The New York Times recently road tested four software programs that help generate wills and other estate planning documents. The results were published Friday in an article posted on “In Using Software to Write a Will, a Lawyer is Still Helpful”.

Quicken Willmaker Plus 2011 (written by Nolo) received high marks as the “most substantial” of the four programs tested, although the Times suggests that after using any will-generating software, it’s probably smart to run the final product past an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure that all your bases are covered.
