How Can a Wills and Estates Lawyer Help?

Storing original documents and passwords with your lawyer is the best way to protect your digital assets. It is a lawyer’s ethical duty to protect the information, and the documents are stored in a safe custody facility.

Here are some of the advantages of storing your documents with a lawyer:

  • wills lawyer is qualified to draft your Will to reflect your wishes related to all your digital assets
  • Estate lawyers are bound by a strict code of ethics, which means you can give them authority over all your digital assets, including passwords, without fear of anything being misused
  • Appointing a lawyer as the executor for your digital assets means that you have a trained lawyer protecting your assets against fraudulent inheritance claims
  • If you would like extra protection, you can entrust your solicitor with a sealed envelope containing all passwords on a handwritten document
