Customer Question
I am inquiring about...

I am inquiring about completing a simple will and how to go about it.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

In Victoria

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No. Not at this point in time. Was wanting low cost options that will hold up in a court of law if needed. Thank You :)

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you. There are several websites you can turn to that can draft a will for you if you don't want to go the slightly more traditional route of using an attorney.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
