How can I tell if a lawyer is qualified to assist me with planning my estate?

Many lawyers claim to do estate planning.  As someone who does a lot of probate and trust litigation, I am frequently appalled by some of the sloppy wills and trusts that I see.  Many lawyers simply purchase a computer estate planning program and type your name into the blanks.  This can result in a mess after your disability or death.
