As part of our fixed price Wills and Powers of Attorney service we provide:

  • Two half hour consultations with a lawyer
  • Drafting of your will and powers of attorney covering medical, financial and guardianship decisions
  • Documents prepared and signed within 1 week or sooner
  • Final meeting to ensure that all documentation is signed correctly
