The simple answer to this question is, no, you don't need an attorney to make your will. You can make your will on your own. However, it is important to understand that there are very specific provisions that you should have in your will. In Florida, it has one of the highest standards for how you must execute your document. In other words, signing with other people in the room, signing again with the other people in the room, 2 witnesses, and then having all of your signatures notarized. That's a formality of execution that is required in Florida. A qualified attorney will make sure that you say what needs to be said, in the manner it needs to be said, and that your document will be formally executed so that there will be little to no challenges as to whether that will is a valid will or not in the state of Florida.
