We appreciate that there are some circumstances in which somebody might need to have a Will drawn up at very short notice, for example due to illness. Further, that it might not be possible to see a solicitor to provide them with instructions during their normal working hours.
There are a number of member firms who provide an out of office emergency Will service and their contact details are listed below:
