Why Should I Write A Will?

Surprisingly, despite many public awareness campaigns and nationwide ‘make a Will’ charity promotions every year, only 30% of us have actually made a Will. Most people intend to make one, but the hard part is ‘getting around to it’. Sadly, for their families and friends, most simply don’t. The lack of a legally valid Will can have catastrophic consequences.

What Is A Power of Attorney?

As always, fore-warned is fore-armed and we can prepare for a time when we may not be able to look after things entirely by ourselves. You may wish to appoint someone you trust to take care of your affairs if, in the future, you cannot do so yourself. That person would be your attorney.
