an easier way.

Giving Docs co-founder Brantley Boyett has written numerous estate plans for his legal clients over the years as an attorney. Here's what he has to say: "he average fee for a basic will was $2,200. It wasn't fun legal work, and I hated charging for it. I recommended online services that were available at the time, but most of my clients returned for one reason or another. This is when I knew that we had to create a better solution. Everyone needs a will!"

Giving Docs is a pain-free way to create and manage your life's legacy through your estate plan.
