The New York Legal News Round Up
Define That Term #302

Online Will Websites, Part II

Erandisi_2_2 Thanks to all for some great comments.  Over the weekend, I saw a commercial on TV for a legal document drafting website and software, that was endorsed by a well-known attorney, but one who is not licensed in New York (according to the attorney directory at nycourts.gov). 

How does this affect the online will debate - i.e., a prominent attorney advertising an online product, where there is no attorney-client relationship created?  Is this going to lead customers to believe they are purchasing legal counsel?
