Do I have to wait to meet with an estate planning attorney until I decide if I want a will or a trust?

Absolutely not. Your attorney should be a key player in helping you determine what the best fit is for you and your loved ones. After your attorney learns more about you and your goals, your attorney will be able to review the advantages and disadvantages of a will or a trust based on your individual circumstances. This gives you guidance on the right fit for you far above the level of specificity Google can provide.
