Make it easier with a will
March 1 hailed the start of a new initiative aimed at the over 55’s and hopes to address an issue that affects many if us but is rarely spoken of.
Will Month is a campaign to help people prepare or refine their will.
Many people will find themselves locked in legal affairs after the death of a loved one who has left no will or instructions on what to do after bereavement.
The absence of a will can have a devastating effect on those left behind, and legal arguments can often be costly and ongoing,but this new service could be the answer to the problem.
The idea is to book an appointment with one of the listed solicitors that is taking part in the scheme.
The company then draws up a will for you and once you have completed the business, you have the option to donate to one of the charities included in the event.
It’s quick and easy to do and the few moments you spend doing this, could save years of heartache in the future.
Compiling and drawing up your will is just one of the services your local solicitor can carry out for you.
When it comes to choosing a solicitor think carefully about what type of service you need, and whether you’d like your solicitor to have special expertise.
When you have a specific legal issue, it’s helpful to have a solicitor with special experience and expertise in dealing with problems or issues like the one you’re facing.
All solicitors are qualified to practise law in general and firms of solicitors are able to offer legal services covering a wide range of matters.
However, individual solicitors within firms may specialise in only one or two areas of law.
And if the firm of solicitors you normally use is unable to assist you with a particular matter, it will refer you to a firm who can.
