LegalZoom Scores Poorly in Consumer Reports Test

LegalZoom scored poorly, along with two other DIY alternatives (Rocket Lawyer and Quicken WillMaker Plus), in a Consumer Reports test of common fact patterns for estate planning (story here).  Even in a relatively simple nuclear family situation, LegalZoom was deemed inadequate.  All three products were deemed inadequate for the blended family situation tested, and LegalZoom in particular was criticized for multiple defects, including several criticisms regarding its “Legal Advantage” program which is supposed to provide some sort of attorney support.  Nor did any of these products fare well in the “single with partner” fact setting tested.
