Customer Question

I have an elderly friend who is trying to obtain a copy of her will. She is concerned with some changes that her grandson did through a lawyer that She no longer retains. We have tried to get a copy through this lawyer but due to an outstanding balance that she dispute owning, they decline on giving it to her until she settles up.. Can you suggest what she can do to obtain a copy of her will?

Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question. The Attorney is wrong to with hold the clients work because of a fee dispute. Your friend should file a complaint with the Disciplinary Board for Attorneys in her State. If you let me know what state I can look that up for you. Additionally, if she so desires she can write a new Will and in the New Will she would renounce all previous Wills. That way she would have an up to date Will and have it say exactly what she wants it to say. If here Estate is fairly simple and she does not have anything complicated going on she can have a Will Prepared very inexpensively. In fact there are good quality simple will available online taht she may be able to complete herself. I hope the information I provide is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask.
