... it would be "p!ss poor" will that did not address in some fashion the scenario where a "would be heir" predecases the maker of the will.

Absolutely. But it does happen. Small-town attorneys who do wills, divorces, real estate closings, etc, are jacks of all trades and masters of none; so you will sometimes see glaring errors in wills they've prepared.

Even attorneys who specialize in estate planning aren't uniformly competent. DH & I interviewed four before finding one who addressed all our concerns adequately; and even within that (rather large) firm, after having DH's & my documents prepared, I was careful to get one particular attorney who would work best with my father, for his documents.
