Phil don't worry about my cynicism or your comments on same. I may be very far off base, but my feeling was the OP probably did not have a large estate i.e. not several hundred thousand. In short I felt there was a decent chance the person was being taken advantage of. I understand it is dangerous to engage in conclusion jumping particularly without facts.

Finally, I use lawyers - in fact just last summer we spend a few hundred having our Wills, General Powers of Attorney and Georgia Advanced Healthcare directives (think Living Will and Durable POA for Healthcare) redone.
