There is a fine line that LegalZoom is walking on whether it is the unauthorized practice of law. Yet, there are differences to LegalZoom in comparison to software or even forms. LegalZoom skirts the attorney advice issue by providing suggested answers based on how other people answered questions. I have serious concerns about that practice.

While I disagree with LegalZoom's premise that it is not practicing law, I decided to provide a similar offering for estate planning only at http://www.coloradoetrust.com/. Attorney drafted and much more comprehensive than what LegalZoom offers.
